Heath Andrew Ledger

Heath Andrew Ledger, April 4, 1979 - Jan. 22, 2008

"Seeing the film disturbed me. I felt that, as the ancient Egyptians had removed a corpse's brain through the nostril with a slender hook before mummification, the cast and crew of this film, from the director down had gotten into my mind and pulled out images. Especially did I feel this about Heath Ledger, who knew better than I how Ennis felt and thought, whose intimate depiction of that achingly needy ranch kid builds with frightening power...my story was not mangled but enlarged into huge and gripping imagery that rattled minds and squeezed hearts." - Annie Proulx, author of Brokeback Mountain
