Det var den 22 januari 2008 som ett hembiträde hittade Heath Ledger livlös i sin lägenhet i New York. Skådespelaren hade av misstag överdoserat sömntabletter. Många rykten har sedan dess cirkulerat om att hans legendariska roll som The Joker i The Dark Knight drev honom i depression.
Rykten som nu systern Kate Ledger dementerar i samband med premiären av dokumentären I Am Heath Ledger på Tribecas filmfestival förra helgen.
Honestly it was the absolute opposite. He had an amazing sense of humor, and I guess only his close family and friends really knew that. But he was having fun. He wasn't depressed about The Joker.
It was coming out that he was depressed and it was taking a toll, and we were going, 'What?'
I was really shocked, because that was him having fun.
