I just heard the awful news that Heath Ledger has passed away. I wanted to post a tribute to this amazing young Australian who I have watched blossom into an exceptional actor. From the crappy after school specials to the silver screen he has mesmerised audiences with his talent and charisma. I will always remember him for being classy in the public eye and for holding himself with dignity in such a demanding career. As a fellow Australian I’m so proud of what he has achieved and my heart goes out to the Australian Film Industry who has lost one of their brightest gems.
