Manslice Monday: Hot Dead Actors: Heath Ledger

 Heath Ledger was tripping the light fantastic when he died an untimely , scary death 9 years ago now, way back in 2008. After wrapping up The Dark Knight movie starring as  The Joker, Ledger who was having trouble sleeping took too many pills and overdosed, thus having a heart attack at the all too young age of 28.
SAD really considering Heath Ledger was a rising star, whose flame burnt out much too early.
Ledger was born in 1979 in Perth Australia. He began his acting career in Australian TV shows, soon clamoring for Hollywood, thus starring in a total of 19 films. His first flick, 10 Things I Hate About You , in 1999, gained him the attention he needed to score more flicks, with the upcoming role in The Patriot, Brokeback Mountain and soon enough gaining an Academy Award posthumorously for his incredible portrayal of The Joker in The Dark Knight.
Heath had a child with actress Michelle Williams in 2005, naming her Matilda Rose.
Ledger reportedly was named Heathcliff after the brooding figure in the Emily Brontë book Wuthering Heights. Momzinga.com.
