Welcome to the

Alan Rickman Download Haven

Guest Book

The purpose of the Alan Rickman Download Haven Guest Book is for group discussion of Alan Rickman’s projects (old and new), news, information, and pictures.  Also welcome are questions, sightings, and reviews.

Our community is made up of many long-time members, and is continually joined by new AR fans.   As a new poster, you may want to browse our archives or lurk for a short while so you get a feel for our community.  We don’t have a lot of rules, but we do expect everyone to respect each other and to respect Alan Rickman.

When posting information or pictures you've found from other sources, please try to include credit for the hard working source that provided it.   Sometimes it may be impossible to remember where you found something and that is OK too because 9 times out of 10 another member will remember and post the information a little later.  

AR fandom sometimes suffers from what our group has fondly come to call “AR Drought”.  Its these times, we find solace by digging deep into our AR archives and posting an old piccie  (or two) and/or an old interview.  These always seem to generate good fun discussion and often brings back some wonderful memories for some of our members.

When you want to post thoughts about one of AR’s films, you might want to consider using a flag such as *SPOILER* before you write your thoughts just in case someone hasn’t seen the film and doesn’t want to know about it ahead of time.   The Harry Potter phenomenon is so huge, it has its very own place.  Please find the link to our HP Spoilers Forum below.  You’ll find lots of good discussion about plots and theories in the realm of Harry Potter. 

In addition, what’s a good friendship without some place to get as silly and squeely as humanly possible ?    Goodness knows AR gives us a lot to Squeeee about!  Our Alan Rickman Download Haven Discussion Party fits the bill for that particular part of our personality.  It’s a rip roaring party and there’s a lot of laughs and good times to be had by all.  We talk about anything and everything over there and would love to see your participation.   
Finally, our Alan Rickman Download Haven Live Chat Room is a place to shoot the breeze with other AR fans in realtime.  Pop in any time and you never know who you will run into or what the topic of discussion might be.  It’s a great way for our members to get to know each other a little better, and to continue conversations not specific to the main ‘on topic’ board in as much detail as they’d like.  Lots of  AR-admiration goes on and laughs are had in the chat room!

There is a fantastic group of Alan Rickman fans from all over the world represented here and each person adds to the fun in their very own way.

Lurking is welcome but we would love for you to post your comments when you feel comfortable.

The most important thing to keep in mind is......HAVE FUN!

If you have any problems posting,
please don't hesitate to email one of us
Claudia, GA   Sabine, GA  Sue, UK OR Ali-Pat, OH

Watched the Talking Pictures programme which was enjoyable but contained nothing that we haven't already seen. The narrator, veteran actress Sylvia Sims sounded genuinely upset at the end of the programme.

Thank you so much, Ali Pat!
Well, I already had some places on my list... Now that I've read your post I need to stay in London a bit longer I guess.... [wink5]

Actor's Church is a great idea, same as National Portrait Gallery. Thank you!
Bush Theatre seems to be closed until April and there are no tours at RADA atm....
I thought about the HarryPotterTour at Warner B., but then again I wonder if I better head to the "real" places as my time in London is quite short. Friday to Tuesday.

Thank you again, now I can make closer plans for my trip....

Goodness, Britta, there are so many places!  Schools he attended:  Latymer Upper School, RADA.  The Albert Memorial, site of a famous photo shoot.  Places where movies were filmed:  Canary Wharf (Close My Eyes and Gissing), Selfridge's (Love, Actually), the walk along the Thames near the National Theatre (Truly Madly Deeply), Rathbone St. (Song of Lunch).  Any Harry Potter tour would be good.  There used to be a portrait of Alan in the National Portrait Gallery--hope it is still there.  Dozens of theaters where he performed, especially the Bush Theatre where there are two seats dedicated to him.  The Paddington area where he used to live and was often spotted in shops and restaurants.  The list goes on and on.

Hi there, Sue. Thanks so much I did not donate myself as back when I thought Alan would appreciate a donation to a charity more. Still, I would like to see the bench when I am in London. Maybe next time...

In reply to myself I just had a look at the original Facebook page. I am not on Facebook but could see the first page and there was a post dated 5th December with a copy of an email from the Royal Parks people apologising for delay saying that these things take time.
So don't get too worried yet Britta and Puddingdale.

Puddingdale, were these donations made through a JustGiving page? You should be able to check if they were?

Very odd - especially as so many donated, one would expect that the organisers proudly presented the result. Seems something went wrong there... I'll keep my eyes peeled for news.

Rest in Peace, Magda, and wait for us!
A big hug to you, Sue!

Sad news about a poster that some of our old timers may remember. Magda of Aberdeen has died. We had so much fun and saw Alan's final performance in Private Lives together and also saw him at Manchester narrating The Ground Beneath My Feet. RIP Magda.

Hello, Nat.  I am not sure which interview this is, but a lot of Alan's interviews are available on YouTube if you cannot find them elsewhere.

Anybody else have an idea which interview this is?  [ga_fun_searching]

Hello! A long time ago I listened to a radio interview that he gave, where he talked about Hollywood's obsession with youth. There was one part where he talked about how young actresses are sort of cycled out as soon as they get even a tiny little wrinkle - something to that effect, but most importantly - he said during that part of the interview that he isn't interested in what people look like on the outside - what concerns/intrigues him is who people are on the inside.

Well, I simply loved the way he put it into words, but I was very stupid and didn't save/download the interview! After he passed, I went around to his fan sites, but I couldn't find it. Then I remembered "Brits and Clips", and I have a feeling that this is the place where I first heard the interview (I remember clicking on it and it opened in a new browser tab).

So far I have found one zip file here under the "Audio" tab. It's from 1992 Toronto. I plan to listen to it later tonight, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to also post this message in case anyone remembers the interview and knows exactly where I can find it. I want to make my own video tribute, and I really want to include that part of that interview.

Well, either way, thank you for keeping this website going! There is so much here that you can't find anywhere else, so thank you for the work it took to find and preserve all of these memories for us!

Thank you so much for trying to help I find it odd too that they never talked about the final result of their initiative or at least posted pictures. Hm.
I might indeed contact Kensington Gardens at some point - or I'll just wander around there...

Comments:

"Any production of Christopher Hampton's 1985 play, adapted with epigrammatic wit and elegant symmetry from the scandalous 1782 epistolary novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, has to contend with the long shadow of its celebrated predecessors. Or more specifically, with memories of the actors paired in its central roles. It's not the swordfight in which the broken Valmont goes up against one of the many dupes he has humiliated that matters so much as his fatal duel with the Marquise, in which the mutual longing and jealousy of these one-time lovers become the ultimate weapons.

"Watching Lindsay Duncan and Alan Rickman draw blood in those roles in the original Royal Shakespeare Company staging, which traveled from London to Broadway, remains an unforgettable thrill three decades later. [T]he material served as a sizzling joust between ideal partners, playing at the very top of their game." -- From a Hollywood Reporter review of the current Donmar Warehouse production of LLD at the Booth Theatre in Manhattan 

The NYTimes critic Ben Brantley:  

"When this play was first seen on Broadway in 1987, in a Royal Shakespeare Company production staged by Howard Davies (a director of novelistic finesse who died last week), Lindsay Duncan and Alan Rickman slithered into its leading roles with the avidity of sleek, sexy foxes in a henhouse. In the same parts, Ms. McTeer and Mr. Schreiber come across as magnificent bulls who have strayed into a Limoges china shop."

Although I never saw AR and Lindsay Duncan in LLD, their Elyot and Amanda in Private Lives were truly sensational.
