Have You Read Alan Rickman’s Wonderful Thank-You Note to J. K. Rowling?

This morning, I was very sorry to see that actor Alan Rickman had died. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, and among other roles, Rickman was a terrific Severeus Snape in the Harry Potter movies.

Thinking about him, I was reminded of the lovely thank-you note that he dedicated to J. K. Rowling. It makes me happy every time I think of it.

    I didn’t realise Alan was in The Potter films, because he is I will watch them. Such a great actor and very sad he has passed. Thank YOU Alan, for everything you have given to all of us.

    I remember when he played The Metatron in Dogma, when he was explaining to Bethany that he was “the voice of God”. I thought, “boy, did they ever cast that part correctly!” He will always be “The Voice” to me. It’s a sad day for me; he was my favorite actor, and a class act. I hope that he knew how much he meant to so many people.

  • Such a gorgeous note. What a loss for us all.

    I feel the need to re-watch Truly, Madly, Deeply. In the meantime, will have to be satisfied with this clip: http://www.slashfilm.com/remembering-alan-rickman/
