If only Alan Rickman could be avenged! Damn you cancer!
It's been a rough start to the year when it comes to talented individuals dying. Cancer also took David Bowie, Dan Haggerty from Grizzly Adams, and Céline Dion's husband René Angélil from us this week as well. But the one who breaks my heart the most is Alan. Because no one delivers a line quite like he did. Between his accent, his deep tone of voice, and the way he held his body while speaking, he can't be matched. And because I've had a Hollywood crush on him for years!
He gave us many hated, many beloved characters over the years. From Hans Gruber and the Sheriff of Nottingham to Severus Snape and Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest, the movie from which my title paraphrases from. His talent shall be missed, but he will live on in video and in our memories.
