I was going to dedicate a post today on our adventures at the lake shore house (which I have now added a tab for) but I felt it was only right to pay tribute to one of my favourite actors who sadly just passed away this morning, Alan Rickman <3
Like so many, I knew Alan Rickman as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies. He was the perfect villain with his smooth, deep voice and sharp features. I thought he was the perfect role for the potions master professor.
Particularly after the very last Harry Potter movie, he easily became one of my favourite characters in the whole series. What I loved about Alan's portrayal of the character was he added a sense of humour, which it seemed he often did with his roles as the bad guy.
I also loved him in his famous role as Hans Gruber in Die Hard. He had me both laughing and slightly nervous at the same time.
And who could forget him in Love Actually?
First David Bowie this week and now a wonderful, legendary actor. Cancer certainly takes the best of us. But it will never take away our spirits and love.
Rest in peace sweet soul. Thank you for bringing the world your wonderful, talented gift.
