No apologies for blogging about the passing of the great Alan Rickman. So many wonderful roles in film, television and on stage.
Obadiah Slope in the Trollope adaptations was, I think, the first thing I knew him in, loved Truly Madly Deeply, of course my favourite Christmas film Die Hard and so many other things. I only saw him on stage once, as Hamlet at the Riverside Theatre Hammersmith, many many years ago but a lasting, wonderful memory.
A huge loss to stage and screen but, of course, more importantly to his family and friends.
