Truly, Madly, Deeply – R.I.P. Alan Rickman

Well, I can’t say that I’m very impressed with 2016 so far. Now the wonderful actor Alan Rickman has been taken from us. The first time I saw him act was on the small screen, in a bit part in Smiley’s People. Anyone remember who he played? It says a lot about his talent that he could make such a small role so memorable. However the first feature film I saw him in was Truly, Madly, Deeply which co-starred the marvellous Juliet Stevenson. I cried more than I’d like to admit.

Anyway, by way of a tribute here he is singing, appropriately enough, The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore.

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman (1946-2016).
