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. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

You get to travel in some interesting circles. I do believe I'm at least a little bit jealous.

Having said that, however, I have to confess that this comment is nothing more than a shamelessly self serving attempt to pique your curiosity. 

I have been trying to articulate both an alternative to the current predominant economic operating system, as well as a new take on philosophy to serve as its foundation, for the last 16 years+. Perhaps you'll take a moment when you can to check it out. 

The main problem I'm having is that I'm not getting much in the way of questioning feedback on this. You can't hope to have anywhere near all of the answers until you get a good deal more of the questions first after all.

Just a thought.

I like this photo. It was taken, if I'm not mistaken, while rehearsing a scene where Alan clipped me and Rupert round the back of a head with a book. We all, apparently, found this hard to do without laughing.
