RIP Alan Rickman

So for the last couple of weeks I have been reading my children Harry Potter. Last night I reached the part that Professor Snape is introduced. I read his parts in my ‘best’ Alan Rickman voice and reflected on how much I loved Alan in that role. He’s been one of my favourite actors for so long and his voice just makes me melt. He has also inspired me in many ways that I don’t talk about.
And the I woke up this morning.
It’s a sad day. So many greats in such sort succession. It’s been happening a lot these last few years. Only a few days it was Peeves in the book… and I thought of Rik Mayall, who was supposed to play Peeves (although he didn’t appear), which made me think of Robin Williams.
Why do the good ones go together? Not even a week and we’ve had David Bowie and now Alan Rickman. “Major Tom” has been looping in my head since the news of his death. I guess Professor Snape will be singing it now.
R.I.P. Alan Rickman. Thank you for inspiring me.
