We lost so many things when Heath Ledger passed, not the least of which was a totally charming, totally funny guy who—despite his many dramatic roles—always seemed one second away from making us laugh. Proof positive of his knack for the improved highlight is this video resurfaced and then reposted by BuzzFeed Australia featuring the future Oscar winner starring in one-half of one of the greatest red-carpet moments ever.
Outside the 2006 AFI awards, Ledger was working the press line when Magda Szubanski of the Aussie comedy show Kath and Kim spots him and lets out the kind of scream that only fangirls can make. Ledger is game for the moment and, well, just watch. It’s a classic that we’re glad to see is rising again.
