    A+, Mr. Rickman. A+.

  • Jon M Sable says:

    Very classy. Now if we can get the remainder of Hollywood to act this way, it'd be a good day.

  • blizzard bound says:

    Oh I love Alan Rickman. I find him soo sexy!

  • Hollyfeld says:

    That letter is pure class.
    Alan Rickman is a true gentleman.

  • Tallulah says:

    Oh, wow.

  • Cronniss says:

    If only! Its too bad that Alan Rickman isn't (necessarily) "Hollywood."
    I've "loved" him in all his roles. And when reading the Harry Potter series, I could imagine no one else filling the role of Professor Severus Snape. He was the best actor (imo) in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves ("I'll cut your heart out with a spoon!") and Galaxy Quest. And don't even get me started on his "reverential" portrayal of the Metatron in Dogma! (hehe)

  • Lorraine says:

    If only more actors were this classy. I've liked him all his movie roles and since reading the Harry Potter books, never imagined anyone else playing Prof Snape.
    I was ableto see him on broadway in Seminar-hopefully he will be back in NYC soon. (hehe)
