Alan Rickman dies of cancer at age 69.
We first met him as the villainous, Hans Gruber in the late 80s.
He was the guy we loved to hate in Die Hard Then he became a true star of stage and screen in a myriad of memorable roles. However, the role we will always remember for is Professor Snape in the Harry Potter series.
This has been a tough week. We have lost two great talents. First David Bowie and now Alan Rickman. Both will live on forever through their work.
