Week of Heartbreak
This week hasn't been easy for people.
On Monday, we were alerted that legend David Bowie passed away from Cancer.
Today though.... This one breaks my heart on a whole other level!
Alan Rickman passed away last night from cancer at age 69. This man was a great talent, probably best known for his role as Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter franchise. He also played the voice ofThe Blue Caterpillar in the live action Alice and Wonderland, Judge Turpin in Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and The Sheriff of Nottinghamfrom Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves just to name a few. Here is the story from BBC America.
Severus Snape was always one of my favorite characters from the series, even before Alan Rickman brought him to life in the movie adaptation. I don't think they could've picked anyone better to play him!!! This news means there is a Harry Potter marathon on the horizon for me and my bestie Sarah in his honor.
Here are some YouTube videos you guys need to see:
