Alan Rickman (1946 – 2016)
Um, OK, this is getting fucking ridiculous now – Alan Rickman? At 69? Jesus fucking Christ. Well, not being a fan of the Harry Potter films I think we all know his most famous and memorable role, that which brought him to the attention of a global audience and set the bar exceptionally high for the darkly charismatic Hollywood villain you secretly cheered on – or was that just me? Oh, and fuck cancer. Right in its hideous little eye.
He was also beloved in Galaxy Quest which deserves a rewatch, I also know a lot of people who absolutely love Truly Madly Deeply which takes on an even more sombre mood now….
