It seems it’s always the bad boy roles that bring the long desired fame. During his short career, Ledger successfully went from pretty boy (10 Things I Hate About You) to supervillain (The Dark Knight) for which role he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Too bad he couldn’t be there to receive the prize.  The intense work affected his health, he had issues sleeping as his body was exhausted still his mind couldn’t rest. He had some pills prescribed and this brought an abrupt end to his life. He only lived 29 years, but his legacy will be long remembered.
