The news has been sad and troubling lately. Lord have mercy.
For geeks this week’s been sad.
Alan Rickman who was good at playing bad guys has left this world. He is best known for Severus Snape from the Harry Potter movies and the Sheriff of Notingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. He was memorable for his roles in movies like Sense and Sensibility and Galaxy Quest. Rickman was also great in Love Actually.
Thank you Alan for sharing your talents with the world. You will be missed by geeks and nerds everywhere.
