      1)Eight years. I saw A Knight’s tale then, and I had the biggest crush on Heath, I was in love with him. I had this toy phone I used to pretend to call him on.

      2)His smile. Also, that he really puts a lot of himself into his roles. Even the dark ones. We all have a dark side, we just don’t want to share it because we are afraid of what people might think. Heath was real, and beautiful, and warm, and bright, and at sometimes, dark. That’s why I loved him.

      3)I’ve seen 13 of his movies, and his tv show Roar. I really want to see two hands as well, but I have to order it.

      4)I found out coming home from tennis, my dad told me Heath Ledger died. I don’t remember any of my immediate thoughts, bc I don’t think I had any. I couldn’t say “Heath Ledger died.” in my head. There’s part of me that still can’t.

      5)I don’t really remember. I think I saw it on the internet.

      6)Yes. I didn’t want it to come out so soon though, because I didn’t want it to be the last time I would see Heath.

      7)First of all, it had an awesome lesson. Second, it was really eerie. They were talking about how when people die, they are never really gone, and Heath was dead yet he was on the screen right in front of me. Also, everything fit together, almost too perfectly, the parts with Tony. It was just a great job all together.

      8)Yes, like I said, it’s hard sometimes to think of Heath as gone, but with this movie it instilled some hope, that maybe he’s not really gone. We can always watch him, and watch interviews where it really is him. Like Johnny Depp’s Tony said, “Nothing is permanent. Not even death.” Heath was such a bright light, he could never be extinguished. He’ll be immortal in his movies, and our hearts forever.

      P.S. I just want to say that, for a while whenever 11:11 came around, I wished that Matilda would remember Heath, because she was very young when he died. I just want to say, maybe if we all wish for that once in a while, it could come true.

    I found out about this questionnaire via: forum

    1) How long have you been a fan of Heath Ledger? Since 2006

    2) What aspects of Ledger’s screen persona do you enjoy? I love how he could disappear into any role he took on. You no longer saw him but the character he played.

    3) How many of Ledger’s films have you seen?
    most of them, except his very early stuff.

    4) Do you recall how you heard the news of Heath Ledger’s death? Can you recall any of your immediate thoughts?

    Shock, denial, intense sadness. I remember that day like it was yesterday.

    5) How did you first find out about The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus? I heard he was doing it from IMDB

    6) Did you look forward to the film? Not entirely, I knew it wouldn’t be as popular as TDK, but after he died it was all we had left to look forward to.

    7) What did you think of the film when you saw it? I thought it was good, but I could see why it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea

    8 ) What did you think of Ledger’s performance in the film? I thought Heath did a fantastic job. Every performance in any film he ever did he gave 110% of himself into it.

    9) Do you consider The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to be an appropriate final film for Heath Ledger? Why? No, I wish he didn’t have a final film, that he was still here and could be doing more of what he loved.

    I wish his swan song had been something everyone flocked to like TDK.

  3. 1) since 2005.

    3)7
    4)frankly i dont believe he’s gone. he’s relocated. witness protection maybe ?
    5)tmz

    9)no because it didnt quite show how talented he was. it didnt seem to challenge him.

    I found out about this questionnaire via: IMDB

    1) How long have you been a fan of Heath Ledger?

    Since 1996, watching “Sweat”

    2) What aspects of Ledger’s screen persona do you enjoy?

    His charm, he just has that “X” factor about him

    3) How many of Ledger’s films have you seen?

    14….

    4) Do you recall how you heard the news of Heath Ledger’s death? Can you recall any of your immediate thoughts?

    I still remember every detail. Somone sent me a SMS in the morning to tell me and I got up to watch the news. I was very shocked, and awfully sad during the day, cried a few times. Just couldnt believe he was so young and what a waste of talent

    5) How did you first find out about The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus?

    I heard about it on TV and on IMDB

    6) Did you look forward to the film?

    Absoultely! Couldnt wait to see his final piece of work, it was very emotional watching it, knowing he wouldnt be in anymore movies.

    7) What did you think of the film when you saw it?

    I thought it was a bit boring in the beginning, not a huge Terry Gilliam fan, but it picked up and I really enjoyed it by the end.

    8 ) What did you think of Ledger’s performance in the film?

    He did a great job as always, it was defintely a role suited to him, so quirky and not a part the average actor would consider.

    9) Do you consider The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to be an appropriate final film for Heath Ledger? Why?

    I dont think any film would be approraite for a final film, no matter what movie he did after The Dark Knight he would always be remembered for that. But what a movie to be remembered for and an Oscar to applaud his talent. Couldn’t ask for anything better.

    I found out about this questionnaire via: IMDB

    1) How long have you been a fan of Heath Ledger?
    Since 2005, right before Brokeback Mountain was released.

    2) What aspects of Ledger’s screen persona do you enjoy?
    I like how he was very confidant on screen where in real life he seemed shy and unsure of himself.

    3) How many of Ledger’s films have you seen?
    Most of them. There are 2 or 3 I have put off watching, I like that there is still movies he is in that I have yet to see. I have not seen any of the series he was in (Sweat,Roar) though I would like to.

    4) Do you recall how you heard the news of Heath Ledger’s death? Can you recall any of your immediate thoughts?
    My sister, knowing that I loved Heath, text messaged me. I told her I didn’t believe her and she told me to turn on my tv, sure enough he had died and everyone was speculating and putting in their two cents. I remember being furious at the media for all their guesses and leaping to conclusions. I remember they were speculating on the amount of prescription drugs he had in his apartment. I felt it was completely disrespectful to him and to his loved ones. I was completely heart broken. I cried and was depressed. I remember feeling stupid because I didn’t even actually know this person, yet I was mourning him.

    5) How did you first find out about The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus?
    I believe I saw it on IMDB before he passed away.

    6) Did you look forward to the film?
    Yes and No. I looked forward to his performance but I didn’t look forward to knowing it would be the last movie he was in.

    7) What did you think of the film when you saw it?
    I thought it was good, but I was a bit confused. I loved that Depp, Law, and Farrell stepped in to complete the role of Tony.

    8 ) What did you think of Ledger’s performance in the film?
    Wonderful, as always. He completely embodied the character of Tony.

    9) Do you consider The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to be an appropriate final film for Heath Ledger? Why?
    I don’t think I would have been fully satisfied with any film that happened to be his “last film”. However I did like the movie, and I liked what he added to it.

    1) Since 2000 when I first saw him in “The Patriot.”
    2) The way he completely disappeared into whatever role he was playing.
    3) I have seen 8 of his films (10 Things, The Patriot, A Knight’s Tale,
    Monster’s Ball, The Brothers Grimm, Candy, The Dark Knight & Dr.
    Parnassus)
    4) I heard of his death while watching the news & was incredibly shocked.
    As time passed I became quite sad that he had died. In fact, the only
    celebrity deaths that have made me cry were that of Ledger and Chris
    Farley.
    5) I first heard of Dr. Parnassus when Ain’t It Cool News posted a trailer
    for the film shortly after the release of The Dark Knight.
    6) Very much so.
    7) I was blown away by it. Besides being a Ledger fan, I am also a huge
    fan of the director, Terry Gilliam, and of Johnny Depp.
    8) Ledger was incredible in the film, so much so that it made me even
    sadder that he had died so young. I also found it very eerie that the
    first time we see him he is found hanging by a noose from a bridge &
    is kind of dressed like a clown.
    9) Yes and no. Yes, because the film is so imaginative & because Heath
    is so good in it, and no because I wish he was still alive.
