Alan Rickman, the English actor who made bad guys so easy to love, has passed away at the age of 69. A statement from the family said he “died from cancer” while “surrounded by family and friends.”

A private individual, Rickman appears to have kept his battle with cancer a secret, at least from the press. Let’s celebrate his life by watching two clips from Die Hard and Love Actually—scenes so memorable, some of us may have found ourselves revisiting them even without today’s tragic news.
