Heath Ledger, who earned an Oscar nomination for his role as a gay cowboy in Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain," died of a possible overdose of sleeping pills. I am saddened by his death because he’s one of my favorite actors. Ang Lee described Ledger’s performance as a “miracle" of acting, echoing a young Marlon Brando. Ledger is said to have suffered from insomnia. A few weeks before his death, he told the NY Times that he was so troubled from playing the Joker that he was only sleeping two hours a night. Have you seen any of Ledger’s movies? How do you like his performance? Do you think entertainers are under more pressure than other people? If you were Ang Lee, what would you say about Ledger’s death? Please read the news entitled Heath Ledger is found dead in US and give your comments.
