He was a decent human being, from all I know, and was one of the few Harry Potter actors who fit their roles perfectly.

Why do they die so young? Alan Rickman wasn't that old either, and from what I know, neither lived the kind of life that might be blamed for famous actors dying young (alcohol and other drugs and excessive partying and all that).

Oh Robbie had a big drink problem on and off. Iron constitution when young, could put it away by the gallon. And relatedly very overweight. It's not a surprise that he'd not make the oldest of bones since his heart was probably working overtime much of his life. But it's so sad.

helen mccrory was only in her early 50s. died of breast cancer last year :(
