Remembering David Bowie & Alan Rickman

Remembering David Bowie & Alan Rickman

The entertainment world lost two greats this week. Legendary musician and actor David Bowie was a master of re-invention who scored hit after musical hit in the 1970s and with his alter-egos Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke. Bowie turned to acting, and by the 1980s was gaining acclaim as a serious actor on film and on Broadway. In addition to the CDs and films in the library's collection, many of Bowie's albums are also available through the hoopla digital media service.

Actor Alan Rickman, best known for his role as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films, was a classically trained actor who studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He possessed a rich voice that was perfect for many of the villains he portrayed, most famously in 1988’s Die Hard. Rickman also starred on the stage and small screen and won an Emmy in 1996. Visit the library to check out some of Rickman's best work on film.
