My Heath Ledger Story

Back just before I was dating my husband, he asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I responded "Heath Ledger wrapped in a bow" just to be silly. Christmas arrived and what did I get? 10 Things I Hate About You wrapped in a big red ribbon. Perfect!

I had been a fan of Heath Ledger's since A Knight's Tale and was absolutely heartbroken when he died. He was my age, I was traveling for business at the time. I remember everywhere I went his face was plastered all over magazines and I hardly could believe it. But regardless, his work lives on and I'm still very much enjoying it. Just ask my husband - he'll tell you every time HBO plays The Dark Knight I'm glued to the TV even though we own the movie on Blue-Ray. What a mesmerizing performance.
