Seriously, two monumental people in the space of a week? Seriously?
Dear Alan Rickman,
Did you know that Robin Hood, where you played the sheriff of Sherwood, was the first VHS that I ever recorded from my television?
I saw Bruce Willis kill you. I saw Johnny Depp put a knife to your throat. I’ve seen you laugh in Sense and Sensibility. I have seen you love, cheat and regret in Love Actually. I have seen you love so much in Harry Potter. And yes I am that generation but that is probably the role I know you most from. Because strangely, I feel like I know you. Even if I haven’t met you. Now you will never be 80 and you will never be in your rocking chair reading Harry Potter. And somehow, that hurts.
Sorry to see you go Alan and be sure one of the wands pointing the night sky yesterday was mine.
