Alan Rickman


Steve Taylor-Bryant on the breaking news of the loss of Alan Rickman...

2016 is really trying my patience. Too many people are dying at an age they shouldn't be and, at 69, surely we all thought Alan Rickman was going to go on for a few more decades before his passing? Everyone I know loved Alan Rickman. My children through the Harry Potter films, my wife through Love Actually and Sense and Sensibility, most of the world through Die Hard or Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Me? Dogma. Dogma was hilarious and Rickman shone in a cast of stars as Metatron, the one true voice of God.

Whatever your way into Alan Rickman may you always remember his extraordinary voice and overwhelming talent.
