He died hard.
He Harry Pottered.
He Robin Hooded.
He Sensed and Sensibilityed.
He caused me to create fake words.
Renowned thespian of the Shakespearean theater, Alan Rickman has been tossing a shiny slick coating of refined Union Jacked-charm over the Hollywood sign for the past three decades of Earth time.
A wealth of colorful characters under his belt, often portraying a menacing villain with a touch of ironically unironic Eurotrash sophistication thrown in for good measure. Through and through, Rickman’s genuinely an actor’s actor– time-tested, well-respected, almost British to a glorious fault, and graced with a sharper, drier sense of humor than he’s often credited with.
“Those of you who are not aware of my brilliant career as a stand up comic, I’m not aware of it either so we might well wonder what we’re doing here.”
And for all you “Al-manics”, drink some Gatorade and take this moment to stretch out those hamstrings.
Prepare to jump for joy 26 times… it’s time for…
