I woke up this dark and somber morning only to find that the beloved, and very talented, Alan Rickman had passed away. Tears have been sporadically springing to my eyes, and the other part of me refuses to accept this sick joke.
Rickman passed away at the age of 69 after losing his battle with cancer. Friends and fans alike took to social media to honor and grieve the passing of such a legendary actor, including cast members of the Harry Potter franchise.

“I am devastated to hear about the passing of Alan Rickman, I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with him on numerous occasions – Even though he has gone – I will always hear his voice. My thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.”

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman. Radcliffe couldn't have said it any better. The world truly is a poorer place without your monumental presence and immense talents.
