Alan Rickman’s diaries, scripts and letters for sale

OHMYGOSSIP — A collection of Alan Rickman’s personal diaries, scripts and correspondence could fetch £950,000.
The archive – which includes letters from famous names like Prince Charles, ‘Love Actually’ co-star Emma Thompson and Bill Clinton – fills 35 boxes, and is up for sale two years after the legendary actor sadly passed away aged 69.
As reported by the Daily Mirror, ‘Bridget Jones’ actor and memorabilia collector Neil Pearson has worked with the star’s estate to assemble the pieces, which were presented at the ABA Rare Book Fair.
Neil, 59, told the publication: “It’s a fabulous collection. There are 35 boxes of it – there is the ‘Truly, Madly, Deeply’ script in there and ‘Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves’ is in there.
“Every single script of a play or film, all of his diaries and a massive amount of correspondence from pretty much every one you’ve ever heard of.”
As well as scripts ‘Die Hard’ and his time with the Royal Shakespeare Company – which are heavily annotated – there are also some pieces from the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise.
In a letter from J.K. Rowling, the author thanks Rickman for “doing justice to my most complex character”, following his stellar performances as Professor Snape in the big screen adaptations of her books.
The scripts have Snape’s lines highlighted, while there is also a letter from producer David Heyman offering him the role – as well as his final call sheet from the ‘Deathly Hallows’ shoot.
Also noteworthy in the collection are notes from Daniel Radcliffe and Nicole Kidman praising his stage performances, and a series of letters from singer Sting offering him a script.

‘Vampire Diaries’ Alum Steven McQueen and Alexandra Silva Call Off Their Engagement

It’s over. Steven McQueen exclusively revealed to Us Weekly that he has called off his engagement to Alexandra Silva.

The Vampire Diaries alum attended the Voices In Displacement Gala hosted by The Syrian American Medical Society on Friday, May 4, and opened up to Us about canceling his plans to marry the model.

When asked about how the wedding planning was going, the actor, 29, exclusively revealed to Us: “You know what? Actually, we called it off.”

“We did,” he continued. “But yeah, it’s just the way it was. It happened.”

As far as dating goes, he’s focusing on himself, for now, telling Us he’s “enjoying me time,” and staying active. “If I’m stressed I like anything from hiking with my dogs to boxing,” he added. “Whatever comes up.”

In the future, McQueen just wants one thing from the woman in his life: “You know, just love. That’s all.”

The Chicago Fire guest star announced the news that he had proposed to the model via Instagram in January. “She said yes,” the actor captioned a black and white photo of them kissing at dinner.

Silva shared the same photo on her account, writing: “My best friend, love of my life…YES, yes yes a million times over @steven_r_mcqueen.” Both photos have since been deleted from their pages.

McQueen made their relationship Instagram official in December 2016 with a photo of them together from a skiing trip.
