My life in the country with my 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.
