It's really, really sad and tragic because he was one of the best sensitive, compassionate actors in Hollywood. He would have blazed our movie screens had he lived and become one of the masters.

Ellen Page of "Juno" fame was set to act with Heath Ledger in his directorial debut! Imagine wha could have been.

quote:
The combination of Ellen Page and Heath Ledger on screen would have been pure magic. She is already becoming a great actress. He was already a gifted actor, wanting to reach new depths, and I think he would have been thoughtful and brave as a director. Its too bad well never know.

What could have been ....

Given his immense sensitivity and artistic gifts, Heath would also have made a very good director at the very least.

He was alright in "A Knight's Tale." It will be interesting to see him as The Joker.

Yeah he's getting good reviews already just from the movie teasers as 'The Joker' in "The Dark Knight".

He was perfect in "Brokeback Mountain" just perfect.

He was one of the few actors who could get me out to the theatre.

Saw the Bob Dylan flick - I'm not here - Heath was probably my favorite part of that movie.

Very sad, I hate the way the tabs are looking for dirt on the guy, can't accept that he died of natural causes.

Even though he had a short life, his work was superb and he will be remembered.

Well the coroners report isn't out yet but he may have has pneumonia. I believe that he did die of pneumonia complications.

quote:
The day after Ledger's death, Plummer told The Globe and Mail that he thought the actor, who had been shooting exterior scenes in damp, wintry London, may have had pneumonia or walking pneumonia.

"Of course, if you take sleeping pills with that, you can stop your heart," he said.
