“I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death.” Severus Snape, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Alan Rickman, a man of extraordinary talent, passed away today at the age of 69.

Most commonly remembered as the tragic anti-hero, Severus Snape, from the Harry Potter franchise, and as the villainous sheriff of Nottingham from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Alan Rickman succumbed to cancer, leaving a void in the cinematic world.
