Heath Ledger and Gene Kelly

Adam Bernstein

In writing about the surprising death of actor Heath Ledger, at 28, I found an intriguing tidbit in an interview he gave to a Norfolk reporter in 2001: his adoration of Gene Kelly.

"I loved all those musicals," Ledger told the Virginian-Pilot. "Kelly was wonderful. I once bought myself a pair of tap shoes and tried to teach myself at home. I'm not very good and I guess it's pretty lonely that I wouldn't go out and take real classes. But then, I've never taken acting classes either."
