Today brings the sad news of the passing of actor Heath Ledger. While details of his death are speculative and not for me to comment on, what I can say is that this is a great loss. Ledger was a very talented actor with some fine roles under his belt, including his Oscar-nominated role in 2005's Brokeback Mountain, and only last year in I'm Not There. Never an actor to go for blockbuster roles, Ledger's choices in roles were always interesting and challenging. We can only speculate as to what great performances he'd have delivered in the future.
A great loss for film fans everywhere.
