Alan - Talent is... by SilentKW Alan - Talent is... by SilentKW
"Talent is an accident of genes - and a responsibility." - Alan Rickman

Done. This took a lot longer than I wanted it too, but this was my last week of College, and I had assignments exams to write. I had to squeeze this in when I could.

I just love this man. I discovered him when I was 9, back when Galaxy Quest first came out, and I thought he was just the greatest thing ever. Then, when I found out he was gonna play Snape in the Harry Potter movies, I was devoted for life.

When I was 12, I wrote a letter to him, and sent a picture. I handwrote the letter, and asked for his autograph. He sent the picture back to me, signed, and a nice letter from his agent. How could u not love this man. He also signed a picture for my younger cousin, who was 9 at the time. A lot of fans said they were getting letters of apology back, saying he was very busy and couldn't sign. But, he took the time to sign a few pics for 2 little kids. Is he not great?

So, that is my story, of my love for Alan Rickman.

WOO I love Alan Rickman too :) Ever since I saw him in "A Very Big Adventure", which was a very awkward and very sad but very good movie.
