Heath Ledger 1979-2008

1/23/08

A quick word about the Heath Ledger tragedy.

No more than 3 hours before hearing about what happened, my roommate and I were watching the trailer for The Dark Knight in which Ledger plays the Joker, after which we spoke about him as an actor for a good ten minutes.

His death has got to rank up there among the more shocking, because of how recognizable he was but more so because of how young he was.

Sounds like he was a great guy, very down to earth and a loving father before everything else in his life, and hearing about his death was truly heartbreaking, not only because he was a better than average actor with his entire career ahead of him, but also because he was a father and a genuinely good person.

Rest in peace Heath.
