Heath Ledger

Man, what a bad couple of weeks for talented Antipodeans. First Sir Ed, then Hone Tuwhare, now Heath Ledger.

Lauren and I both really, really liked Ledger, who was one of the best young actors on the planet. Brilliant in Brokeback Mountain and Candy, I was really looking forward to seeing his taken on The Joker in The Dark Night.

Looks at the moment like suicide by drug overdose. If so, that's yet another talented artist to kill themselves. Very sad.

Dunno. The whole thing makes me glad I'm not famous.
