Beloved Actor Alan Rickman Leaves a Legacy

Alan Rickman, beloved Harry Potter actor, passed away at the age of 69 from cancer on Thursday, January 14th. It has been said, by BBC, that his battle with cancer was short, and his passing was rather unexpected. Rickman is best known for his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films, but his career actually started on the stage with the UK Royal Shakespeare Company in West London, but Rickman was not seen on screen until 1978 in the BBC production of Romeo and Juliet as Tybalt. He earned his first film role, ¨Die Hard¨, after only two days in Hollywood, in 1988. His career in the film industry skyrocketed from this role, and throughout his life he gained 68 film credits, and even did some work as a director in his later career. His impressive career in the industry also earned Rickman an Emmy, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA award, and thirteen other credible awards. Rickman was not only an incredibly talented actor, he was also an inspirational man. He taught fans everywhere many life lessons through his roles and his own life. He believed in the worth of doing things with your life, he once told a coworker ¨if it doesn´t have risk it is not worth doing.¨ This is just one example of Rickman's valuable life lessons to fans everywhere. We are sad to lose such an influential actor, and hope that his legacy will continue to inspire fans.
