Insomnia itself doesn't cause death, does it?
It most certainly can, I had a relative that died from health problems related ta insomnia. Insomnia can cause a whole list of health problems; heart failure, stroke, even kidney problems (yes it can cause kidney problems), etc. U can even die of simple exhaustion brought on by a lack of sleep.Insomnia itself doesn't cause death, does it?
Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage
Its a shame he is gone no matter what the cause he was a great actor who will be sorely missed.
Welp, looks like there won't be any more Joker in the Batman movies.

He did SUCH an amazing job at that character, it is going to be TOUGH! finding someone else to fill his shoes. No matter who they pick, it won't be the same guy. It will never be the same joker. And I've heard people say, "well, at least he left with something amazing on his plate..", or whatnot. And it's true. Some actors, singers, performers,etc. die, and their last work wasn't all that great.
*&%^ing AMAZING !
And to ron119125, yes he is being sorely missed. I still can't believe the guy died. I can't believe it. It was so unexpected, so sudden. And so accidental.
But yes, it was an overdose of sleeping pills what killed him, but what I am searching is the cause of why he wasn't able to sleep... it is just plain curiosity thanks ^_^
Nothing less from Pyro ^_^ Great Sig ^_^ THANK YOU!!!!"show me.... THE BEAST!!!" The Beauty and the Beast movie
Heath Ledger losing sleep over the Joker - Story @ Comics2Film.com
Take a look at that small news story, it notes about how Ledgers mind was racing and his lack of sleep during the filming of The Dark Night, those sleepless nights eventually led to an addiction of sleep medication, which in turn led to him gathering numerous brands and eventually mixing and passing away from it as a result. It's safe to say that his dedication to the role of Joker is what sparked his eventual downfall.

There's another article, detailing his life as his sleepless nights began, he chose to continue his addiction to those pills over his girlfriend and two year old daughter. He knowingly put himself at risk to continue his dedication to his roles and his acting career. He was truely a man who put effort into his acting, but it ultimately cost him, as nobody is invincible.
