    R.I.P. Heath.

    I'm really shaken by this.

    Apparently he did have pneumonia yesterday, and his family is denying suicide. It'll be interesting to see what comes of it all.

    But he'd just made the Bob Dylan movie and played The Joker in Dark Knight, things were going to be awesome for him. Such a shame.

    Is it known whether the drugs were p harma ceutical or illegal?

    It doesn't take much to O.D on say heroin if he was a first time user or it wasn't in his system for a while.

    Yeah the current money is on accidental OD of sleeping pills/medication for pneumonia. Whether or not that was mixed with more elicit substances is anyones guess at the moment

    It's too early to say. But this is a total tragedy. His career was just about to go ballistic. I feel so bad for his little girl. :cry:

    Someone on the radio claimed it was because he was having trouble "disconnecting" from the Joker after they stopped filming. Not too uncommon with method style actors

    He's never impressed me with his acting, so this hasn't affected me at all - but RIP all the same.

    As I've been posting everywhere on the net, I predict the new Batman will break the box office record of biggest opening weekend now - to see the performance that 'drove' Ledger to his death.

    I really likes a Knights Tale and 10 things. Can't say I've seen anything else he did. RIP- really sucks when people die young.

    Pfft. DOes that mean he spent a month pretending to be Bob Dylan after I'm Not There? Walked around wearing Ned Kelly armour or couldn't shake off being a gay cowboy? That's just dumb.

    Heath Ledger was a sensational actor, and just a generally decent bloke. It's just a pity that the end of his legacy will portray him as being a raving lunatic with psychotic delusions. Dark Knight will become one of the biggest grossing films of all time as a result of this. Thankfully the praise and respect of the audiences will be well-earned given early rumblings of Ledger's phenomenal acting in the film.

    RIP. It's good to come here and find that people respect the death of someone, rather than ridicule them about the way they died like I had to put up with at work.

    Excuse the pun but that sounds like a joke.

    Any good actor disconnects the moment their role is wrapped in order to prepare for their next role.

    If someone transforms their own personality into the character they are playing then they aren't acting they are just playing themselves (typecast).

    I don't want to speak ill of the dead but from what I have seen - Two Hands, I think he did a good job but his looks carry him more than his acting and pretty faces with any acting skill can do very well in Hollywood.

    A Knights Tale was just too appalling for me to watch, before the first commercial break I switched channels, possibly as soon as the first song started.

    In general the more you act the better you become and from what I have seen of his bits in the Batman the Dark Knight it could turn him into another Brandon Lee. But I have to say both had such good make up jobs it just sells the characters they play very well.
