Just found out that Heath Ledger is dead a week ago. Known this actor since the movie "A Knight's Tale" and I was a fan.

January 22, 2008 --

Oscar-nominated actor Heath Ledger was found naked and dead in his SoHo apartment yesterday after he apparently overdosed on anti-anxiety pills.

MORE: Last Photos.

PHOTOS: Heath Ledger, 1979-2008.

The 28-year-old star's ex-fiancée, actress Michelle Williams, was flying to New York from Sweden with their 2-year-old daughter Matilda, her father said. Larry Williams told the Daily Telegraph in Australia. "My heart goes out to everyone, his family, my family, we are just very saddened. The saddest thing is his daughter who he just loved dearly."

While some sources said Ledger was depressed, the actor's father, Kim, later released a statement declaring his son's death "accidental."

One cop at the scene said it did not appear to be suicide, but police were still investigating, and an autopsy is scheduled for today.

Ledger was found by his maid and the masseuse with whom he had a scheduled 3 p.m. appointment at his $23,000-a-month, three-bedroom loft at 421 Broome St. When the two women entered his bedroom at about 3:20 p.m., Ledger was nude, lying face down and unresponsive, police sources said.

Pills were strewn around the bed, and there was a bottle next by the actor's body, police sources said. The maid and therapist called 911 at about 3:26 p.m. Emergency workers were unable to revive the star, and he was pronounced dead at 3:35 p.m.

Bottles of the generic forms of Xanax and Valium, both anti-anxiety drugs prescribed in his name, were found in the house, according to law-enforcement sources. The sleeping drug Ambien was also found near his body, sources said. The maid said she last heard the star snoring around noon.

"We are investigating the possibility of an overdose," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.

"There were pills within the vicinity of the bed."

One police source said "it does not appear to be a suicide." Ledger, a native of Perth, Australia, had lived in Brooklyn with Williams and Matilda, but the couple split last year. He has since been romantically linked to a slew of women, from Aussie supermodel Gemma Ward to Long Island bad girl Lindsay Lohan.

I was taking about it to people on myspace and apperantly they think it was natural causes. I think its hard to believe that an otherwise healthy person would just die unless he seriously had been taking large doses of drugs. Then again the stress and curse of fame maybe just got him.

I really liked Heath Ledger, A knights tale, Brothers Grimm and the Sin eater were great enjoyable films, its tragic.
I obviously never knew him personally but he has entertained me and I think he was a really good actor.
How he died is really of no importance, the end result is that he's dead and he won't doing anymore movies and he won't be with his friends and family.
I hate death and never want to die, ever!
R.I.P. Heath Ledger.

This is sad indeed.

It is a shame too. His role in the new Batman movie as The Joker looks amazing and I've heard many think it could have landed him an Oscar.

R.I.P

My theory is he was possessed by the spirit of the joker. Honestly, no joke.
He said that the role disturbed him, and he was having a very difficult time sleeping because of it. I think that he simply went too far and actually allowed himself to be possessed by the joker thoughtform.

I watched Brokeback Mountain as soon as it came out. It's been one of my favourite movies ever since.
I've always respected Heath as an actor and I couldn't even believe it when I first heard of his death.
He will be sorely missed.

again to to add to the hole joker thing: It was said that he locked himself up for to week to come up with the role... that can't be mentally healthy... to try and become the joker... and i don't know if you have seen the newest preview but he really pulled off a twisted version of him (great acting on his part!)

R.I.P.....
