Jason Isaacs, a young actor who worked with Rickman, took to Twitter to write, "Heartbreaking news about lovely Alan. Nobody else could be as hilarious, tragic, terrifying and truthful all at the same time #RIPAlanRickman."
The most notable comment came from Sir Michael Gambon, who described Rickman as "always happy and fun and creative and very, very funny. He had a great voice, he spoke wonderfully well.
