Art: In Memory of Alan Rickman - sharing the sadness and shock... [Jan. 16th, 2016|03:00 pm]

Alan Rickman was without question one of my most favorite actors of all time. His untimely death has been a shock and I have felt this loss keenly. I am also deeply grateful for all the joy he has given me - from his stealing-the-show performance as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves to his heartful portrayal of Col. Brandon in Sense and Sensibility to the glorious silliness that was Galaxy Quest (to name a few) - I have loved all of them. But perhaps above all, he was Professor Severus Snape. He will so be missed.

What a beautiful tribute to an outstanding person and wonderful actor. Such a strange and sad fact that Alan Rickman and David Bowie both died at the same age within a few days of each other.

Thank you, dear. He was, himself, iconic as Snape, and much loved. I know this was very saddening for you, too. *hugs*

Truer words you have spoken. I was very saddened to hear the news. I didn't even know about it until I came over to live journal last night. Such a great loss, as an actor and as a good man. Your art tribute to Professor Snape is stunningly perfect, with Professor Snape's poise, colors within the artwork , and the words posted.

Thank you, dear. Yes, such sad news and such a shock, especially right on the heels of David Bowie's death. A very great loss, indeed. *hugs*

I was devastated when I heard about David Bowie. I actually cried. He was a musical genius. I grew up with this music. I attended his concert in Rochester ,New York. I was with a college girlfriend. One of the stage crew put / shown a stage light on us in our seats for some seconds, which was fun but embarrassing. David put on an awesome show. His voice, with the ranges and the emotion in it, I will never forget. I am devastated. ( That was his first and last show in Rochester New York, because some jerk undercover female cop lured him, he invited her to his hotel, he took out a little pot, and she arrested him. I was furious. The city lost a ton of revenue for doing that to him. ) David's revenge was he would book concerts in Buffalo and Rochester, and cancel the Rochester concert at the last minute. -- *** I am glad he had a good 22 year marriage with Iman, and they have an 11 year old daughter, and I think he has an adult son from another relationship /marriage. He was able to enjoy the fruits of his labor in his latter years, and I was glad for him.

Yes, he was another incredibly great artist and such a sad loss. Thanks for sharing your memories of him. I never saw him in concert, but enjoyed his music very much, and the movie Labyrinth has always been a favorite of mine. I think I may watch that again soon. *hugs*

*cries*

He was such a perfect Snape. (Well, he was fantastic at just about everything. But - Snape!) Thank you for capturing him so beautifully.
