Seven degrees of Sherlock Holmes - Alan Rickman - one of the big screens best villains.

An incredible actor remembered mostly for all the great bad guys he played. He was however a classically trained actor and had a fantastic presence in the Harry Potter movies.

Alan Rickman 1946-2016

Starred in a movie from 2006 called 'Perfume'

which also featured Rachel Hurd-Wood (1990)

who was in 2004's 'Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking'

There you have it, there you are.

And Thanks to IHOSE, Rickman also played Holmes on stage at one point in his career.


  1. Scuttlebutt from the Spermaceti Press, March 2001, reported Catherine Zeta-Jones "is considering" making a film loosely based on "The Sign of Four" that also focuses on a secret love affair between Holmes and married member of the aristocracy. Alan Rickman "is tipped" as Holmes, and Gabriel Byrne as Watson. The script is currently "being developed," with a view to start filming next spring. (Too bad it was never made!)
