Heath Ledger is found dead

AOG, Madrid

Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment in Manhattan inhabited by the actress Mary-Kate Olsen, according to the New York City police.

A native of Perth, Australia, he won acclaim for his role as a co-star in Ang Lee’s 2005 film “Brokeback Mountain”. The film, based on a short story by Annie Proulx about two cowboys who fall in love, won critical acclaim.

The New York Times said of him in that movie: “Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character. It is a great screen performance, as good as the best of Marlon Brando and Sean Penn.”

Signs point to a suicide, police sources said. Mr. Ledger was 28.

I for one, am shocked.

Icreible destino, mientras conociamos la candidatura de Javier Bardem a los Oscars por su papel en "No country for old men" nos enterábamos de la muerte de Ledger, el cual habia rechazao el papel por el cual nominan a Bardem.
Extraña burla del destino.
