Alan_Rickman

When I read of David Bowie’s death recently, I felt sorry that he had been sick. And admiration that he kept his illness private. And then, I watched “Lazarus” and was speechless.

A talent that spanned decades, took on so many forms. Isn’t it wonderful that artists’ creations live on long after the artist has passed?

And then this morning. Alan Rickman. He holds a place in my heart, a place smaller than the one I hold for my husband, who jokingly refers to Mr. Rickman as my ‘boyfriend.’ Also 69 years old, which seems alarmingly young to this 57-year-old. Also ill, and we didn’t know. So, in tribute to this immensely talented actor, I offer a few of my favorite Alan Rickman moments. Thank you, sir.

I didn’t expect two legends to leave us so suddenly. Great tribute! πŸ™‚

A very sad week indeed. Bowie’s songs were the background music of my youth – his passing is a sobering reminder of how many years have passed since then. But weren’t we lucky to have had Mr Bowie and Mr Rickman in our lives? their fabulous talent, the huge amount of please they gave us. What a wonderful gift they’ve shared and we’ve been able to enjoy.

Yep. Also surprised and very sad. I’m glad you included the Col. Brandon clip: that was my favorite role of his.

…I agree with you Martha…Alan Rickman was one of my favorite actors and β€œYes…Very Sexy”. When I heard of his passing this morning I texted Alexis with a very sad face.From: Martha Reynolds Writes iSent: Thursday, January 14, 2016 11:03 AM To: goodtwinri@verizon.net Subject: [New post] Passages

He’s one of my favorite actor. I will be watching Sense & Sensibility tonight.

I echo your sentiments, Sarah. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Yes, two very sad losses. And 69 is far too young (that’s from my vantage point of 59!). Bowie was never my favourite musician but some of his work I loved and speaks of my teens whenever I hear it. Rickman was a favourite actor and it’s heartbreaking that he’s gone as well.
