  It is very rare to find a person who does not know the Joker even if he is not a follower of the movies and the strange thing is that the character who mastered the role of the Joker the most was Heath Ledger.

Who is Heath Ledger

    Heath Ledger is an Australian actor, born on April 4, 1979 in Perth, Australia. His father is Kim, a professional racing car driver. Like most successful artists and the most famous in the world, Heath’s start was very normal at the beginning. Small roles in films or series that were not very budgetary.

    But of course, Ledger did not remain in small roles and tried to act in bigger roles until 1997 came, the year in which Ledger's face will be known to producers and directors. In that year he appeared for the first time on the cinema screen in a drama called "Blackrock".

    And the last point that opened the way for him to the world of stardom was the year 1999 when he appeared in the movie "10 Things I Hate About You" alongside actress Julia Stiles, and this film is what made the final shift in his career.

The role of the Joker and its effects

    Although Batman is the hero of The Dark Night, of course, because he is the savior, and the savior of Gotham City from the bad guys, audiences all over the world and even critics considered that the actual hero of the movie The Dark Night was the Joker, this character that the actor Heath Ledger excelled in performing surprisingly, and He was able to dress the evil character in all the details, even in the way of moving the features of the face, and perhaps not only that, but if you watch the movie with concentration, you will find that the Joker was saying sentences to her after a very deep philosophical and logical dimension.

Strange events that happened during the filming of the movie

   One of the strange things also, but it is true, is the famous Joker makeup that was not designed by any of the workers in the film from the engineers and makeup experts, but rather Heath Ledger himself designed this make-up and presented it to the director Nolan and was really amazed and asked the makeup team to adopt this design as the basis for the character of the Joker, and repeat Make this look every day

   One of the strange things about this movie is that there was a clip, which is one of the famous shots, which is a snapshot or scene of the famous Joker clapping, and in fact this applause was from Ledger's improvisation and was not mainly present in the scenario. Director Nolan said about this improvisation: “In the scene of the Joker being held, we found Heath stands suddenly and calmly, applauding the frightening and exciting way you saw in the movie.

   And also there is another shot that actually frightened the actor Michael Caine, not acting during the filming. The shot is the scene of the Joker breaking into Batman's party with the gang, and when he opened the elevator and entered the Joker carrying the gun, the Joker meets Batman's assistant (Michael Caine), who was supposed to say a sentence of what was in the script, but because he sees Ledger for the first time in the Joker character in the filming, he is frightened And he forgot what sentence he was supposed to say Michael Caine later said that the appearance and attendance of the Joker were really terrifying. And when he saw him, he completely forgot what he should have said, and although he forgot the sentence and did not say it, the director ordered the continuation of filming, so the scene was approved exactly as it is in the film.
