On Tuesday, actress Heather Graham took to her Instagram page to share rare pictures showing some of the memories she shared with her ex, Heath Ledger.
It has been 13 years since actor Heath Ledger died, but his memories linger in his fans' hearts and minds and those he had an impact on while he was alive.
One such person is actress Heather Graham, who dated Ledger for a year before they split in 2001. On Tuesday, she posted rare pictures of him on her Instagram page, recalling some of the times they shared.
The first photo in Graham's post showed her posing with Ledger in Prague while on the set of the horror film, "From Hell," in which she starred alongside Johnny Depp.
The second picture in the post showed as Graham wrapped her arms around Ledger's neck and shoulders while they smiled sweetly for the camera.
The third snapshot showed Ledger topless and taking shots of himself with a camera he held with both hands. Graham paid special tribute to her demised ex in her caption to the post.
The 51-year-old revealed she was going through her gallery when she found the pictures she shared. The actress also described Ledger as a special person.
In January 2008, Ledger died due to an accidental prescription drug overdose.
Many of her fans liked and commented on her post. One fan thanked her for sharing the pictures, adding that it was very nice to see them. Another user said they miss seeing Ledger perform.
Another fan thanked Graham for sharing something so personal and that part of her life with the world, while one user prayed that Ledger continues to rest in peace.
Ledger was born on April 4, 1979, in Perth, Australia. His Hollywood breakout role came in the film "10 Things I Hate About You," in which he co-starred with Julia Stiles.
He is known for his roles in the film "Brokeback Mountain," which earned him Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, and "The Dark Knight," where he portrayed the Joker.
In January 2008, Ledger died due to an accidental prescription drug overdose after completing "The Dark Knight." He received a posthumous Oscar Award for Best Actor for his exceptional performance as the Joker.
He is survived by a daughter, Matilda Rose, whom he shares with his ex, actress Michelle Williams, who he dated from 2004 to 2007. May his soul continue to rest in peace!
