Heath Ledger


Heath Ledger was found dead today.  This is so damned sad.  He played a prominent roll in one of my unfinished manuscripts.  I feel so sorry for his little girl and all the people who loved him.  28 is so young to say goodbye.


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

  1. I’m sad, too. And I also had no idea he was so young. (I thought he was in his 30’s for some reason. Seemed so mature.)

    I think it’s because he started acting so young. I thought he was closer to my age as well.

    This is really so sad. I was never disappointed watching his movies and thought he had a bright future in cinema, but alas he is gone now. I have never really sympathized to 6the death of somebody famous until now. So sad.

    River Phoenix and Brandon Lee both hit me hard. I had such a hard time watching The Crow and several Phoenix movies were favorites that I can’t watch now–like Sneakers and Running on Empty.

    Rinda, the evening that my sister and I saw “Showdown in Little Toyko” was the evening he died. We finished watching the movie – I think we rented it out, turned over to the news, and there was the report. We freaked out. It was so surreal.

    I do hope that they find Heath’s death was accidental and not suicide.

    I am sending mental hugs to you right now. Reading that you actually had a manuscript involving him makes you a serious fan. Not that I am not, but still. Hugs, hugs.

    I found this really sad as well.
