It was an honor to work with Alan Rickman! However briefly, I met and worked with him on the film Galaxy Quest! He was a very kind man, and an amazing actor. I was amazed to find that I was in the tribute to him that is running on CNN today. He could do it all: comedy, drama, good guys and ESPECIALLY bad guys. His work will be remembered for a long time to come. Click HERE to see the video!
