I recently received news from a friend that Alan Rickman has died aged only 69 (of cancer). I was obviously very shocked to hear this and of course upset to hear about the death of someone I think of as a personal inspiration.
Rickman was a brilliant actor, playwright and man and I have to thank him for bringing so many characters to life.
Perhaps this post was a little abrupt, but I can't really fathom my words.
I'm not looking for comments on this post, that's not why I posted this. If you can, please go and donate to Cancer Research (or any cancer support charity). It would mean a lot more.
