Vale Alan Rickman

21st February 1946 - 14th January 2016

I was so very saddened and shocked to hear of the death of Alan Rickman, one of the best-loved and most warmly admired British actors. A wonderful man and magnificent actor playing roles of many characters both in films and on stage, a man with the perfect voice.To me he will always be the kind and honorable Colonel Christopher Brandon in the 1995 screen adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Sense and Sensibility. Rest in peace dear Alan, you will be forever in our hearts, your legacy eternal.

It is a great loss for the world of actors, but also for the spectators too. Very sad. Regards.

Hello sweet friend Lucia, it is terribly sad that he has gone, I am so sad, one of my favourite actors, he had such a presence and had so much more to offer. I hope he did not suffer for too long with the cancer.
I watched my DVD of Sense and Sensibility last night and could not stop crying. He would have been 49 years when he made this film, he was so handsome and wonderful as the kind character Colonel Brandon.
Kisses and greetings

Thank you dear friend Giga , yes a great loss to the world of actors and all of us who became admirers of his great performances. I think I fell a little in love with him as the character of Colonel Brandon, his gentleness in this part has stayed with me always and as I am a true romantic I feel some emptiness because of his loss.
Kind regards

What a tragic, tragic loss. Such unbearable loss. I cannot even begin to comprehend a world without. Such capacity to sense the vital. If only...

Yes dear one,a tragic loss, I cannot believe that he has gone, his passing has left an emptiness. Thank goodness you are still here with me.
Thank you so much for the links, some memorable scenes from "Sense and Sensibility", moments which I truly love. I watched my DVD on Friday evening and it brought back so many memories, I was very emotional and in tears. The "Dust" short film shows the versatility of his acting, he says so much without speaking.
I have been watching some film clips this morning from his many films, his performances are brilliant, his dancing is amazing and the romantic scenes, tender and beautiful, those kisses...sigh!
Take care dear one and please come back soon.

Je salue la mémoire de cet artiste qui était trop jeune pour quitter notre terre.

Merci cher Roger pour vos paroles de bonté, oui, il était bien trop jeune pour quitter ce monde, mais sa mémoire vivra.
