British actor Alan Rickman, a classically trained stage star and sensual screen villain in several critically lauded films, as well as the "Harry Potter" saga, has died.Film roles included Hans Gruber – the psychopathic villain who tormented Bruce Willis in "Die Hard" in 1988 – and a deceased lover who consoles his bereaved partner in 1990's "Truly Madly Deeply".The actor's screen roles were remarkably varied, and included the upright Col. Brandon in Ang Lee's 1995 film version of "Sense and Sensibility" and Irish politician Eamon de Valera in 1996 historical drama "Michael Collins".Rickman was also a filmmaker, directing and co-starring opposite Kate Winslet in 2014 costume drama "A Little Chaos".Frequently charming in person, Rickman was, by his own account, uncompromising as an actor. Rickman is survived by his partner of 50 years, Rima Horton, whom he married in 2012 .
