Movie News: Alan Rickman Dies, Age 69

As if losing David Bowie earlier this week wasn’t enough – Alan Rickman passed on today.

Rickman was suffering from cancer and was best known for his roles as Professor Snape in Harry Potter, The Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves and Hans Gruber in Die Hard. He also made appearances in less popular films such as Galaxy Quest and Gambit and though he never managed to snag that Oscar he won both a Golden Globe & an Emmy Award – Well played sir, you will be sorely missed.

Rickman can be seen one final time in the recently released Eye In The Sky that made its debut at The Toronto Film Festival last year with much accolade.

Alan leaves us with these final words of wisdom;

“Actors are agents of change, a film, a piece of theatre, a piece of music, or a book can make a difference. It can change the world.”

Werner is a strange one...he quotes a lot of things...incoherently I might add, also he reviews stuff from time to time. We still don't truly understand what he is or where he came from. To quote him verbatim: Make sure they see my twitter handle so I can get hookers and drugs.
