2016 has begun and just two weeks in we have lost our second legend of entertainment. Less than a week after the untimely passing of Pop legend David Bowie we now bid farewell to legend of the screen, Alan Rickman. The entertainment world was left gasp as news that 69 year old Rickman had died from cancer. 

Probably most easily recognised for his role as ‘Snape‘ in the Harry Potter series, Alan Rickman’s impact on the silver screen spans well beyond the walls of Hogwarts.


Rickman also starred as the iconic Hans Gruber from Die Hard, the Sherrif of Nottingham in the cult favourite Robin Hood: Prince Of Theives and Metatron in the Ben Affleck and Matt Damon cult classic Dogma. The world of entertainment mourns the passing of a truly great and inspiring actor

R.I.P to a true legend of the big and small screen.
