I believe within all of us talent exists.
Whether we exercise our talent or not is our choice.
Talent comes in different forms. Sometimes it is artistic. Sometimes it is scientific. Sometimes it is mathematical. Sometimes it is humanitarian. Sometimes it is what it is.
And sometimes a person comes along and they can’t help but follow their talent. It’s as if their talent came before them and they can do nothing but follow its lead.
I believe Heath Ledger was one of those people.
His talent was so great I often wonder how he contained it within himself.
My contribution to the Movie Madness Blogging Carnival presented by the Daily Mish Mash is a nod to Heath Ledger.
From the tightly restricted Ennis Del Mar in Broke Back Mountain to the extroverted psychotic Joker in this summer’s The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger played everything in between with brilliance and maturity beyond his years.
Heath Ledger simply was the genius of talent.
