Seven years ago today, Heath Ledger passed away. Yet fans still remember him and his legendary portrayal of the greatest villain of all times: the clown prince of crime. His version of the Joker may not have been the most comic book accurate (a man falls into a vat of chemicals which deforms his features), but it didn’t need to be.
His version of the Joker was more grounded in reality, and that probably made it that much more creepier. His delivery of such an iconic character has set a standard for the role for generations to come. May he rest in peace and never be forgotten. Watch some of his best scenes in ‘The Dark Knight’ below:
