Throwback Thursday

Rickman was a big screen de Valera

The day that saw the 2016 Oscar nominations being released also came with the sad news of the death of actor Alan Rickman. The London-born Rickman, who was partly Irish by ancestry, was best known for his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter movies, but this photo shows him in his role as Éamon de Valera in the 1996 movie “Michael Collins.”
