Heath Ledger 1979 - 2008

He was one of the finest actors of his generation with a promise of greatness that mirrored, if not surpassed, James Dean's. I am reminded of a quote by Robert Graves, who said of Shakespeare: "Despite the fact that everyone says he's very good; he really is very good." So was Ledger. He will be missed.
