I read this story from a young lady who volunteered at this charity gala last September which Alan Rickman was introducing. She went in place of her friend who couldn't go because she was undergoing chemotherapy. She went to meet him along with another volunteering friend at the interval and said she found him to be intimidating at first but actually very lovely and sweet signing everything including her unwell friend's Harry Potter book and also chatted about how they came to volunteer at the event amongst other things. A few months later, they flew to New York to see Alan Rickman's new Broadway show and at the stage door, when he saw them, he said that he remembered them from the charity event and asked about their friend. Needless to say, they were utterly surprised by his thoughtfulness and it just made their trip.
