    Heath Ledger, the star of Brokeback Mountain, has been found dead

    Heath Ledger, the star of Brokeback Mountain, has been found dead at his Manhattan residence, New York police said Tuesday.

    No cause of death has been confirmed, but police say the death may be drug-related. Ledger was 28.

    Ledger was found by his housekeeper at about 3.26 p.m. ET at the apartment in the upscale Soho neighbourhood where he lived, according to NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

    The housekeeper was looking for him to let him know his masseuse had arrived Ledger, born in Perth, Australia, earned an Academy Award nomination and won a Golden Globe for his role as a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain.

    He began acting in amateur theatre at age 10 and at 16, moved to Sydney, where he began acting in TV.

    Ledger made his film debut in the 1997 Australian movie Blackrock and went on to make films such as 10 Things I Hate About You and Ned Kelly, about a notorious Australian outlaw.

    He became a known as a heartthrob with 10 Things and A Knight’s Tale, but secured a reputation as a serious actor with his turn as Billy Bob Thornton’s troubled son in Monster’s Ball.

    Ledger was engaged to actress Michelle Williams, his co-star in Brokeback Mountain and they have a daughter, Matilda Rose, born Oct. 28, 2005.

    However, last September, Ledger's father reported the couple had separated.


    He was scheduled to to appear as the Joker this year in The Dark Knight, a sequel to 2005's Batman Begins that recently finished filming.

    I just heard about this tonight from my daughter. We really liked him in Brokeback Mountain but even more so in A Knight's Tale. So sorry to hear he died so young.

    I just read that the Westboro Church of Topeka, Kansas (the group who protests at the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq, and anyone even remotely connected with homosexuality) is flying people down to Australia to protest at Heath's funeral - presumably because of his role in Brokeback Mountain.

    Sick bastards ...

    I thought the law forbid them to do that here .
    Best to just keep them out of the country.
    Some churches need to reread their Bible .

    Yes, I believe you misunderstood that, Tom. I believe we all share the same thoughts on this loss and are of the same mind about this group Getlo reported on as well.
    ...you won't forget me when I go.
