The New Yorker posted a cartoon in tribute to the legacy of the late Alan Rickman, who passed away on Thursday from pancreatic cancer at the age of 69.
Rickman, famous for portraying the main antagonist in a number of films, starred in the Harry Potter movies, as well as in Die Hard series. In both roles he portrayed a complicated but intriguingly-likable villain.
In the cartoon drawn by Dr. Benjamin Schwartz, Harry Potter and John McClane, have a drink together. The two protagonists of Rickman’s most famous films share a moment together as they recall upon their fellow antagonist.
Schwartz, also a lecturer at Columbia University, has posted many other cartoons. Just earlier this week, Schwartz similarly did a cartoon in honor of musician David Bowie, who also died of cancer at the age of 69.
