Christopher Plummer and Heath Ledger
« on: September 17, 2009, 03:16:11 pm »
The Toronto International Film Festival is now under way and Heath's last film, The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, will be shown this weekend. Christopher Plummer, who plays the part of Dr Parnassus, is in town to promote it. I thought some might like to read what he had to say about the film and, more specifically, about Heath Ledger:

Plummer says he's quite happy with Parnassus, although he thinks the cold winter nights shooting in London might have contributed to the untimely death of Heath Ledger. "He came down with walking pneumonia and came back from Australia after Christmas with terrible insomnia and then came the terrible news from New York that he had taken one too many. He was just adorable, a wonderful actor. He wanted to direct and he adored his daughter and any suggestions by the press that it was a case of suicide is disgraceful. He had everything to live for and wanted to, but made a terrible mistake."

Thanks for this.  It will be interesting to hear more and more about the Imaginarium from now on (hopefully).  It'll be so, so tough to see that one.
