Congratulations to "Colleen C.", the winner in Angi's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!
I had a totally different post planned for today. Then Alan Rickman died. Normally, I think how sad for an actor’s family and loved ones. Several days later and I’m still sad. He was the bad boy personified…that voice !! The way he delivered a line. And he had a lot of them. I, like many Americans, first noticed him in Die Hard (a movie I never tire of) with what became an iconic death scene.
Alan Rickman was possibly my favorite actor as a villain of all time. Great writing helped, but it was his delivery. His eye-roll. His waiting-for-all-the-other-bad-guys-to-catch-up-with-him look. Life would not be the same without this line…
I won’t forget the non-villainous roles either…
But my favorite, probably because I’m a Trekkie at heart…
I will remember Alan Rickman right up there with John Wayne, Katherine Hepburn, Fred Astaire, Karen Carpenter…and many others who have given us so many countless hours of entertainment and great places to forget about reality.
Don’t forget to enter the giveaways.
