Whilst the world mourns the tragic loss of British actor Alan Rickman, we take a look at one of his most popular characters and why he was so great.

Alan Rickman, the much-loved star of stage, TV and film has died aged 69, after losing a secret battle with cancer. 

Alan had one of the most recognisable voices in film and played some of the most memorable characters, such as Hans Gruber in Die Hard, Harry in Richard Curtis' Love Actually and the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

But it was his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter series that earned him a massive young fanbase.
