Alan Rickman


What is not to like about Alan Rickman? After leaving television to play the character Hans Gruber, or should I say 'Clay... Bill Clay', in probably the best action film ever made, Die Hard, Rickman proved that he was as cool as they come.

Rickman continued his bad guy persona with roles in Quigley Down Under and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. One of the great things about Alan Rickman in both these roles is that no matter how bad and mean he is, you can't help liking his characters. This is one charming son of a bitch!

Rickman finished the century off with a pleasing appearance in Kevin Smith's Dogma and a hilarious role in the Star Trek parody Galaxy Quest starring Tim Allen. Actually, it was Alan Rickman that convinced me that the sci-fi comedy was worth a viewing, and I had a great time.

While most over the age of twenty know Alan Rickman for his role in Die Hard, it was the Harry Potter films that helped boost Alan Rickman's popularity with the younger moviegoers. Through playing the mysterious role of Professor Snape, Alan Rickman shows just what a class act actor he really is.

Can Rickman do romantic comedy? Sure! Alan Rickman plays Harry in the wonderfully funny film Love Actually.
