Rickman starred as Hans Gruber, Bruce Willis’s adversary in Die Hard. Gruber was the first of memorable baddies played by Rickman: he played Professor Severus Snape in Harry Potter, a sheriff of Nottingham in 1991’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, as well as a terrifying Rasputin in a 1995 HBO film. Rickman was no stranger to Broadway as well, his breakthrough was in 1986 as Valmont, the mordant seducer in Christopher Hampton’s Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which got him a nomination for a Tony Award. We’ll Miss you Alan!
