    Re: Heath Ledger found dead

    I just googled him, when I saw this thread.

    I can't believe how quickly someone updates on wiki

    Sad story though. When someone that young dies.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I was looking forward to his portrayal of the Joker. Now it will be a bittersweet moment.

    It's always awful to see someone so young with so much life ahead of them pass away. He was talented...it's a sad day.

    I wonder who will replace him as the joker.

    This is sad that someone can do this to their lives if it is drugs that did it.

    Re: Heath Ledger found dead

    I have only heard mixed reports about what if anything has to be done about finishing touches to the movie just another young actor dying to young.


    http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,23095463-2,00.html

    HEATH Ledger has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose in a New York apartment.

    The actor's family has said police have concluded the death was accidental, according to celebrity website TMZ.com.

    Ledger, an Academy Award nominee, was found naked and unconscious in bed at the apartment in the trendy Manhattan area of SoHo by a housekeeper at 3.35pm
    (7.35am AEDT).

    Prescription pills were found strewn near his body.

    New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said: "We are investigating the possibility of an overdose."

    Ledger's death has shocked Hollywood, with stars Mel Gibson, Nicole Kidman, Aidan Young expressing their sorrow at his death. (More)

    The 28-year-old Perth-born actor had a two-year-old daughter, Matilda, with former fiancee Michelle Williams, who played his wife in Brokeback Mountain. They separated in September last year.

    The New York Times reported that a masseuse arrived at the apartment and was let in the door by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Ledger's bedroom.

    When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom door and found Ledger unconscious.

    They attempted to wake him, and when they couldn't they called 911.

    When paramedics responded, the actor was in full cardiac arrest. They attempted to perform CPR on him but were unsuccessful.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Police said they did not suspect foul play.

    Calls by the NY Times to Mara Buxbaum, a publicist for Ledger, and Steve Alexander, the actor’s agent, were not immediately returned.

    Ledger plays the Joker in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight. Watch the trailer below:

    Ledger is best known for his groundbreaking role as Ennis in Brokeback Mountain, for which he was nominated as best lead actor for his role as a gay cowboy.

    The award went to Philip Seymour Hoffman for his role as Truman Capote.

    Ledger played the suicidal son of Billy Bob Thornton in Monster's Ball and had starring roles in A Knight's Tale and The Patriot.

    Ledger grew up in Perth and began doing amateur theater at age 10.

    At 16, he moved to Sydney to pursue an acting career, quickly landing TV movie roles and guest spots on Australian television.

    After several independent films and a starring role in the short-lived Fox TV series Roar, Ledger moved to Los Angeles and co-starred in 10 Things I Hate About You, a teen comedy reworking of The Taming of the Shrew.

    Offers for other teen films came his way, but Ledger turned them down, preferring to remain idle than sign on for projects he did not like.

    "It wasn't a hard decision for me," Ledger told The Associated Press in 2001.

    "It was hard for everyone else around me to understand. Agents were like, 'You're crazy,' my parents were like, 'Come on, you have to eat'."

    His latest role was in I'm Not There, in which he played one of the many incarnations of singer Bob Dylan - as did Cate Blanchett, whose performance in that film earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress.
