The much-beloved late actor documented much of his life and now, fans can get their very own insight…
He had roles in some of the biggest movies of his lifetime and was an undeniable talent.
And was exceptionally versatile in his choice of roles.
We all remember Rickman for his incredible portrayal of Professor Snape in the beloved Harry Potter franchise.
Following a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He was sixty-nine years old.
Alongside his acting talents, he was also a prolific diary writer.
Rickman’s diaries over the last 25 years of his life are set to be compiled and published for fans to enjoy.
And now, his dreams are set to come true.
“I’m delighted that Canongate will be publishing Alan’s diaries, and couldn’t have wished for a finer appointment of editor than Alan Taylor,” Rickman’s wife Rima Horton said.
“His sense of humor, his sharp observation, his craftsmanship, and his devotion to the arts.”
Publisher Alan Taylor has called them “anecdotal, indiscreet, witty, gossipy and utterly candid.”
“More than anything though, the diaries reveal the real Alan Rickman, funny, passionate, occasionally provocative, and give fresh insight into his art.”
“They provide pitch-perfect vignettes: short, pithy paragraphs painting big pictures, and offering intriguing insights into himself, his peers and the world around him.”
We wouldn’t expect anything less!
