My life in the country with my goats.com site

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.

Enjoy!
