You see the humanity.”Emma Thompson wrote in an email that during her frequent collaborations with Rickman, “It’s very difficult not to giggle, we laugh a lot, often in the wrong places.” Their most recent one is the BBC teleplay “The Song of Lunch,” which aired recently on PBS, in which Rickman plays an alcoholic poet trying to rekindle a love affair.

The actress, who wrote the Oscar-winning screenplay for “Sense and Sensibility” and starred with Rickman in that movie, noted that his performance in that film as Col. was everything I wanted for the role — virile yet sensitive, powerful yet quietly, slightly dangerous and miles more interesting than he is in the book…. But while he was always so strong and powerful, I also came to know him as self-deprecating, vulnerable and silly.”Watching him onstage, says Radcliffe, is to see a “virtuoso” in action.

His other film performances however showed the true depth of his acting abilities, playing future Irish Taoiseach and president Éamon de Valera in the film Michael Collins, alongside Liam Neeson and Brendan Gleeson, and showing his romantic side in British movies (Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility; Jamie in Truly, Madly, Deeply) Rickman has also demonstrated considerable talent as a comedy actor in films such as Galaxy Quest, Dogma, and Love Actually.

On Thursday, January 14, 2016, Rickman passed away from pancreatic cancer at the age of 69. He attended Latymer Upper School on a scholarship and then went on to study Graphic Design at Chelsea College Of Art and Design.

I’m not on that list.”Rickman’s wry insecurity is all the more surprising given his professional image as an assured, sexy and often enigmatic figure with a penetrating gaze and the ability to deliver the most innocuous phrase with sneering contempt. They [his characters] are just people to me,” Rickman says.

“I’m a lot less serious than people think.”Sam Gold, the director of “Seminar,” says: “Alan obviously has the ability to play imposing and intimidating characters, but what makes him special is his deep, deep well of empathy.

Like many actors and artists, Alan Rickman is a complex mix of passions and personality.

He talks about his love and respect for writing, and the insecurity and self-criticism that so many creative people experience.
