The London born actor/director was surrounded by friends and family at the time of his death and will be greatly missed by those who knew him and his many fans.

Over the course of his career, Rickman has brought so many great characters to life; Eamon de Valera in Michael Collins, Metatron in Dogma, Harry in Love Actually and Marvin in the film adaptation of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, just to name a few.

Most fans will know him as professor Snape, who over the span of eight movies proved that there is more to people than meets the eye and that someone who seems to be full of darkness can actually be driven by love.

Thoughts are with his family.
