Heath Ledger found dead in New York City

One hour ago I was wondering why this blog was suddenly attracting so many people. It's by looking at the referrers that i finaly understood, and not without sadness... One referrer page was talking about Heath Ledger's death!

That's a really sad news: a great actor has left us.

I don't know yet how his death may impact the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. I read that Heath Ledger finished principal photography on this film and was in New York for a short vacation before going back to finish effects shots but don't have confirmation yet.

Fans will be able to see at least one more performance of Heath Ledger in the Dark Knight.

For more information about Heath Ledger's death I recommend you the following article by the Washington Post:
"Heath Ledger Found Dead in NYC"

May Heath Ledger rest in peace.
Our prayers go out to his family, his crew and loved ones.

Update:
Following an autopsy we have more details about the cause of Heath Ledger's death: it was due to an acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamin. (more details here)
A great actor died because he mixxed usual medicines: taken alone they aren't harmful but combined they are really dangerous...
So beware not to reproduce the same mistake: medicine aren't candies, take them with parsimony.
