Heath Ledger Died
I was listening out loud to Enrique Iglesias’ Hero when I heard this shocking news from a fellow blogger. Heath Ledger remains one of my favorite actors in Hollywood history, even before his appearance in Brokeback. His death is truly the saddest news I heard this year.
Ledger’s movies include The Patriot, A Knight’s Tale, Ned Kelly and the sequel of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, which will be shown some time in July. Ledger plays the Joker, whom the actor describes as a “psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy.” Though I feel weird watching Heath as such, I might probably just watch the movie for the purpose of seeing this talented actor’s last appearance in any movie.
Ledger was engaged to his Brokeback co-star Michelle Williams and they have a 2-year-old daughter named Matilda Rose. He was also filming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus at the time of his death. I am truly and deeply saddened by Heath’s untimely demise. He’ll forever be missed.
