Diehard Potterheads, prepare to have your day completely ruined. 

Alan Rickman, the beloved English actor who brought Professor Severus Snape to life in the Harry Potter film franchise, passed away today at the age of 69 after losing his battle with cancer.

While it is extremely, extremely sad news, Rickman leaves behind a longstanding legacy as one of the industry's best actors, having starred in other hit films like Die Hard and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

As expected, Twitter timeleines everywhere were completely filled with touching tributes to the late actor, and some of them even came from his colleagues like Harry Potter author JK Rowling and his Love Actually co-star Emma Thompson.

Today is a sad day, indeed.
