What an actor; will be remembered for some of *the* great flamboyant baddies ever to appear on screen (and stage).

Losing icons faster than we're producing them. Pure gutted.

With lemmy, Bowie and now rickman it's crazy on the talent we have lost. My dad has been back in hospital since Lemmy passed on the 28th and is still there.

His problems linked to his cancer has spring up again, and my mum daren't tell my dad who has passed seeing as he was a fan of all three. It would kill his mood even more bless him.

Sorry to hear about your Dad's health problems, silvergunner. I hope he gets better.

RIP to Hans Gruber, Professor Snape and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Really sad, as only last year - he had directed another film A Little Chaos with Kate Winslet.

Thanks.

I'm finally going to visit him tonight for the first time. Had a massive chest infection so I did not dare go in and visit sooner with his immune system being so weak at the moment.

Just picked up Galaxy Quest on DVD; long time since I've seen it but I do remember it being rather good. Dogma was the only Kevin Smith film I continued to like after I stopped being a teenager as well.

He was brilliant! Galaxy Quest is a very underrated film too. My wife's favourite film is Truly, Madly, Deeply
