HEATH LEDGER's (CASANOVA) acting career took off in his hometown of Perth, Western Australia. Honing his skills on stage in Australia starting at the age of twelve, Heath workshopped plays with The Globe Shakespeare Company and the Midnight Youth Acting Company. He quickly landed roles on such Australian television series as "Clowning Around,” "Bush Patrol,” "Corrigan,” "Ship to Shore” and "Home and Away.” He also co-starred in a number of independent films: "Black Rock,” "Paws” and "Two Hands” opposite Bryan Brown which screened at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.

In 1997, Heath starred in his first American television series, "Roar,” for Universal and FOX television. The mid-season replacement, which also co-starred Keri Russell ("Felicity”), didn't take Heath too far from home, filming in Queensland, Australia. It was directly after this series that he landed his first American talent agent and made his move to the United States.

Since then, Heath has starred in a number of diverse roles including "Four Feathers” for director Shekar Kapur, Twentieth Century Fox's "The Order” and Columbia's "A Knight's Tale.” He was also seen opposite Billy Bob Thornton and Halle Berry in the critically acclaimed "Monster's Ball” for Lions Gate. He starred opposite Mel Gibson in "The Patriot,” was in the Touchstone release "10 Things I Hate About You,” played the title role in "Ned Kelly” for Working Title Films and most recently appeared in Columbia's "The Lords Of Dogtown” for Director Catherine Hardwicke.

In 2005, Ledger stars in "Brokeback Mountain” for director Ang Lee adapted from the E. Annie Proulx short story. The film debuts at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals. Heath Ledger also stars opposite Matt Damon in Terry Gilliam's "Brothers Grimm” for Miramax Films and in the upcoming independent film "Candy” for Australian director Neil Armfield.
