I was greeted with the news this morning just as I walked into work that Heath Ledger had been found dead. This isn’t the type of news to expect as you get to work in the morning but death is shocking. Death is even more shocking when it happens to someone young, with a child.
The News.com.au website said:
HEATH Ledger has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose in a New York apartment reportedly belonging to fellow actor Mary-Kate Olsen.
Ledger, an Academy Award nominee, was found naked and unconscious in bed at the apartment in the trendy Manhattan area of SoHo by a housekeeper at 3.35pm (7.35am AEDT).
I’ve enjoyed watching movies that Heath Ledger was in, and now he will stay forever young like James Dean.
My condolences go to his family and to his poor daughter, Matilda.
