Summary

Heath Ledger was one of Hollywood's exciting young stars. The Australian-born actor went to California to make a career for himself, ironically finding his first part in a film shooting on location in Australia. He then found box-office success with appearances in Ten Things I Hate About You, The Patriot, and A Knight's Tale. But critical success didn't follow until he played a closeted gay ranch hand in Brokeback Mountain opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, for which he earned an Academy Award nomination. Soon after, Ledger and Michelle Williams, who had played his on-screen wife in the movie, became parents to daughter, Matilda. Another chance to show his acting skill came when he was cast against type to play the Joker in the second movie of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Sadly, Ledger died of an accidental drug overdose before The Dark Knight was released in theaters, but his riveting performance as the criminally insane villain posthumously won the actor an Oscar. Read in Health Ledger about this star's meteoric rise to fame and his untimely end.
