Actor Alan Rickman of "Harry Potter" Dies at 69


Alan Rickman, the actor who played Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series and Hans Gruber in Die Hard died Thursday following a short battle with cancer.
'Born to a working-class London family in 1946 and trained at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Rickman was often cast as the bad guy; with his rich, languid voice he could invest evil with wicked, irresistible relish," the Associated Press reports

   Rickman's Harry Potter castmates along with the author J.K. Rowling took to social media to express their condolences.

 Rickman is survived by his partner of 50 years, Rima Horton, whom he married in 2012
