Stories: Alan Rickman

alan rickman

No sooner have we digested the news about David Bowie’s death, than we are hit again by another cancer-related demise. The British actor Alan Rickman has died from the same disease at the same age and in the same week as Bowie.   Although most famous for younger audiences as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movie series, I fell in love with him many moons ago when he starred with Juliet Stevenson in Anthony Minghella’s supremely affecting supernatural romance Truly, Madly, Deeply.

You won’t be surprised to see I have chosen this wonderful quote on stories to remember him by.  I imagine him saying these words in that sublimely languid voice he had.
