Alan Rickman has died at 69 from cancer. A great actor if not a big Hollywood name. Die Hard Robin Hood Harry Potter etc. Especially loved him in Star Trek spoof Galaxy Quest playing a character very close to Spock.

What a terrible week this has turned out to be with the loss of three such talented and much loved performers. He had lived with his high school sweetheart for 50 years before secretly marrying her last year. So very sad.

It really has been a bad week,another talented performer gone. On a more cheerful note, went to the Marlowe theatre in Canterbury yesterday evening to see Tommy Steele in the stage version of "The Glenn Miller Story" Terrific performance, one of the best shows I have ever seen with a 16 piece Glen Miller orchestra. Tommy plays Glenn Miller and is on stage throughout including singing and dancing, doing two per performances on two days of the week. Pretty good for a 79 year old. Still has that cheeky smile, a strong voice, slightly deeper than it used to be. Amazing!! Ken Finch.

I usually watch Die Hard at Christmas but didn't this year. Put it on last night in honour of Alan Rickman. He certainly lifted that film. One of the greatest movie villains.
