Tim Allen Reveals How Alan Rickman Behaved On The Set Of Galaxy Quest
When Alan Rickman passed away on January 14, 2016, several of his co-stars praised the iconic performer's kindness and gentle, mentor-like nature behind his commanding presence.
Tim Allen, who starred with him in the 1999 sci-fi comedy “Galaxy Quest,” applauded Rickman’s work ethic and acting talent but also revealed that they didn’t get along right away.
Rickman was somewhat suspicious of Allen because he initially mistook Allen’s approach to acting for a lack of commitment to the work.
However, when Rickman realized Allen’s wisecracks were his way of approaching the work, he came around and even used one of his jokes as a means to make amends.
“I used to joke he had studied with Uta Hagen," Allen said. "I'm just bulls****** like I know any of this. I said well that's where I went. I went to the Uta Haagen-Dazs School.”
Allen said that when they became friends, Rickman brought him chocolate Haagen-Dazs as a peace offering and said, “This is for you because whoever taught you taught you very well.”
