Actor Heath Ledger, who stared in: A Knight’s Tale, The Patriot, won critical acclaim for his role in Brokeback Mountain, and stars in The Dark Knight as the Joker, was found dead in his New York apartment earlier today. The family maintains it was not a death by suicide, and the police concur. Until an autopsy is performed, the tentative cause of death is accidental overdose.
He was an excellent actor on his way to being one of our generation’s brightest. He would have been 29 this year.
My thoughts and best wishes go to his family and the daughter he left behind.
You will be missed, Mr. Ledger.
