Harry Potter actor Sean Biggerstaff wrote Alan Rickman a tribute letter that will have you in tears.
The 32-year-old actor, who played Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter movies, penned a very touching tribute to Alan, who passed away on Thursday (January 14).
“I don’t know what I did to deserve a friend like Alan. He looked out for me for twenty years and I loved him. I don’t know what to do now,” he shared on Twitter, before posting a longer tribute.
“In 1994 I, an 11-year-old idiot, walked into a rehearsal room in the Old Athenaeum in Glasgow and was welcomed by the fucking Sheriff of Nottingham in a voice which made the room tremble. We sat down and my audition started, reading straight off the page dialogue so unavoidably brilliant that all you needed to do was read it straight off the page.
I did not get the part.
I was too young.
I did, however, receive a long, hand-written letter from Joyce Nettles, the casting director, thanking me for auditioning and expressing regret that it hadn’t worked out. The only time this has ever happened. I think Alan may have had something to do with that.”
