I am not best pleased with the decline in the number of golden-voiced British men this year.

The Independent tweeted this link in a bid to raise spirits: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/alan-rickman-admits-editing-terrible-script-with-friends-in-pizza-hut-behind-backs-of-writers-on-10185726.html I find the whole scene so incredibly easy to imagine. Though I was never lucky enough to see Rickman perform live, I saw him talk about his performances at several pressers and Q&As and he was unfailingly delightful: courteous but sparky and not afraid to gently tell people that they were perhaps missing several essential points, such as writers being interested in words, actors being interested in writing, and women being people.

And, a fave Rickman moment on film:


While his Snape was unforgettable, his every performance was astonishing (admittedly the eyes very open variety in Robin Hood and Die Hard, but brilliantly mad in both) and his decency shone.

I know that we are all mortal, but it is more than a bit crap to see horrible people live seemingly forever while the talented and lovely ones go too soon.
