How is my faithful flock? I know I've been gone for some time, and unfortunately I come bearing sad news. Young bright star Heath Ledger (10 Things I Hate About You, Brokeback Mountain) was found dead this afternoon in his Greenwich Village apartment. He was found at 3:30 this afternoon by his masseuse after she was let in by the maid. after many attempts to shake him without response, they called the paramedics. They performed cpr to no avail; he was dead on the scene... There was a bottle of over-the-counter sleeping pills found by his bedside. Heath was only 28 years old.
The troubled actor had concealed a battle with drugs for many years, and never sought treatment, according to close friends. He leaves behind a 2 year old daughter named Matilda that he had with actress Michelle Williams (Dawson's Creek, Brokeback Mountain). Ledger stars in this years new Batman film playing the tortured, schizophrenic and devious character of the JOKER. During the filming, he complained about not being able to sleep, and being tortured by demons that were accentuated by the themes of the film. How tragic! I always thought he was quite handsome, and a great actor. I am deeply saddened by this news.... Below is the last picture taken of Ledger on Saturday night during his performance in London on: "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus."
Sad, tragic, unbearable, cliche, heart-wrenching, the worst. Thank You.
