Alan Rickman’s Biography

Rickman at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, in New York (June 2011).

He was the second child of a working-class family composed of an Irish father and a Welsh mother. He had an older brother (David) and two younger brothers (Michael and Sheila).

He studied thanks to a scholarship at the Latymer School, where he began to intervene in school productions. Influenced by his late father, a painter and decorator who died of cancer when Alan was only 8 years old, he decided to become a graphic designer studying at the Chelsea College of Art. At the same time he made his first steps as an interpreter at the theatrical amateur company The Brook Green Players, where his future girlfriend Rima Horton also performed.

After trying his fortune with a design company with several friends, at age 26 he decides to apply for a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art or RADA (London), which was his vice president from 2003 until his death. It was accepted after interpreting a passage by Richard III, by William Shakespeare.

In 1975, after spending three years at RADA, he began his career as a professional actor. The first two years, by law, the newly graduated actors could only do repertoire theater.

In February 1978 he made his first television role as Theobald in the play Romeo y Julieta in a miniseries format for the BBC network. In 1982 he starred in his first television movie, Busted.

Other notable works for television include: The Preacher, within the series Revolutionary Witness (1989), which commemorated the two hundred years since the beginning of the French Revolution; Rasputin (1996), film for HBO about the life of Grigori Rasputín and for which he received, among other awards, an Emmy and a Golden Globe; Something the Lord Made (2004), also for HBO; and A Song for Lunch (2010). The film Truly, Madly, Deeply (1990), sometimes translated as A Ghost in Love, was recorded for broadcast on television, but after the great success in the United Kingdom, it was adapted to the film format in 1991.

At the theater he gained fame in Les liaisons dangereuses (The Dangerous Liaisons, 1985-1987), an epistolary novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, adapted by Christopher Hampton and directed by Howard Davies. Rickman played the Viscount of Valmont and Lindsay Duncan to the Marquesa de Merteuil. His huge success in the West End and Broadway caught the attention of Hollywood producers, who immediately wanted to take over the rights of the work to make a film in which they did not have any of the actors in the play. / p>
