When hunky, twenty-year-old heart-throb Heath Ledger first came to the attention of the public in 1999, it was all too easy to tag him as a "pretty boy" and an actor of little depth.He spent several years trying desperately to sway this image, but this was a double-edged sword.Heath Ledger was born on the fourth of April 1979, in Perth, Western ...
As the story goes, in junior high school it was compulsory to take one of two electives, either cooking or drama.
As Heath could not see himself in a cooking class he tried his hand at drama.
Heath was talented, however the rest of the class did not acknowledge his talent.
When he was seventeen he and a friend decided to pack up, leave school, take a car and rough it to Sydney.
Heath believed Sydney to be the place where dreams were made or, at least, where actors could possibly get their big break.
