    So much so, I had to post three images of him, apparently.

    Late Bloomer - I usually become a fan of a celebrity based on his/her voice, and Alan Rickman is in my top list. I’ve been wanting to collect audiobooks read by my favorite actors, and Alan did some that I will definitely buy.

    Saintbertholdt and pbrow - I haven’t seen Die Hard in a long time, oh mate, it really is the best Christmas movie!

    GoneAwol - Alan’s performance made me root for the Sheriff of Nottingham (like how I secretly rooted for Snape).

    Heaven and Saintbertholdt - That’s exactly the first thing I thought of when I heard the news. I’m curious to check who else is 69 but a little scared, too…

    Gentledawn - I was cringing in my seat with anxiety when I first saw this movie because I didn't want to see Johnny Depp's Sweeney Todd role killing Alan's.

    Xanthippe - I always give extra kudos and respect to celebs who are able to maintain their marriages for so long.

    Cadellin - If I could edit my original topic post, I would add those photos (all three). Time to change my wallpaper at work…

    Lovely actor. Great voice. Will do some movie watching this weekend to catch what I've missed of his. RIP Mr. Rickman.

    He played an excellent role as the sheriff of Nottingham in Robinhood, one of the best movies ever.

    [the Sheriff has said he'll cut out Robin Hood's heart with a spoon]

    Guy of Gisborne: Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?

    Sheriff of Nottingham: Because it's DULL, you twit. It'll hurt more.

    Sheriff of Nottingham: Wait a minute. Robin Hood steals money from my pocket, forcing me to hurt the public, and they love him for it?

    [Scribe nods]

    Sheriff of Nottingham: That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

    I loved him in Sense & Sensibility as Brandon, the love interest to Marrianne (Kate Winslet). One of the greats. So sad.

    I just read about this today, and gosh, just very sad. Not only one of our greatest actors, but a truly lovely person as well. RIP

    You will be missed - Truly, Madly, Deeply. : '(
