In the wake of the deaths of two beloved United Kingdom celebrities, fans took to the Internet to dig up any digital memories they could find.

The legendary actor, famous for his roles as Professor Snape in Harry Potter and Hans Gruber in Die Hard, recorded a voiceover for a refugee charity appeal video just weeks before he died from cancer.

Harry Potter creator J K Rowling tweeted that “there are no words to express how shocked and devastated I am to hear of Alan Rickman’s death”.

“My thoughts are with [Rickman’s wife] Rima and the rest of Alan’s family”.

“He could not have been more kind and generous, letting us in, welcoming us, asking us how university was going, he was really great throughout”, Mr Phillips said.

“Love is more powerful than all my magic”, says Severus Snape, popping into the frame.

The subject “Alan Rickman” and hash tag #alanrickman became one of Twitter’s top trending topics as of Jan 14.

Floral tributes to British actor Alan Rickman are seen at the Platform 9 3/4 Harry Potter display at King’s Cross station in London, on January 15, 2016.

Daniel Radcliffe posted a lengthy message on Google+ for Rickman, which he described as “one of the greatest actors” he ever work with. Emma Watson, likewise, stated in her Facebook page how she will miss their conversations.

“It was something special and everyone had a good time”.

Some may wonder why people get so emotional when stars like Bowie and Rickman die, but such things actually happen frequently at the loss of such creative and talented people.

Emma Thompson, who starred alongside Rickman in films including “Sense and Sensibility” and “Love Actually”, praised Rickman’s “humor, intelligence, wisdom and kindness” and called him “the finest of actors and directors”. He also voiced Absolem the Caterpillar in “Alice Through the Looking Glass”, to be shown in theaters in May.
