"Ledger leaves behind a career of great promise, a too small body of films and the sense that he never admired his work as much as others did."

I snagged this off a signature line on another forum, I had not seen a statement before from any of the producers of BBM but here is one apparently!


"Heath Ledger was a courageous actor, and a great soul. He gave us the gift of sharing his fearless and beautiful love – of his craft, and of all who worked with him – for which all of us will be eternally grateful," says James Schamus, CEO of Focus Features and  the producer of Brokeback Mountain
“Mr. Coyote always gets me good, boy,”  Ellery said, winking.  “Almost forgot what life was like before I got me my own personal coyote.”

Drector Terry Gilliam on Heath:

In an interview last month, a few days after shooting started on "Parnassus," Gilliam said, "Heath is extraordinary. He's just so good, and he's going to be a film director. He's watching everything, and he's going to be a much better director than I will ever be."

Diddy Remembers Heath Ledger


After a stint on Broadway and a TV adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun (premiering Feb. 25), Sean "Diddy" Combs has developed a healthy acting career, but it all really started for him back in 2001. That year, the mogul appeared in Monster's Ball alongside Heath Ledger, whom he remembers as a thoughtful and always helpful friend.

"When I first arrived on set, the first person I saw was Heath Ledger," Diddy tells OK!. "He kind of took me aside and was there for me. We didn’t have to work the first day I was there, so me and him kind of hung out that day and kind of became acquaintances."

Naturally so, Diddy was nervous and blew his first few takes, only to have the late actor offer him some encouraging words.

"He kind of pulled me to the side and told me to relax and gave me some pointers. That’s just the kind of person he was," he says. "He always talked in a whisper and he always had a great energy about him."

Diddy, 38, adds that the two kept in touch and were planning to get together soon.

"I saw him a couple of weeks before he passed and we said that we were going to get together. That just goes to show you how short life is, but he truly will be missed."

Thank you for posting, but oh my God, I'm such a mess right now, I can't stop thinking about Matilda never knowing her father, even though there is nobody in the world who looks more like him than she does...

It may be some consolation to reflect that Matilda did interact with her father, and he her, and in this sense did know him, however briefly. It's very unlikely she will retain much if any memory of him, but there will be many wonderful people in her life who will share precious stories of him with her, and she will also be able to explore the significant body of work he leaves behind. And she carries some of that legacy within herself simply by virtue of being his child.

Thank you, moremojo, that's comforting.... :-*

That was beautiful. Just think, one day someone will play that to Matilda, then she,ll realise just how much her daddy loved her.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
