I just found out that Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon. It caught me completely off guard. I’m just completely shocked; he was only 28 years old, three years younger than me. My friend Cheryl and I were really looking forward to seeing him play the Joker in the new Batman movie coming out this summer. I think he was really, really just coming into his acting career, and I had commented a few months ago that I thought he was very promising and I couldn’t wait to see what he did in the future. What a sad, senseless end to a life.
