Impressions of Rickman


Delete of course! But that would be too easy so they turn in to Impressions(That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
Slideshow HERE

At the end of the show we returned to the bar area and were going to leave but hikity advised us that Alan would be coming out soon. She's chatted up the usher who she'd met the night before who gave her the info! As I had my new camera and the inter-continental hopes of several people I thought I'd hang round to try and get some pix.

The usher announced that people could get autographs one at a time by queuing up at an open door (guarded by said usher). Now this smacked of Santa's Grotto to me and there was no way I was queuing up so I positioned myself to the side of the queue and leaned in and snapped away! Hence the poor quality.

At the beginning of the show an elderly lady walked down the steps passed us and the usher asked if she was OK. She said she was going to walk right round as her seat was the other end of the row and she didn't want to disturb everybody. As she walked away the usher sort of informed the people nearest "That's Mr's Minghella", Anthony's mother.

I've got to say that I've seen Rickman a few times now but I really do prefer to see him perform it's so much better than just going to a Q&A, premiere etc. It's what he does best. With this the voice was all, no acting with the body just a few facial inflections and everything else relying on the voice.

For those who need to know, yes he still looks good, dark suit, grey hair and more than a bit of a tum;)
