BBC: Actor Alan Rickman dies aged 69, of cancer.
- Fuck cancer.
- I didn’t realize until today how many of my favorite films Alan Rickman was in – the Harry Potter series, Dogma, Galaxy Quest, Die Hard… It’s an overwhelmingly stellar film list and a testament to his ability and skill as an actor.
- When I next re-read the Harry Potter series, his voice will always be my Professor Snape. He is Severus Snape for me. I will never lose that, his performance was so powerful.
- 2016 is awful. First David Bowie, now Alan Rickman — and earlier this year, Natalie Cole passed away too.
God must have something to say, she's called the Metatron back home.
