Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger was found dead today.  This is so damned sad.  He played a prominent roll in one of my unfinished manuscripts.  I feel so sorry for his little girl and all the people who loved him.  28 is so young to say goodbye.

    I’m sad, too. And I also had no idea he was so young. (I thought he was in his 30’s for some reason. Seemed so mature.)

    I think it’s because he started acting so young. I thought he was closer to my age as well.

    This is really so sad. I was never disappointed watching his movies and thought he had a bright future in cinema, but alas he is gone now. I have never really sympathized to 6the death of somebody famous until now. So sad.

    River Phoenix and Brandon Lee both hit me hard. I had such a hard time watching The Crow and several Phoenix movies were favorites that I can’t watch now–like Sneakers and Running on Empty.

    Rinda, the evening that my sister and I saw “Showdown in Little Toyko” was the evening he died. We finished watching the movie – I think we rented it out, turned over to the news, and there was the report. We freaked out. It was so surreal.

    I do hope that they find Heath’s death was accidental and not suicide.

    I am sending mental hugs to you right now. Reading that you actually had a manuscript involving him makes you a serious fan. Not that I am not, but still. Hugs, hugs.

    I found this really sad as well.
