Thanks to David Gerlach, founder of Brooklyn’s Blank on Blank, we can all listen to the voice of the late Heath Ledger anew. As reported by Lowenna Walters of London’s Daily Telegraph, the restored and animated five-minute conversation comes from a 2005 interview with Entertainment Weekly reporter Christine Spines to promote the release of Brokeback Mountain.
You can tell that Ledger liked Spines. Their rapport and respective laughter throughout is a joy to behold, and the conversation as a whole an absolutely wonderful way to re-remember a talent departed far too soon.
The Ledger interview is the latest episode of a weekly series produced by Gerlach in partnership with PBS Digital Studios. The tagline of Blank on Blank says it all: Famous Names, Lost Interviews.
