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.

As ever, eloquently written sir

Although I do have to disagree with this -

"We live in a very cynical world and most people are very quick to see through most of the chaff"

I agree we live in a very cynical world but it's one where people appear to have blinkers up and choose to not see through the chaff.

You have those who won't look at the news at all, stating no interest or that it's too depressing. So their knowledge of events outside their life is limited to
Buzzfeed articles or what people post on Facebook. 

Then you have those who believe they're informed but only ever look at their chosen slice of the internet. So never get any sense of perspective from other sides of the story.

Very very few people have an interest in actually trying to get a balanced perspective on world events. Mostly because it's so f'ing depressing but it's also hard to do. The conflict in Eastern Ukraine for instance, all of the UK news sources show the agreed EU position that new government in Kiev = good, separatists & Russia = bad. The truth is much greyer and less clear cut. But to really find out about what's really going on out there you have to dig about some pretty shady sites to find information on the alternative side of the story. Now those stories are just as one sided & biased as the UK media's, but it's only once you've seen both sides can you actually make a balanced view of what's going on there.

So, yes, people are cynics. But they're lazy ill-informed cynics with a very vocal opinion.
