That Time Heath Ledger Caused An Australian TV Star To Freak Out On The Red Carpet

It’s been almost eight years since Heath Ledger’s death, but he is still deeply missed. 

A video of “The Dark Knight” actor’s appearance at the AFI Awards in 2006 has resurfaced, giving viewers a glimpse of a happy, candid Ledger.

In the video, Ledger is abruptly interrupted while giving an interview on the red carpet by a high-pitched scream of excitement from “Kath and Kim” actress Magda Szubanski (portraying Sharon Strzelecki). We second her enthusiasm. 

Ledger won the Reader’s Choice Award for his performance in "Brokeback Mountain" later on that night and had another run in with Szubanski. This time, the actress was in charge of giving him the award and joked that she had come down with a case of "Heath rash." 

It could have all been a bit, but even so, it was still hysterical.
