Last week I found out that Alan Rickman died. I was so shocked. I loved Alan Rickman as an actor. He was so incredibly good at what he did and there was something to him that you don't see in many people. He certainly made characters his own. He is the reason, "By Grabthar's Hammer..." Has so much meaning. He is the reason that I actually like Severus Snape. Yep. He is the reason. No one could have portrayed that dark, brooding teacher better than him. He did an amazing job with him. When I heard that he died, I sat down and just stared for a while. Then I got the sudden urge to watch Galaxy Quest and all of the Harry Potter movies. Then I curled up and felt sad all over.
|And it’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.|
