Heath Ledger, actor found dead in NYC apartment

Just hitting the news wire are reports of the untimely death of Australian actor Heath Ledger. Information gathered from sources—at this time—include that Mr. Ledger was in “…full cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived” at his trendy Soho, NYC apartment.

Heath Ledger who starred in Mel Gibson’s The Patriot, went on enriching his Hollywood resume with starring roles in A Knight’s Tale, The Brother’s Grimm, and was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his performance in Brokeback Mountain.

At this time it appears that Heath died after an apparent drug overdose insofar as he was literally surrounded by wayward pills.

Heath Ledger and his long time partner, Michelle Williams, of Dawson’s Creek acclaim have a child together.
