Last week another great actor left, rather suddenly I would say, as most of us were not aware that he was ill. Alan Rickman was one of my favorite actors. His roles have marked my childhood, not only because he was in the majority of the films that I used to watch as a child and teenager, but also because my best friend was an uber fan - utterly in love with him. And how can one not fall in love with Alan Rickman? His amazing voice and acting skills, have mesmerized us in more than 60 roles, from the second best villain ever (after Darth Vader) Hans Gruber in Die Hard, to legendary Club owner Hilly Krystal in CBGB, up to our beloved Professor Snape… With his amazing performances, Rickman was a constant inspiration to young actors.
If I had to somehow narrow down my favorite performances, it would have to be:
He will be missed...
Ever since I first set foot on a cinema theatre, I knew that something magical was happening there....
