Alan Rickman Net Worth is $16 Million (as of 2019)
As for the day, Alan Rickman net worth is estimated at $16 million. And although this is a tremendous amount of money, in my opinion his talent is worth much more. For the younger audience Alan may always be a professor Severus Snape, a fictional character from the J. K. Rowling’s book series Harry Potter. But if you take a closer look at Snape as he was portrayed by the author, you will notice that he is a person of considerable complexity, whose coldly sarcastic and controlled exterior conceals deep emotions and anguish. And it took an exceptional acting talent to reflect all this complexity for the audience. This is one of the reasons why I have started this article with a statement that Alan Rickman met worth, as impressive as it is, is still too small for somebody like him. But during his lengthy career Alan has actually done way more unforgettable roles.
|Net Worth:||$16 Million|

|Occupation:||Actor, Graphic Designer, Film director, Film Producer, Screenwriter, Voice Actor|
First of all, Rickman has done some great work in theatre, as part as the Royal Shakespeare Company and other troupes. For example, he has created one of the greatest and most memorable villain characters of the 1980s – the amoral, manipulative seducer Valmont in in Christopher Hampton’s stage play, Les Liaisons Dangereuses. This role has garnered him a Tony Award, but I could not say that it did much to increase Alan Rickman net worth. Don‘t get me wrong – he was paid quote good money, but theatre actors, no matter how great they are, generally earn much less than some of their less talented colleagues in Hollywood. As about movies, Alan‘s greatest performances were in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Die Hard, Truly, Madly, Deeply, Love Actually and Rasputin: Dark Servant of Destiny.
I guess by now it is pretty obvious that I am a bit biased: there are very few actors that I admire as much as Alan Rickman. And this is not only because of his acting talent. What I really respect is also his philosophical attitude towards acting, towards plays and movies, his dedication for this form of art: „Actors are agents of change. A film, a piece of theatre, a piece of music, or a book can make a difference. It can change the world“. Rickman is also quoted saying: „And it’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.“ Don‘t you think that this idea is just a perfect summary of what books, movies and plays are actually all about? Now do you agree that Alan Rickman net worth is a mare indicator of his amazing talent and dedication?
