Speaking to BAFTA (via The Guardian), Rickman said when he first read the script for the Bruce Willis film, he thought: "What the hell is this? I'm not doing an action movie."
He added: "I didn't know anything about La. I didn't know anything about the film business… I'd never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap."

During the same BAFTA talk he revealed the young actors in the Harry Potter film series Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were often replaced by "very small adult actors" during filming. »

In the pantheon of great villains, Alan Rickman's delicious Hans Gruber from "Die Hard" ranks right up there. The baddie from the first, and best, movie in the franchise is a big ingredient for why it works so well — every hero needs a formidable foe, and the more colorful, the better — but Rickman recently revealed that he nearly didn't take the part. “I didn’t know anything about La. I didn’t know anything about the film business … I’d never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap,” the theatre-trained Rickman said at BAFTA (via The Guardian) about his earliest foray in Hollywood. And he certainly wasn't taken with script at first, recalling that he thought, “What the hell is this? I’m not doing an action movie.” Read More: Survive Hard: All The Times John McClane Should Have Died In The 'Die Hard' Series »
