Alan Rickman reportedly gave £100,000 to charity in his will. 

The Harry Potter actor and ultimate film villain died in January from cancer aged 69. In his will, Rickman is understood to have donated to charities supporting dramatic arts and facial reconstruction. 

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Sponsored Arts for Education, the Facial Surgery Research Foundation and the International Performers Aid Trust were all left with £25,000 each, according to The Mirror

Rickman attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and began his stage career soon after. He became a patron of Saving Faces in 2000 and was an honorary President of the International Performers Aid Trust. 

The will included all of his assets except those in America and Italy.

The majority of his estate was left to his wife Rima Horton, who he was with for 50 years. Probate records show his net estate to be more than £4 million. 

One of Rickman’s final acts before his death was to help Oxford University students raise money for the refugee crisis by providing a voice-over. 

Saving Faces said it could not comment. The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Sponsored Arts for Education, the Facial Surgery Research Foundation and the International Performers Aid Trust have been contacted for comment.
