If Alan Rickman and Ciarán Hinds had a love child …

Humour me on this for a sec.

Alan Rickman
If Alan Rickman


and Ciarán Hinds

had a love child, this is what he’d look like:

Am I right or am I right? 😉

And he’s an actor too! It’s a Welsh guy called Ronan Vibert, whom I just spotted in Tristan + Isolde. He does look tremendously like a mixture of those two handsome fellows. 🙂


An easily distracted and over-excited introvert who never learns to go to bed at a reasonable time. Enjoys traveling (when there's not a plague on), and taking photos of European architecture. Cares for cats, good coffee and Boardwalk Empire. A child of her time, she did media studies in school and still can't decide what she wants to be when she grows up.

  1. HAHAHA!!!
    That made me burst out laughing! So very true. I saw Ronan Vibert in “The Buccaneers” and kept thinking, “He looks so familiar…” but now, thanks to you, I know why. He is the love child of Snape and Edward Rochester. 🙂

  2. Hahaha! I can definitely see the resemblance, Rickman around the upper part of the face and Hind for the hair, lips and shape of the face.
    …But just so you know. I can’t actually see your Rickman picture. It’s not visible on my browser for some reason.

  3. @phylly3: Hmm, strange. Not even if you click on it? :/ It’s just a random picture I found on Google (younger Alan, cradling a statue’s head to his bare chest). 🙂

    @Nat: OMG, love child of Rochester and Snape… *swoon* …Hang on, no, that character looks like RA in my head! 😉

    I was watching the film and just thought “gosh, he looks a lot like Alan Rickman… but it’s not him… and come to think of it, he also looks a bit like Ciarán Hinds!” So I just had to look him up! 😀

  4. Ronan Vibert also played Sforza on the Borgia’s – Shotime and now he’s on Penny Dreadful- also Shotime
