Fans will be given an uncommon look into the life of Alan Rickman, when his diaries are released as a book one year from now.
Released by publishing house Canongate, The Diaries of Alan Rickman will focus a light on his life and career crossing 25 years and feature stories from the sets of some of his biggest stage productions and movies, including the decade he spent creation enchantment as part of the Harry Potter franchise, someone which he depicted misjudged wizard Severus Snape. Rickman died in 2016 from pancreatic cancer.
“I’m delighted that Canongate will be publishing Alan’s diaries, and couldn’t have wished for a finer appointment of editor than Alan Taylor,” Rickman’s widow, Rima Horton, told The Guardian in a statement. “The diaries reveal not just Alan Rickman the actor, but the real Alan – his sense of humor, his sharp observation, his craftsmanship and his devotion to the arts.”
Taylor, who had been with Rickman since 1965, told the source his journals are “anecdotal, indiscreet, witty, gossipy and utterly candid, they make compulsive reading and offer a peerless insight into the daily life of a remarkable actor who was as beloved in the US as he surely was in the UK.”
The publisher teases the Emmy and BAFTA-award winning actor’s diaries were composed as though he “was chatting with a close friend.” Adding, “They are intimate, perceptive and very funny.”
All through Rickman’s lengthy career, he showed up in holiday favorites Die Hard and Love, Actually, Sense and Sensibility, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Bottle Shock, and Galaxy Quest, among others.
The Diaries of Alan Rickman will make a big appearance in the fall of 2021.
