Description
Heathcliff Andrew "Heath" Ledger (4 April 1979 – 22 January 2008) was an Australian actor and director. After performing roles in several Australian television and film productions during the 1990s, Ledger left for the United States in 1998 to develop his film career. His work comprised nineteen films, including 10 Things I Hate About You (1999), The Patriot (2000), A Knight's Tale (2001), Monster's Ball (2001), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Brokeback Mountain (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009), the latter two being posthumous releases. He also produced and directed music videos and aspired to be a film director.

On January 22, 2008, Ledger was found in his New York apartment at the age of 28. The autopsy or toxicological investigation revealed that the actor died of an intensifying interaction of several painkillers and sedatives. The police go out of an accident. Ledger's burial took place on February 9, 2008 at the East Perth Cemetery in Perth, Australia. The actress Cate Blanchett gave the speech at the mourning ceremony.
