Did you know, Michael Caine: “Heath is like a really scary psychopath. I did one scene with him and he was ready to go and had to come up in a lift and raid our place. I didn’t see him for rehearsal and when he came out of the lift he was so incredible I forgot my lines. He frightened the life out of me. I’d never met him before.” Caine’s true expression in this scene remained in the movie and could be seen later on – it wasn’t acting, as he said. He’s scared to death. For real. So, to get close to Ledger’s Joker performance, to a spot-on impression, can mean something. 🙂 Well done.
Ledger said the most difficult aspect of his performance as ‘The Joker’ was getting the voice and laugh right. So, don’t expect too much when trying to mimic his unique performance. It was even hard for himself to get it there. 😉
