Years have passed since his death, but Alan Rickman continues to surprise us with his kindness and generosity - and now, a new story of this nature has emerged.
Here's the full story...
Alan Rickman left behind nothing but good memories for us all...
He worked in the industry for many years.
And of course...We all remember Rickman for his incredible portrayal of Professor Snape in the beloved Harry Potter franchise.
But tragically, Rickman passed away in January of 2016...
But there are things many fans don't know about Rickman...
First of all, alongside his acting talents, he was also a prolific diary writer.
Rickman's diaries from the last twenty-five-years of his life are set to be compiled and published for fans to enjoy.
They will be made public in Autumn 2022.
"The diaries reveal not just Alan Rickman the actor, but the real Alan."
They certainly sound like a must-read.
"They make for compulsive reading and offer a peerless insight into the daily life of a remarkable actor who was as beloved in the U.S as he surely was in the U.K."
"He wrote his diaries as if chatting with a close friend."
"They are intimate, perceptive, and very funny."
And it's no secret that his charms seep beyond his writing...
On the fifth anniversary of his death, one of his co-stars, Kate Winslet, paid homage to the actor with some heartwarming anecdotes which only made us miss him more.
Winslet revealed he'd secretly pay for dinners with close friends without their knowledge...
And even when they protested or offered to pick it up themselves, he would never let them.
In a piece she penned for Entertainment Weekly back in 2017, she said this:
"He was always a great big softy. If there was one word I could use to really describe Al, it would be kind. He was so kind."
"At Al's memorial, Juliet Stevenson told the story of how whenever Al would go out to supper and anyone else would try and pay, he would somehow have phoned ahead or slipped his credit card ahead of the meal so no one even got a look at the cheque."
"He'd just say, ''I've got two words for you: Harry Potter.'' And he became known for doing that."
And if you're not convinced on just how generous this man is...
Before his death, he left portions of his fortune to various different charities.
The actor leftover $5 million in his will including legacies of $135,000 to 2 other charities.
He also left $33,000 each to art schools...
Including the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Sponsored Arts for Education, the Facial Surgery Research Foundation, and the International Performers Aid Trust.
What a kind man.
Rest in peace, Alan Rickman.
