    That's a shame. Yes, may he rest in peace.

    I just spotted this. Too young, what a shame. So many people found him seriously sexy well into middle age - he really had something.

    Oh no! That is terribly sad. He was such a talented actor. I loved watching him. Far too young.

    Damn... RIP Mr Rickman, loved your work.

    Still have to see the film he directed with Kate Winslet.

    Mr. Rickman had a very strong screen and stage presence. He also seemed to be a very fine fellow. RIP

    Aw. Really liked him. Loved him in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves - he was the star not Costner.

    Rickman and Bowie were the same age, both taken by cancer within a few days of each other.

    The last thing Bowie did on twitter was to follow a spoof account named God.......

    Oh no! I am much more upset about his death than I was about David Bowie's. I was one of those who found him seriously sexy well into middle age. Damn shame.

    I suppose, like many, I first encountered him as Mr Slope in Barchester. I'm not sure he's done anything better.

    He had such a gravitational pull. When he was on-screen, the others stars revolved around him.

    If you haven't seen it already (and in fact, even if you have - we watch it every so often to cheer ourselves up), watch 'Galaxy Quest' - superbly funny, Rickman is great in it.
