It’s a cruel world we live in, when brilliant, creative people are taken from us before their time. I hate it. For me, Alan will always be The Sherrif of Nottingham, that’s really when I first discovered his talents. For others he will be Hans Gruber and for an entire generation he will be always be Severus Snape. Whoever he was to you, however you discovered this man’s amazing talent, we can all agree that without him the world is a darker place.
