Last weekend I was browsing YouTube and I found this video in the Official Channel of Slash (I went to the concert of Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators in Seattle last month and it was absolutely amazing).
After watching this music video I knew that I had to share it here because is really creative and well made, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂
Today my husband woke me up with the news that Alan Rickman (one of my favorites actors) died at the age of 69, to say I was surprised and in complete shock is an understatement.
The first time I watched Alan Rickman’s acting was in “Sense & Sensibility”(the adaptation from Jane Austen’s book, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet), where he plays the role of Colonel Brandon, and immediately I became his fan.
Below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie (Colonel Christopher Brandon reading to Marianne Dashwood):
Besides his role in “Sense & Sensibility”, watching him like Severus Snape in “Harry Potter”, as Harry in “Love Actually”, as Hans Gruber in “Die Hard” and some others, shows his versatility as an actor and one of the reasons why he is admired by many.
Below are some of the most important scenes from his role as Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” Movies.
His death is a great loss and he’ll be sorely missed.
If people want to know who I am, it is all in the work.
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make new mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
― Neil Gaiman
