So far, in my life, I have felt sad many times while the world has lost many great people. Talented actors, actresses, singers, writers, athletes, inspiring people – I’ve been sad because they left a mark on the world, and I felt connected to them through their body of work. Yet, I have only cried twice in my life over the loss of an actor, once eight years ago when Heath Ledger passed unexpectedly, and today, when Alan Rickman lost his fight to cancer. And as another day in January becomes bitter and sweet, I will promise to remember all the greatness Alan Rickman left behind…
This is a really lovely tribute, I still can’t believe he’s gone.
Can’t believe it either. Such a devastating loss.
Very heartfelt piece. He will certainly be missed.
Lovely tribute Mettel. 🙂
Thank you! I felt like I needed to do this.. for a great actor!
Awful loss. He was an incredibly talented man. The only consolation is that his films and performances are immortal.
It is.. so awful. And true, his work will be timeless and when the sadness fades, we’ll have amazing memories each time we’ll watch his performances.
Why him now? I hate 2016 already 🙁
This year has started off quite devastatingly indeed. Hopefully it can only get better from here.
Beautiful tribute. What a rough start to 2016.
It is. Hopefully it will get better.
It’s been a rough week. Great tribute. He’s an inspiration through his legacy of work…
Indeed, his work will live on!
Still gutted by the death of David Bowie and now this. I LOVE LOVE Mr Rickman, I’m definitely doing a proper tribute for him, I love him in SO many roles. What’s more, he sounds like an amazing human being as well as a great actor.
I definitely like him in most of the movies I’ve seen him in.. but I’m definitely most gutted about watching Harry Potter and Love Actually again, because I know seeing him will hurt.
Such a loss. He’s had so many wonderful roles.
Indeed! But it’s those great roles that he has left behind that will keep him in our memory.
