RIP Alan Rickman

It’s with great sadness that we report the death of legendary actor Alan Rickman; known for such roles as Hans Gruber in Die Hard, Snape in Harry Potter, the Sheriff of Nottingham in 1991’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and many more.

This is a terrible shock and has come out of nowhere.

Rickman apparently had cancer and his death was confirmed on Thursday by his family who said that he died “surrounded by family and friends”.

RIP Mr. Rickman, you will be sorely missed.
