I still feel in a haze of thought and emotion to do much talking here, but here are a few remarks, a great article, and some screencaps.

I'm not exactly familiar with Heath Ledger's work, Mechtild, but I was shocked to learn of his death. Recalling your 'BBM' LJ entries, it had occurred to me how saddened you would be by this tragic news.

What a sensitive and moving article. Thank you for posting it.

Thanks, Blossom. I'm glad it was meaningful for you. :)

I didn't know much about Heath, nor have I seen films with him in it, but I reckon he must have been a truly extraordinary actor and person to have earned such a wonderful article and such heart-felt tributes. I'm so sorry for his familiy, friends and his fans, like you and Maeglian. When I heard of the sad news, I instantly thought of you both. My heart goes out to you.

Thanks, Whiteling. You are so kind. *smooch*

Thank you so much for this clever article, I wouldn't have read it without your post. It picture very well the role of Heath's characters and acting in the collective imagination.

The first time I saw BM I loved the movie and I was impressed by Heath's performance and his acting was full of feelings. I barely followed his career after BM, but I'm very affected by his dead, and very sad.

Now we won't see his artistical growing but he gave us a clue of a masculine sensitivity with his performances.
May he be now in peace and experience freely all the feelings of a whole loving heart.

I haven't followed his career, either, but only because I pay so little attention to films most of the time, and I don't follow actor's careers. Because he played Frodo, I drop in at the Elijah Wood LJ community to know what he's doing. He's not easy to keep track of, if I only rely on what's on at the local movies. He's not in that many projects, and what he's been in often does not play here. But I really am not a movie-goer. LotR got me back in the theatre (many, many times, watching them over and over), but subsequent trips to the movies have been infrequent.

I would never have gone to see, much less heard of BBM, had I not read the buzz for it in the LJ's of some LotR friends that were keenly anticipating it. I adored the film, and thought Ledger was monumentally good in the role, a great role.

This was a beautiful tribute and the article was maybe the best piece I've seen so far in considering his legacy. I was very shocked and saddened by his passing and feel a lot of sympathy, not only for his family and friends, but for his fans and the BBM fandom which moved so many. He will be remembered with great respect.

He will be remembered with great respect.

I am sure this will be so. Thanks for paying your own respects here in this LJ. I really thought he was a great actor. Reading about him after his death, and finding out more about him as a person, it sounds like he was a well-liked and well-loved person my many, too. :)

Thank you for sharing this lovely article, Mechtild. Both it and your comments are fitting tributes to this wonderful man, who was not only an incredibly gifted and talented actor, but a kind and decent man as well. I've been a fan of his for about 10 years now, and had looked forward to watching him for many more years to come. I still find it hard to believe that he is gone. I will miss him...

I wish I could provide adequate consolation, Hildigard. It sounds as though you have been interested in and supporting his career nearly since its inception. I didn't know who he was until January 2006, just two years ago. I am so, so sorry he has died for, his own sake and for the sake of those who knew him. But I'm sorry because for my sake, too, someone who knew him not at all. I, too, looked forward to watching his work for a long time--for the rest of my life, I suppose. I'm a lot older than he, so I expected he'd still be going strong by the time I died.

Thanks for stopping in to comment, Hildigard. Your sentiments are appreciated.
