Terrible and sad news today, after the family of Alan Rickman - British acting legend and star of films like Love Actually and Harry Potter - confirmed that he has died.
Alan, who was just 69, had apparently been suffering from cancer.
For younger generations, he's best known for his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter film franchise, bringing the Potions teacher to life on the big screen and destroying all emotions in the vicinity with his final, heart-wrenching scene.
His acting career also includes roles in Die Hard, Robin Hood, and numerous stage productions.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
