Heath Ledger Biography

Gloriously emerged as a Hollywood's rising star in a relatively short time, Heath Ledger perhaps was the most cherished Australian actor of his generation. Previously considered to be a shallow actor, he had displayed such memorable performances to eventually gain people's acknowledgment of the great talent and intelligence he really possessed. A man of Irish and Scottish descent, he was born on April 4, 1979 at Subiaco Hospital in Perth, Australia with the name Heath Andrew Ledger to Kim and Sally Ledger. At the age of 10, his parents, however, decided to have divorce and each later remarried with someone else, giving him two more sisters, Ashleigh Bell and Olivia Ledger, aside from the older one, Kate.

Heath afterwards entered Perth's Guildford Grammar School in which he started to develop a fondness for acting as a result of his involvement in drama class. Polishing his skills in portraying characters at the companies of Guildford Theatre, Globe Shakespeare, and Midnight Youth Acting, he began to build an impressive resume of theatrical experience through his performances in, among others "Bugsy Malone," "Peter Pan," "Hamlet," and "Royal Hunt of the Sun." Intended to look for much larger acting opportunity, the 16-years-old boy then left his school a year earlier to head for Sydney with the companion of his long-time best friend, Trevor DiCarlo.
