In this piece at the New Statesman, Shepherd's Bush MP Andy Slaughter remembers Alan Rickman, the Acton-born actor who became an internationally famous movie star.

In particular, Slaughter remembers the actor as "As a West London boy, Labour Party loyalist and supporter of the arts in his local community".

Both men were educated at Latymer Upper School in Hammersmith, then a grammar school. Alan Rickman was a staunch supporter of our very own Bush Theatre, promoting high quality writing and drama in our neighbourhood. To read the full story, follow this link.
