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.

Check Out This Awesome Comet ISON Simulator

If you want a better idea of exactly how Comet ISON is going to move through our Solar System, and when it'll be visible, take a look at this really cool Comet ISON Simulator from Solar System Scope:

I used the "Inspect element" thing in Chrome to see that it's actually a PNG. Haha.

Used this to help me in making a bow tie for my Halloween costume. Of course, my costume's is comically big, so I had to use +Inkscape to make a new pattern. It did turn out well after I decided to pre-fuse the interfacing to that oh-so-slippery fabric.

Get ready to see comet Pan-STARRS

Starting this weekend, a bright(ish) comet will be visible in the west just after sunset to folks in the northern hemisphere. I have the details on how to find it:

Our waiter, Ken, was great and very attentive. Our group of three ordered two pizzas, which was about perfect for lunch. The food was delicious, and when the bill came, it was very reasonable.
