“… I am serious about my work, and this is possible only if the casual attitude to his own person …» (Alan Rickman)
Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman (Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman) was born February 21, 1946 in London, Hammersmith, England, in the Irish-Welsh family. He was 8 years old when his father died, leaving his mother with four children in her arms. Alan knew that he could not rely on anyone, and therefore learned so well that it was able to win a scholarship of the prestigious London School of Latimer, where he first came on the scene in the amateur production. After high school, Alan Rickman entered the Royal College of Art (Royal College of Art) at the Department of Graphic Design, and upon its completion in Soho opened his own design firm.
However, in the 26 years he realized that the theater still attracts him stronger. Throwing all, Alan entered the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, where he studied for three years. Another student received a number of prestigious awards for his roles in theater productions. To life moonlighting dresser Ralph Richardson and Nigel Hawthorne. And at the end of the Academy quickly became one of the leading actors of the London scene. Valmont Rickman played the role in the play “Dangerous Liaisons” became a sensation; London for the first time in the history of posters for the play (where Rickman appeared in all its glory) became a separate source of income for the theater administration. In 1986 he was invited to the statement of Broadway, where Rickman noted producer Joel Silver, invited him to play the main villain in “Die Hard.” This film glorified Rickman for the whole world … and at the same time made it impossible to play Valmont on the screen because the producers did not dare to take on the role of “Man of the militants.” Until now, Americans see Rickman ideal villain home in England although he sometimes plays cute characters (for example, in “Sense and Sensibility”, for which he received a BAFTA).
However, the roles of villains Alan Rickman can only be proud of – which is only one of the Sheriff of Nottingham spectacular production of “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.” This role brought Rickman BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor Award and the newspaper “Evening Standard” for Best Actor. Continuing to work regularly in the theater (including the title role in the London production of “Hamlet”, 1992, and as a director of a number of performances), starred in the satirical comedy “Bob Roberts” (1992), a biographical film “Mesmer” (1994; Award IFF in Toronto for the role, the film removed from the rental) and tragicomedy “An Awfully Big Adventure” (1995). In 1996 played ?amon de Valera in the biographical film Neil Jordan’s “Michael Collins” and Rasputin in the eponymous TV movie (Award “Emmy”, “Golden Globe”, “Golden Satellite” and the Screen Actors Guild).
Being a very successful film actor, he often refuses to roles in films in favor of the theater. (He’s talking about the theater as a “magical” place and calls it “first love”). Now he plays in a very successful play “private life” (Private Lives) to play Kavarda Noel (Noel Coward). The play was on October 4, 2001 to January 6, 2002.
In 1997, Rickman made his debut as a director, putting a thin and sad film “The Winter Guest” on the play by Sharman MacDonald.
Dream Rickman – own theater. A few years ago, he tried to buy a theater studio in Hammersmith Riverside, near the place where he was born and grew up. He did not succeed, but Rickman says that will not back down until it gets its way.
About his personal life Rickman prefers not apply. We only know that he was never married, and that so far his life’s companion was a teacher of economics Rima Horton.
