Australian actor Heath Ledger is dead.

New York City police have confirmed the 28-year-old Perth-born was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on Tuesday.

"He was found unconscious at the apartment and pronounced dead," a police spokeswoman said.

Celebrity website reports that Ledger was found by his housekeeper at 3:35pm (7:35am AEDT).

Ledger has a two-year-old daughter with former fiancee Michelle Williams.

He was set to play the Joker in the upcoming Batman film "The Dark Knight".

Very sad news. Too young to die, and he was such a very talented person. Very tragic for his family and little girl.

Loved him in Patriot and Knight's Tale. Wish illegal drugs didn't exist. Wish mental and emotional pain didn't exist.

So sad. He had a sweet little girl, too. He's the same age as my oldest son. I can't imagine what his family is going through.

Leeze83, you said he was in your top list of celebrities to sleep with? I suppose you COULD leave him there... Kinda morbid though...

Just adding my 2 cents, lest everyone becomes too morose.....

Another one leaves the party too early.

Been trying to get my local radio station to play a song as a tribute. I thought Willie Nelson, "Cowboys are frequently (secretly) fond of each other".

Damn shame about his wee girl.

"Speaking in Perth, Ledger's father called the actor's death 'tragic, untimely and accidental.'

Kim Ledger called his son 'down-to-earth, generous, kind-hearted, life-loving, unselfish and extremely inspirational to many.'

'Heath has touched so many people on so many different levels during his short life,' he said. 'Please now respect our family's need to grieve and come to terms with our loss privately.'"

Beautifully said. I hope against hope they'll be given peace.

Just tragic.

I heard it on the bus back from D.C. Apparently, his work here was finished. There was much more he could have done.

I was watching television and the program was interrupted with the news of his death. I was shocked. What a tragedy.

Preliminary toxicology results were "inconclusive", but they did find several benzodiazepines at his residence including Ativan, Valium and Xanax. My guess is that he died accidentally by mixing alcohol and Xanax. Just an educated guess.

Very sad!

I'm not *saying* Justin did it, I'm just saying he seems to have slipped out with a lot of inside facts, and he had motive and opportunity.

Well, I know *MY* conscience is clear....

Once I finish up with hopefully the last tweaking on this one shopping cart, we are going to go home and watch A Knight's Tale...if you have never seen it, it is WELL worth the watch. Great music too.
