Warner BrothersIconic British actor Alan Rickman died at age 69 after a battle with cancer. Those who knew him best, along with lifelong fans, have expressed their shock and grief on various social media sites. "Harry Potter" actor Daniel Radcliffe, who is known for staying away from social media, shared his thoughts in a Google Plus post, an odd choice considering no one really uses Google+.
I have just returned from the dubbing studio where I spoke into a microphone as Severus Snape for the last time. On the screen were some flashback shots of Daniel, Emma, and Rupert from ten years ago. They were 12. I have also recently returned from New York, and while I was there, I saw Daniel singing and dancing (brilliantly) on Broadway. A lifetime seems to have passed in minutes.
