HEATH LEDGER  (1979-2008)

Hollywood actor Heath Ledger has been found dead at a downtown Manhattan residence, a New York Police Department spokesman has said.

“He was found unconscious at the apartment and pronounced dead,” a police spokeswoman said.

Ledger had finished filming his role as the Joker this year in "The Dark Knight," a sequel to 2005’s "Batman Begins."

A great actor in the prime of his career. I was completely shocked by this news. Heath was a brilliant, talented and respected actor and out of all the performances in the movies this year, his was the one I was most looking forward to seeing.

  1. I don’t believe it!

  2. I was already waiting for the next movie.  So young.  What a pity.  R.I.P.  Peace.

  3. I read from the NY Post that Jack Nicholson had warned Ledger about the role of the joker and how it could affect him.  I suspect that many will believe that that role was what caused his death.
