10 Great Posthumous Performances


This week sees the release of Eye in the Sky – Gavin Hood’s drone warfare movie, playing now Stateside – in the UK. Already the film has been a hit with critics, with special notice going to one of the actors in particular: the late, great Alan Rickman.

Rickman, who died earlier this year aged 69, gives one of the great posthumous performances in Eye in the Sky. This means he now joins a rare band of actors who gave notable turns in movies that were released after their death.

In honor of him becoming part of this exclusive club of departed performers, join us as we take a look back at 10 other excellent posthumous performances.
