HARRY POTTER Legend Alan Rickman Passes Away Aged 69

HARRY POTTER Legend Alan Rickman Passes Away Aged 69

2016 has not gotten off to a great start. Just days after losing one beloved artist to cancer, it's being reported that British film and theater great Alan Rickman (Harry Potter, Die Hard, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) has also succumbed to the disease. More past the jump...


Painfully soon after we found out that David Bowie had passed away, reports are coming in that well-loved British stage and screen actor Alan Rickman has died in London after a battle with cancer, also at the age of 69.

Rickman will be best known to this generation for portraying Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies, but he's just as recognizable for his brilliantly villainous turn as Hans Gruber in the first Die Hard. Over the years he's left his mark playing many other diverse characters in movies such as Michael Collins, Galaxy Quest, and Dogma.

The Guardian first broke this terrible news, and it has since been confirmed by the actor's family. May you rest in peace, sir.
