Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger made many terrific films, leaving enduring work like Brokeback Mountain, Candy and 10 Things I Hate About You, but if there's any question about the role for which he'd be remembered, it vanished after his first devastating Dark Knight entrance. "I'm going to make this pencil disappear," leered Ledger's scarfaced jester, before turning some hired goon's cranium into a branch of WHSmith. Little did audiences know that this was just the beginning; what followed was carnage unseen since Godzilla's last trip to town, not to mention exploding hospitals, violent death and a handy new use for cellphones that 02 won't be adopting anytime soon. "He had charisma as invisible and natural as gravity," explained Nolan in a Newsweek tribute. Even in a role once owned by a maniacally inspired Jack Nicholson, Ledger is unforgettable.
