* [[AuthorExistenceFailure Actor Existence Failure]]: A unique subversion with ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus''. Ledger died suddenly while filming it. Since the film is set in a multiverse and Ledger had filmed all of his scenes in the real world before his death, JohnnyDepp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law portray him in alternate universes (they gave their paychecks to Ledger's daughter).

* FakeBrit: For ''Film/AKnightsTale''.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Who knew a [[Film/TheDarkKnight sinister merrymaker]] could be portrayed so devilishly by such a nice guy?
* RomanceOnTheSet: Met Michelle Williams while filming ''Brokeback Mountain''.



* StarMakingRole: Despite having had an Oscar nomination and a respectable career beforehand, ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' is remembered as the movie that cemented him as a legend and made him a household name.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was offered the role of Spider-man in Sam Raimi's films. One can only imagine what it would have been like had he said yes.

* CelebrityResemblance: To Joseph Gordon Levitt. Which is HilariousInHindsight when Joseph joined the cast of "Film/TheDarkKnightRises" as theNolanverse version of [[spoiler: Robin.]]

* IdenticalStranger - [[http://imgur.com/Akvau.png Joseph Gordon-Levitt]]. The creepiness of their similarity is exacerbated by the fact that they were both in ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou'', and Joseph Gordon-Levitt was a major character in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'''s sequel, ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''.

Due the circumstances of his death and the films he had at various stages of development at the time, he is the first actor to be eligible for an Oscar in each three consecutive ceremonies after his death. (''I'm Not There'' in 2008, ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' in 2009, and ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus'' in 2010)

Unfortunately, Ledger developed insomnia during and after the completion of his roles in ''I'm Not There'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. He used sleeping pills to try and curb the insomnia, but when that didn't work, he combined the pills with alcohol, which sadly resulted in his death on January 22, 2008. He was only 28 at the time of his death, and completed only half of his work as the character Tony in ''Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus''.
