Heath Ledger found dead…

I was really sad to hear about his death… I really really respected him as an actor. See the BBC’s “Life in Film” video.
Some tributes: “I had such great hope for him,” said Oscar-winning actor-director Mel Gibson. “He was just taking off and to lose his life at such a young age is a tragic loss.”

In 2001, Mr Gibson had cast Ledger to play his son in the American war of independence epic, The Patriot.

“What a terrible tragedy. My heart goes out to his family,” said fellow Australian actress Nicole Kidman.

American actor John Travolta, who was in Australia at the time of Ledger’s death, said the young actor had been one of his favourite performers.

“His abilities are rare…it’s a tremendous loss,” said Mr Travolta.
