On January 22, 2018, it will be the 10th anniversary of iconic Australian actor Heath Ledger's death. The Perth-born star was thrust into the spotlight in the 1999 teen Shakespeare adaptation in 10 Things I Hate About You, and the actor went on to star in more critically acclaimed films like The Patriot, Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight.

Heath tragically passed away in New York in 2008 from a prescription drug overdose. He left behind a 2-and-a-half year-old daughter, Matilda, and ex-partner Michelle Williams who he had split with in 2007.
