Movie star Alan Rickman’s last job was for charity

This news post is almost 6 years old
 

Much loved movie star's last job was to do a voice over for this tortoise video which automatically raises money for refugees with every watch

British film star Alan Rickman's last piece of work was doing a voice over for this charity video, recorded from his home at the end of November last year.

The much loved movie star's death aged 69 from cancer has sparked a wave of tributes from friends and fans. Famous for playing villans, such as Professor Snape in Harry Potter and Hans Gruber in Die Hard, in real life it seems the star had a heart of gold.

Rickman recorded the voiceover to help encourage people to watch the short video, which generates money for Save the Children and the Refugee Council with every watch. The more views, the more advertising revenue Youtube provides to the charities.

Watch the video now to help his last piece of work raise even more money.

There is no advert beforehand in this link so the advertising revenue won't be generated. I think people have to watch it on YouTube with the full ad first in order to raise the funds. Needs to be clarified.

I like the man very much. His best role, in my opinion, is Valera in a movie about Micheal Collins , co starred by Liam Neeson. Both have don great. I didn't know his name before , but I always liked his roles. Villain or otherwise.

That is awesome, but are the views from this particular page also counted by YouTube? Not trying to be an ass here, just want to make sure my watching, and that of everyone else who followed the same link I have to get here, is doing some good.
