About Heath Ledger

If a list of the most seasoned actors produced in the world is to be compiled, Heath Ledger’s name definitely deserves a mention.

His roles in these flicks were noticed by the jury members of many award ceremonies, who felicitated him with many honors for his performances. However, it was his portrayal of the Joker in maverick filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s flick ‘The Dark Knight’ which made him a household name across the globe. Many critics as well as audiences compared Ledger’s performance with the works of yesteryear greats like Marlon Brando and Al Pacino and even hailed him as one of the greatest actors of all time.
