THE SAD PASSING of actor Alan Rickman at the age of 69 was confirmed this morning.
And stars of stage and screen have been quick to pay emotional tribute to the late English actor:
Oliver Phelps, who played George Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, tweeted his praise of a legend
And Boy George regarded his appearances in Harry Potter as “genius”
His Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe shared his thoughts on Google Plus
Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I’ve ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter.
Dara Ó Briain referenced his iconic role in Die Hard
In a week that David Bowie was lost as well
This afternoon, they have been sharing their favourite memories of Rickman on screen
And other actors have been telling of their experiences of working with him
The memories of his many quotes have come flooding out
The whole acting community has come together in grief
And Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden mourned a friend
And the creator of Snape himself had this fine tribute
RIP Alan Rickman :(
