If there is any one image you take away from “I Am Heath Ledger,” it’s that of Ledger staring into the camera, spinning it around and around, creating his own sort of impromptu DV-selfie version of the swirling-camera POV dance duets in “Saturday Night Fever” and “Carrie.” The shots are emblematic for a couple of reasons.Ledger, as we learn, was always filming and photographing things, including himself and his friends; it was part of his compulsion to make art, to filter his experience through a vast array of lenses.The Sydney Morning Herald suggested he was made for the role because when he tried on Kelly's original iron armour, it fitted perfectly: "It was quite eerie actually," said Ledger."We're the same height and the same body weight."23) Matt Damon and co-star Ledger were originally cast in opposite roles in The Brother's Grimm.
His passing is still felt strongly by the cast and crew of Brokeback Mountain, and Jake admits he misses his friend both personally and professionally.“For the first month of shooting we all lived by this river in little trailers,” he recalled to OUT Magazine. It’s why we are all still close— not just bonded by the success of the film, but bonded by the experience.“We’d wake up and make breakfast for each other, and hang out. It was an intimate project in that way.” Heath and Michelle dated for three years and welcomed daughter Matilda together in October 2005.They were the first all-boy school to win.12) When he was 16, Ledger sat his graduation exams, then "got my marks and fucked off." 13) He and best mate Trevor Di Carlo jumped into a car and headed for Sydney.Usually a five-day drive over 4,000km (2,500 miles) of barren outback, it took them just 72 hours.14) His first big role — in Australian TV series Sweat — was as a gay bicyclist.
