Although starring in arguably the greatest action film ever made - that's Die Hard, people - Alan Rickman's career has been anything but a straight path.

Switching between comedic roles, dramatic roles and smaller indie fare, Rickman has carved out an enviable position for himself.

Alan Rickman was in town for JDIFF '15 to introduce his second directorial effort, A Little Chaos, and sat down with us to talk directing, working with Kate Winslet and just what he thinks of his distinctive voice.

A Little Chaos in Irish cinemas from April 18th.
