RIP Jareth the Goblin King and Severus Snape

In the space of a week, we've lost two great British legends to cancer.

David Bowie is known more for his music than his acting, but he'll always be Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth to me. (Another film of his I'd highly recommend is The Prestige, which I forced my 14-year-old nephew to watch last month. "Batman & Alfred are in it. Why yes that *is* Wolverine. Gollum too. Oh & Black Widow.")

I've dug out my movie lobby sets for Labyrinth in tribute:
RIP David Bowie a.k.a. Jareth the Goblin King

The second British legend is he of the velvety dulcet tones, Alan Rickman. There are too many memorable films he's appeared in, so I'll list a few faves: Truly, Madly, Deeply; Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves; Sense and Sensibility: and, of course, the Harry Potter series.
RIP Alan Rickman a.k.a. Severus Snape
