The sad ending of Heath Ledger

There are things that we can learn from the sad death of heath. Whilst you will hear alot of people talking of the "pressure" that actors are under we should look at this with a sadly weary brow and make simple jumps via our initiative.

Heath and the sad passing are not testament to the pressures of acting or any other profession but sadly come as a result from the pressures of depression and drug taking.

This was a man that was already on a level of cult hero for homosexuals and teenagers as this was the large span of his acting roles. Can one see such a person dying down in the public opinion or being shortlisted for films after being batman which will be to quote a teletext page "his epitaph."

Truly it is a shame to see someone with such talent die in a society that can offer so much help to someone in his financial and emotional situation but sadly this is all mere steps of the obiter dictum dance.

A true shame for the man and his family.

Re: The sad ending of Heath Ledger

It really is sad. And nowadays it's so easy to become hooked on prescription drugs that anyone could (and does) end up the same way he did.
