Funny guy, even in his diaries.  Sadly just as obsessed as any actor I've met with his weight, his appearance, and his "in" crowd.  It's a terrible job if you get noticed doing it, for your own personality I mean.

He is awesome in everything. To bad he had a bit of a Dust addiction

The jabs at Russel Brand and Ricky Gervais were on point.

Why? I like him even more now, and I liked him a lot before this.

Truly a case of "reading it in his voice."

A fine talent lost too soon.  Rest well, Alan.

Mrs Ukexpat is a huge Rickman fan, so now I know what to buy her for Christmas. Thanks subby and The Grauniad!

That was awesome. Thanks to subby! I laughed several times imagining his voice sharing those words.

He sounds exactly as I hoped he would be. I don't know that I could appreciate him if he were completely wholesome and never had an unkind word.

His expressions of disdain were among my favorite examples of the art. He made casual contempt into it's own artform.

When I'm feeling very clever and superior, I remind myself that I'm no Rickman (sometimes it's Carlin) to check myself.

7am The doctors come round and after dealing with catheters and drainage, finally, nervously get to the point - "How did you do the fall at the end of Die Hard?"


Ah, the man was brilliant even in his diaries.

Its been 34 years, let it go man.

That was a fun read.  His entries were short and to the point (though I'm not sure how much was edited out).  He did seem to be a little partial to Tim Burton, though.

21 October 8pm [To] Wembley Arena for Coldplay concert. They were wonderful - every song close to being an anthem already and incredibly moving to see that many people knowing the lyrics.

Was not expecting that.

I also found that to be odd.

That was a wonderful read. He was eloquent, funny, empathic, and a delight. We were blessed to have him.
