HEATH LEDGER BIOGRAPHY

The following biography is from Wikipedia.org “The Free Encyclopedia.”

 

Heath Andrew Ledger (born April 4, 1979) is an Australian actor.

 

****

 

Early life

Ledger was born in Perth, Australia of Irish and Scottish descent. He lived in Western Australia until he was 16, when he left school (Guildford Grammar), a year early. He then moved to Sydney with his best friend, Trevor DiCarlo, in pursuit of a career in acting. Ledger got his first break by starring in the American television series Roar.

 

Film career

In 1999, Ledger starred in the Hollywood movie 10 Things I Hate About You and also had the lead role in the acclaimed Australian movie Two Hands, directed by Gregor Jordan. Since then he has starred in such films as The Patriot, A Knight's Tale, Ned Kelly, The Order and The Brothers Grimm.

 

Heath Ledger's most professionally successful year to date was 2001, with his ShoWest Award for the Male Star of Tomorrow based on his performance in The Patriot, and worldwide release of the hit anachronistic jousting romp A Knight's Tale. In 2003 Heath was named one of Australian GQ's Men of the Year for acting.

 

In 2005, Ledger received a Best Actor in a Drama Golden Globe nomination for his fiery and acclaimed performance of Wyoming ranch hand, Ennis Del Mar, who falls in love and has an ongoing love affair with aspiring rodeo rider Jack Twist, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, in the controversial, yet groundbreaking and critically-acclaimed film Brokeback Mountain, adapted from Annie Proulx's Pulizter Prize winning story by Diana Ossana and Larry McMurtry, and directed by Ang Lee.

 

Ledger's reviews for this performance were outstanding. In the New York Times rave review for Brokeback Mountain, film critic Stephen Holden wrote, "Both Mr. Ledger and Mr. Gyllenhaal make this anguished love story physically palpable. 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." In another rave review in Rolling Stone magazine, film critic Peter Travers writes, "Ledger's magnificent performance is an acting miracle. He seems to tear it from his insides. Ledger doesn't just know how Ennis moves, speaks and listens; he knows how he breathes. To see him inhale the scent of a shirt hanging in Jack's closet is to take measure of the pain of love lost."

 

Among the other recognition Ledger received for his performance in Brokeback Mountain is a New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor of 2005 and a San Francisco Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor of 2005.

 

Private life

He is engaged to actress Michelle Williams, whom he met on the set of Brokeback Mountain (2005), a film which won the coveted Golden Lion at the 2005 Venice Film Festival. Together they have a daughter, Matilda Rose, who was born on October 28, 2005 and weighed 6lbs. 5oz.
