"U" is unproduced

If Michael Costigan said her work with Larry was known as "one of the great unproduced screenplays", Diana would respond, "I knew that it would take actors who were smart and brave to commit to this and go places emotionally that they'd never gone before - and a director who would understand this, and who would be willing to make this challenging movie on a modest budget. I never really lost faith, but I didn't think it would take seven years."

If asked to describe the people who worked on Brokeback Mountain, Diana Ossana would describe them as "a brilliant crew, experienced, talented people who had worked with notables such as Martin Scorsese, Milos Forman, Stanley Kubrick, Robert Altman, David Cronenberg, Andy Warhol, Sergio Leone, Oliver Stone, and Jim Jarmusch.  They were from all over the world:  North America, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico. South America, England, Italy."

If he were nominated for numerous awards for his portrayal of Ennis del Mar in Brokeback Mountain, Heath Ledger would win the 2005 New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor and the 2006 Best Actor award from the Australian Film Institute.

If Heath wanted to challenge himself, he would wow the world by playing the Joker, nemesis to Batman.

"C" is Casanova

If Heath Ledger wanted a break from the sadness and hard discipline of "Brokeback Mountain," he would accept Casanova as his next role, enjoying the sunshine and plentiful pasta in Venice, Italy, during the film shoot.

"D" is Dan

If Heath had played the role of Dan in Candy, he would have struggled to shoot the miscarriage scene.  "I don't usually get disturbed by scenes, but that was really tough. In between takes I was running off and calling Michelle, telling her I loved her. I didn't want to jinx my own personal life with this scene."

If Heath starred as Tony in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, he would have an assistant played by Michael Eklund.

"F" is firefighters

If asked how it was playing a gay character in Brokeback Mountain, Heath Ledger would say, "I hate to call it 'daring' or 'brave'; firefighters are daring and brave.  Iím acting. I didnít get hurt, and Iím not mentally wounded from this experience."

"G" is Gambit

If Heath Ledger had directed his first full-length film, it would have been The Queen's Gambit, based on the novel by Walter Tevis.
