You're not in Kansas anymore…

Alan Rickman

This week’s hottie is the actor Alan Rickman, full name: Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman. First of all, I have to say that I am in this moment amazed to find out that this wonderful man is actually 64 years old. Talk about aging gracefully!

Anyway, Rickman actually began his working career as a graphic designer, however, he soon realized that acting was the way to go and requested an audition at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, which he was granted. The academy, being of good sense, accepted him into the school and magic began to happen.

After a few years working with various theatre groups, Rickman landed his first big film role: Hans Gruber, the villain in Die Hard II. This character made him one of the world’s favorite villains, and I’m sure you all agree, he makes a wonderful villain indeed.

And here are some other famous characters he has played:

Snape

Colonel Brandon

Dr. Lazarus

Metatron

Marvin

The Caterpillar

Judge Turpin

Rickman is really a versatile actor and he has had success as a director. But what really dots the i, so to speak, is his deep, dark voice, and his ability to express  enourmous amounts of contempt with just one single word or look. He truly is worthy of the honorable hottie-title.

Enjoy some more pictures of him:

Love, Elin
