I just saw on the newsfeed that one of my favorite actors has passed away. All I could do was sit here and keep saying ‘no, no, no’ even though I know that we must eventually all pass to our next great adventure.
The thing is that Alan Rickman has been a favorite of mine for years, I was hooked on his skill when he played Hans in Die Hard and I’ve enjoyed many of the movies he was in including Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and the HP movies of course, but I think my very favorite part he played was Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest because it looked like such a fun part in a goofy movie and everyone should have a chance to be silly every once in awhile.
My condolences to the Rickman family, and many thanks to Alan for making the world a bit more entertaining. You will be missed.
