colonel christopher brandon


To me, Alan Rickman will always be the man that brought Colonel Brandon to life.

An actual gentleman, by far my favorite of all Austen’s male characters.

He was loving.

He was so kind, sometimes so much that it hurt him.

Alan Rickman brought Colonel Brandon into the world in a very real way, and he did my favorite author justice.

Watch on

I don’t even LIKE romance/period things…
And this was the first ever Alan Rickman movie I had on DVD…
So I watched it in English, naturally…
And this scene…
The music… and him standing there.. transfixed by her singing…
I immediately had feels for the character… so … many… feels…
And then he opened his mouth…
That was the first time I heard Alan Rickman’s real voice…
“The air… is full of spices…”
… And I swear in that moment…
I slowly slid of the sofa sobbing… because I knew Mariann, the little bitch would be exactly that and the poor Colonel would be put through so much shit ;_;
