IN MEMORIAM: Alan Rickman

Dead aged 69 of cancer.

He was a brilliant actor, and not just as Professor Snape. He played a betrayed husband in Close My Eyes, a ghost returning to his grieving girlfriend in Truly Madly Deeply, an embittered actor in Galaxy Quest, a wine connoisseur in Bottle Shock, a Yorkshire hairdresser in Blow Dry, an eerily convincing Ronald Reagan in The Butler, and so many other roles. Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility. The Metatron -- the Voice of God -- in Dogma.

I am so sorry he's gone.
