Perth, Australia has dedicated a new theatre named after Heath Ledger in a special ceremony today (Tuesday). This $87 million stunner will seat 575 people and was named after the late actor because of his support for young performers, Western Australian State Premier Alan Carpenter said. He continued:
“Heath Ledger was totally dedicated to the craft of being an actor and that’s what made him successful. I think what we’re doing is continuing that support for young people who want to make a career in the arts and acting, stage and in film, whatever it happens to be.”
Ledger’s father was in attendance, where he stated that yes, all this attention has made things “little bit hard.” No sh*t; I don’t know if these things make it better, or worse. Probably both.
