Today we celebrate the life of one of Hollywood's most beloved and talented actors - Heath Ledger - born April 4th 1979. Most fans will remember Ledger for his Oscar-winning performance as the malevolent and sinister Joker in The Dark Knight, in which he blew our collective minds wide open with his take on Batman's archenemy. He forever changed the face of comic-book villains for better and for always, and it will go down in history as one of the best performances of all time. Not to mention his Oscar-nominated role in Brokeback Mountain. That role marked one of the greatest, astonishing acting transformations of our time. I loved Ledger’s work especially his earlier, lighter work — his goofy romantic lead in the teen-Shakespeare farce 10 Things I Hate About You, his sly, tongue-in-cheek turn as a medieval sports hero in A Knight’s Tale and the skateboard pioneer in Lords of Dogtown. He was truly a remarkable actor with an exuberant amount of promise. Heath Ledger lived a wonderful, yet short life and he will without doubt be missed indefinitely.
*You will always be remembered*
I would have to say my favorite Ledger film is 10 Things I Hate About You - it's such a funny movie - and of course The Dark Knight. The floor is now yours... Let me know which Ledger film is your favorite and why...
