It has been a hard week on us all. We started out the week mourning the loss of David Bowie and now we are stricken by the tragic news that Alan Rickman has passed away. Rickman has devoted over 30 years of his life to acting – from the stage to the silver screen – he was a man who lived for his craft.
From his phenomenal acting skills to his legendary voice his performances are bound to leave an impression. He has a knack for the sinister with a menacing glare we loved to love – but that is not to say he doesn’t have a tender side with more sensitive roles. He was some one who could do it all.
Take a look at out 5 all time favorite picks of roles that will never be forgotten.
1. Harry Potter - Professor Severus Snape
2. Die Hard - Hans Gruber
3. Love Actually - Harry
3. Alice in Wonderland - Blue Caterpillar (voice)
4. Truly Madly Deeply - Jamie
5. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - Sheriff George of Nottingham
