Who said that a Rickmanaic was average anyway? Just for fun, I don't think there is such a thing as average as fans are concerned. Alan pleases many people of many countries and genders and ages; so how old matters not a all.
Well originally I would have assumed older. But due to the popularity of a little movie series called Harry Potter, Rickman's fanbase has definitely grown to include a much broader age range. Which I think is great because the man's acting should be respected by all.
well i'm 13, and my mother says it's awful for me to be a fan of a guy that is 64 (life is brutal though Alan stays perfect). on the other hand, the only person in my family that actually heard his name in life is my grandpa (80) and that is mainly because of Robin Hood and Die Hard. he also thinks it's very pitiful that Alan never starred in the "Bonanza" series.
am i surrounded by weirdos?
Well, I'm 16, and I fell in love with him when I saw the the fifth HP movie. God, I can pinpoint the exact moment. It was during the scene when Snape is teaching Harry Occlumency.
Is it weird that I know exactly what seat in exactly what theatre I was sitting in, too?
Don't answer that :)
Well I have been in love with Alan since I was 12, and I seriously love him. I know way more about him than anybody should, and I'm one of those fans who when you hang around me, you'll hear the name alan Rickman used more ion an hour than the average person in a lifetime
I'm 16 and I have loved him since I was 12. And I can't stop loving him!!!! I bet there are people who are kids love him and all the way up to 60(maybe older)! Who in the whole wide world does not like(or love) him!??
I'm 23 an have been a HUGE fan of his, as well as head over heels in love with him since I was almost 8! Also my mom is 48 and LOVES him, as well as my grandmother (65), my friend 17, other friend 38, other friend 29. So I really think his fan base defies statistics! lol Besides how can anyone resist that gorgous man! ;)
I'm 14 and i started to bea fan of alan rickman when i was 11( i am ashamed that i wasn't a fan even younger than 11) but still i don't think there is an average for been an Rickmanaic you can be an 6 years old kid or an 89 old person just that you know that is truly a wonderful man,actor,the sexiest guy(even if he is a little bit old) and his voice is the greatest thing you ever heard is the only thing that matter;):)
Well, I'm 38, fixing to be 39. I've liked Alan Rickman since I've seen him in Diehard and Robin Hood.
Then I've admired, honored, respected, and been fascinaed by Severus Snape since reading the first book.
Imagine my total fixation when they merged the two into a phenominal character creation for the Harry Potter movies.
Then to see him as Col Branden and Sense and Sensibility and to watch and hear him in Snowcake and in Close My Eyes. I've been slowly working my way through his body of work in the movies. Only regretting that I'll never be able to see any of his work on stage.
