* TheDreaded: In an amusing and unintentional way, he was this for Jason Mewes during the filming of Dogma. When Mewes was informed by Kevin Smith that he was going to have to be on point throughout the filming because this movie was going to have experienced and well-respected actors and ''Alan Rickman was one of them," Mewes took the filming so seriously that he not only memorized his lines, but everyone else's lines as well.

'''Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman''' (February 21, 1946 January 14, 2016) was an English actor and director, known for playing a variety of roles on stage and screen, often as a complex antagonist. After doing the standard English Man In Hollywood origin full of Creator/WilliamShakespeare, theatre and single episode spots on the television, he managed to move over to the USA by serving his revenge cold as the Vicomte de Valmont (a very interesting man with some questionable morals) in ''[[Literature/DangerousLiaisons Les Liaisons Dangereuses]]'' on Broadway. He also starred in ''Film/TrulyMadlyDeeply'', a cultured version of ''Film/{{Ghost}}''. Then his first big screen role was the lovable MagnificentBastard Hans Gruber in ''Film/DieHard'', who set up a BatmanGambit in order to steal 600 million dollars in negotiable bearer bonds. He had to kill a few people to get the money, which was certainly not very nice, but he did so with memorable {{Bond One Liner}}s, and personally ad-libbed the infamous, "Mr. Takagi did not see it that way... so he won't be joining us for the rest of his life." To this day, Hans is still regarded as one of the greatest villains in movie history.

* SecretKeeper: Creator/JKRowling told Alan Rickman Severus Snape's entire backstory - particularly, the content discussed in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' - as she felt it was crucial to his portrayal of the character in the films. He kept the fact that he had this knowledge secret from everyone until she revealed this herself, and even then, never revealed exactly what she'd said. Respecting his wishes, Rowling didn't tell anyone either until after his death.

He also played a bad guy in ''Film/QuigleyDownUnder'', as well as Judge Turpin in the 2007 Creator/TimBurton film version of ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet''. Regardless of these roles, there were plenty of clearly not villainous, still very interesting roles that he had performed.
