Theatre and Screen
My daughter is an actor and there are certain actors that we both love. One of them is Alan Rickman.
A renowned British actor of both stage and film. Mr Rickman won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (my daughter also studied there). He has since performed in modern as well as classical productions and is a former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Just a few of his outstanding credits:
- “Vicomte de Valmont”- Les Liaisons Dangereuses
- “Jamie” in Anthony Minghella’s – Truly Madly Deeply
- A singing role as “Judge Turpin” – a Sondheim adaptation for screen – Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
- “Severus Snape” – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
- My all time favorite: “Colonel Brandon” – Sense and Sensibility
If you have ever seen this man act, you will totally appreciate this video.
If you are new to Alan Rickman, a treat awaits you.
