Brad Renfro is one of the Hollywood’s Childstar in the 90’s. siguro comparable siya kay Patrick Garcia dito sa pinas. He is one of the Ultimate Crush ng Ate kO! I remeber she had poster of Brad Renfro with Devon Sawa sa Wall namin nung mga bata pa kami. Not quite a shock, kasi tagal niya ring nawala sa Hollywood scene but we are shocked in a way kasi the actor was once loved by the fans and admirers (isa na dun ang ate ko!).
Renfro was found dead on January 15, 2008 in his Los Angeles apartment, after he had reportedly spent the previous night drinking with friends. The cause of death has yet to be determined. He is survived by one son, known only as “Y Renfro”.
and the Last movie he made or his post production movie…
Brad Barron Renfro (July 25, 1982 – January 25, 2008)
NOW, THE SHOCKING ONE…….. (I’m a Fan of His……Shet!! why?!!)
(April 4, 1979 – January 22,2008)
Heath Ledger was an Academy Award Nominated Australian Actor. He Developed an early Hollywood Carreer. He Starred in both Critical and Financial Success Films including The Patriot, Monster Ball and the Highly acclaimed and Praised movie of 2005, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. Ledger also completed his production for the forthcoming and most awaited film, THE DARK KNIGHT which he plaed as The JOKER.
He starred in The Patriot, Monster’s Ball, A Knight’s Tale, The Four Feathers, Ned Kelly, The Order, and The Brothers Grimm. In 2001, he won a ShoWest Award for the Male Star of Tomorrow based on his performance in The Patriot, and worldwide release of A Knight’s Tale. In 2003, he was named one of Australian GQ’s Men of the Year for acting.
In 2005, Ledger received a Best Actor in a Drama Golden Globe nomination for his acclaimed performance in Brokeback Mountain, in which he plays Wyoming ranch hand Ennis Del Mar, who has a love affair with aspiring rodeo rider Jack Twist, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. In the New York Times review of the film, critic Stephen Holden wrote:
“Both Mr. Ledger and Mr. Gyllenhaal make this anguished love story physically palpable. Mr. Ledger magically and mysteriously disappears beneath the skin of his lean, sinewy character. It is a screen performance, as good as the best of Marlon Brando and Sean Penn.”
In another review in Rolling Stone, Peter Travers wrote:
“Ledger’s magnificent performance is an acting miracle. He seems to tear it from his insides. Ledger doesn’t just know how Ennis moves, speaks and listens; he knows how he breathes. To see him inhale the scent of a shirt hanging in Jack’s closet is to take measure of the pain of love lost.”
Ledger received “Best Actor of 2005” awards for Brokeback Mountain from both the New York Film Critics Circle and the San Francisco Film Critics Circle. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance. In the same year, Ledger played a fictionalized version of Giacomo Casanova in Casanova. The film, a romantic comedy which co-starred Sienna Miller, drew mixed reviews from critics and failed to find a significant audience among general moviegoers.
In 2006, Ledger was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 2007, he was one of six actors to portray different sides of singer Bob Dylan in the film I’m Not There.
On July 21, 2006, Ledger was officially confirmed to play iconic comic book villain The Joker in The Dark Knight, the sequel to the 2005 film Batman Begins, opposite fellow I’m Not There star Christian Bale. The film is set to debut on July 18, 2008.
The film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, in which he had been cast, was in production at the time of his death.
Ledger was found dead in his fourth floor apartment at 421 Broome Street in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City on January 22, 2008. Ledger’s body was found at 3:26 p.m. EST by a housekeeper and a massage therapist, who entered the bedroom to find him face down, naked, and unconscious at the foot of his bed with sleeping pills on a nearby night table. Police found more prescription medication in the bathroom but did not find any illegal drugs. In the weeks before his death, Ledger had been taking Ambien, a sleeping tablet that has reportedly caused bizarre behaviour and deaths.
In reaction to his death, former partner Michelle Williams was reported as saying that she was “devastated” at the loss and had boarded a plane to New York City. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd released a statement saying, “It was with great sadness that I have learned of the passing of Heath Ledger… It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation’s finest actors in the prime of his life.”
