Thoughts On The 10 Year Anniversary Of Heath Ledger’s Passing

There is an old Jewish blessing:

“May you live until 120”

Unfortunately, some of us will not even get close to our golden years. 10 years ago today, Heath Ledger, one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood died of a drug overdose. He was 28 years old.

When I think of Heath Ledger, I think of an actor who could have easily let himself be typecast. But he fought against that type casting. The result of that fight is a brief career full of roles that are contradictory in every shape and form.  Unfortunately, like so many, he lost his life due to an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, ending what was the only the beginning of a life long career.

Wherever you are sir, RIP. You will not be forgotten anytime soon.
