Alan Rickman

‘Harry Potter’ star Alan Rickman will be honoured at the upcoming Giffoni Film Festival. Rickman has been selected as this year’s recipient of the prestigious Francois Truffaut Award, which is named after the iconic French New Wave filmmaker who championed the Giffoni Film Festival.

He is being highlighted for his work as Severus Snape in the ‘Harry Potter’ film series, which has had tremendous appeal for children around the globe. The 68—year—old actor will be given the prize at a special ceremony to be held on July 23.

The gala has been held annually in Giffoni Valle Piana since 1971, and highlights films and stars who appeal to children, reported Digital Spy. More than 100,000 people are expected to attend the Giffoni Film Festival from July 18 to July 27. [x]

 Richard Wilson is an absolute gentleman. You speak to anybody on set or any of the cast members and they will have nothing but praise for him. He is a pleasure to work with and an honor.

"I am by nature sort of a loner. I kind of like my own company . I don’t have a big circle of friends. I never liked parties or going to bars. At times that’s proven quite problematic, because I live in my own head." [x]

Q: You often play deeply conflicted characters, such as Dracula. Do you think everyone has a dark side?
Gary: We spend our lives trying to work out who we are so that we can live comfortably with ourselves, but I think we all have public and private personas.
Q: In what way?
G: You play a role as a parent, for example. When my children [Alfie, 26, Gulliver, 16, Charlie, 15] were young they would argue with me and go, ‘But why?’ I’d say, ‘Because you’re five and I’m 45. That’s why.’ You try to be the best that you can be, but parenting is a role. I am not their buddy, I’m their dad, and that is a responsibility – it’s a real part that you play.
Q: Who inspires you?
G: My heroes are Tom Courtenay, Albert Finney, Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers, Laurence Olivier and Malcolm McDowell.
Q: Is acting as enjoyable now as it was early on in your career?
G: No, because I have children now – your priorities change, your responsibilities change. As a young actor, you might say, ‘That old bloke got that job. I could have done that.’ You don’t have the same ambition when you’re older. Now I see talented people getting jobs and just go, ‘Fantastic, good luck to them.’

RIP to Bob Hoskins who was well known for playing Detective Valiant in the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I loved that movie as a kid and I’m sad to see him gone. He died yesterday at age 71 😞 #bobhoskins #RIP #whoframedrogerrabbit #neverforgotten

 “Politics is so full of ego and greed. I’m fed up with it all. I’m reaching the point where I say, ‘this is hopeless’. Is this as good as it gets? All those millionaires sitting around the Cabinet table haven’t experienced what it is like to have no safety net and to know that your parents can’t bail you out. Poverty has a draining effect – it makes people weak and scared. I don’t want to be told how to do things by these guys. They have no right. Is this the best we can manage in the 21st century?”

I try very hard to understand the “Best Detective” category in the National Television Awards. And I’m failing…
