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.
