A UK actor by the name of Alan Rickman has just passed away. He is most famous as the role of Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” movie series and he was the main villain, Hans Gruber, in the first “Die Hard” movie. Alan also had roles in “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, “Galaxy Quest”, and “Sweeney Todd”. He also played Hilly Cristal in the “CBGB” movie which I just saw on Netflix not too long ago.
He was a talented actor and a sad loss in Hollywood. Alan Rickman was 69.
