Although I only saw Heath Ledger's movie Brokeback Mountain, I was truly saddened to read about this young actor's death on January 22nd of this year. 28 years old is way too young to die!
From what I saw of his acting in the movie Brokeback Mountain, Heath truly had a great talent to become the character he was portraying. I'm only sorry that his recent role of "The Joker" in the upcoming Batman movie drained and exhausted him to the point he could not sleep. However, it is understandable.
Playing the role of a psychopathic, murderous and evil person with no empathy whatsoever had to have been very hard to do when you're a lovingly kind person like Heath! But I'm sure he was able to portray the role as well as he did that of a gay cowboy. Though I have to admit, I can't wait to see the new Batman movie this coming July 18th! I'm sure Heath's last acting job will not disappoint his many fans.
Now my condolences go out to Heath Ledger's entire family...
For Heath was a loving son, brother and father (to Matilda) first and foremost which defined the human being he was more so than his work ever could. A loving and kind human being like Heath Ledger will never be forgotten.
Rest In Peace Heath.
