since the news broke on Twitter:
Heath Ledger is dead
I thought it a sick
joke at first, but then it was
confirmed. And I cried.
I remember him
as a young new actor on
the FOX series Roar
I was a fan of
his career. He was even
on my List of Five.
Here’s hoping Heath wins
the Oscar for the Dark Knight.
He’ll be greatly missed.
How ironic that exactly one year after his accidental death, Heath Ledger was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his brilliant portrayal of the Joker. Watching that movie, I’ll admit there were several moments where I completely forgot it was him because he disappeared entirely into the role.
I wish we could have seen more of his work. And I really miss that smile.
(One of his cheesiest roles, and yet one of my favorites.)
