Memorial thread.

Let us think, too, of the Snape-wives. What are your favorite Rickman roles? I liked him in HP and Sweeney Todd.

My favorites are Colonel Brandon and Prof. Snape.
And Sheriff of Nottingham not far behind.

Me too. I'd add Hans Gruber to the list as well.

I was shocked to read that Hans Gruber was his first film role!

I love Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It was one of my big faves when I was a kid, and I still can't resist it in all its campy glory. And I'd say about 90% of that is Rickman. He was brilliant. And I loved him in Galaxy Quest too, and Dogma, and Sense and Sensibility... I could go on and on. What a legend.

I knew he was kind to his little colleagues in the Harry Potter movies, but as the tributes pour in I have to say I'm surprised and touched and impressed at just how much effort he seems to have put into being a mentor to young actors. You have to hope that's created a mindset in those young actors to treat their own future young colleagues in the same way-- which would be a wonderful lasting tribute to Rickman's memory.

I loved him as Colonel Brandon, absolutely loved him. But then, I pretty much loved him in everything I saw him in. I remember how excited I was to find out he'd been cast as Snape.

He was a marvelous actor, and it seems that he was an excellent human being.

Two of my favorite movies of his aren't available in the U.S: Truly, Madly, Deeply and Rasputin. Truly, Madly, Deeply destroys me every time I watch it--I can't describe it to people without sobbing. And Rasputin, from HBO, is such an interesting performance and has Ian McKellen (who is also amazing).

I watched Sense and Sensibility last night. I love, love, love his Colonel Brandon. So much so that I still want him to end up with Elinor and toss the whole lot of Ferrars.

I'm going to miss seeing what he does next. He was always such a surprise in every role.

McKellen posted about Raputin and Rickman won a Golden Globe for it so hopefully HBO gets off their ass and puts it on HBOGO. I'm obsessed with WWI so I love it, but even still talk about a part Rickman was born to play.

Galaxy Quest is so fucking good! It actually manages to transcend the satire a few times and give some actual emotion. Particularly when Rickman stows his I Am Not Spock disgruntlement and comforts his dying friend with the catchpharse he hates.

I still remember the he was a flat out revelation as Hans Gruber in Die Hard.

A Little Chaos is on Netflix. Alan Rickman was a class act when it came to the reaction shot that spoke volumes but was still understated.
