Heath Ledger 1979-2008

Heath Ledger 1979-2008

And so we're off, with the first untimely celebrity death to be reported on these pages.

A sad one it is, too, for it is our sad duty to report the demise of Australian-born actor Heath Ledger, found dead in a Manhattan apartment.

Seen as a rising star in Hollywood, Ledger was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the 'gay cowboy' movie Brokeback Mountain.

Police suspect a drug overdose. He leaves a young family.

Sadly missed.

Poor bloke ... rapid rise to fame (a bit like me), and then a sudden exit ... he was far too young.

*Insert heartfelt sorrow here*

Dammit. I can't believe I chose Katie Price.
Britters is obviously the next on the Reaper's list

John, for what it's worth, plz not to be tempted to reveal your dreams again. Tks.

John said...

Ooh, then I choose Sienna Miller.

I haven't dreamt about her.

Well, not in that way.
