Terribly sad news about the passing of Alan Rickman. A funny and engaging person who put a shy young actor at ease when I was on HP.

We told you that Alan married his longtime partner, Rima Horton, 68, in April of 2015 in a private NYC ceremony. They were true soulmates and had been living together since 1977. “We are married,” he said not too long after the ceremony. “Just recently. It was great, because no one was there. After the wedding in New York we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and ate lunch.”
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts go out to Alan’s family, friends and his fans.
