Emma Thompson, who played Sybill Trelawney in Harry Potter, and also starred opposite Rickman in Love Actually, doesn’t have any social media accounts, but managed to get a message out on Twitter anyway. She coursed her message through New York Times reporter David Itzkoff.

Emma said,

“Alan was my friend and so this is hard to write because i have just ksised him goodbye.

“What I remember most in this moment of painful leave-taking is his humor, intelligence, wisdom, and kindness. His capacity to fell you with a look or lift you with a word. The intransigence which made him the great artist he was – his ineffable and cynical wit, the clarity with which he saw most things, including me, and the fact that he never spared me the view. I learned a lot form him. He was the finest actors and directors. I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to do with his face next. I consider myself hugely privileged to have worked wiht him so many times and to have been directed by him.

“He was the ultimate ally. In life, art, and politics. I trusted him absolutely.

“He was, above all things, a rare and unique human being and we shall not see his like again.”

Sir Michael Gambon, who played Dumbledore in some of the Harry Potter films, told BBC Radio 4: “Everybody loved Alan. He was always happy and fun and creative and very, very funny. He had a great voice, he spoke wonderfully well. He was intelligent, he wrote plays, he directed a play. So he was a real man of the theatre and the stage and that’s how I think of Alan.”
