Before They Were Stars: 14-Year Old Heath Ledger in “Ship to Shore”

Since I just made a posting about “The Joker Blogs”, I suppose it’s only appropriate that I also showcase the first credited acting role of Heath Ledger’s career. This is from an Australian kids show called Ship to Shore and Heath was only 14 at the time this was filmed. It’s obvious that he was probably hired because of his cycling skills rather than his acting since he has no lines of dialogue and his entire role consists of him competing in a long bike race that starts at around the 2:00 of this clip. But what a fine job of pedalling Mr. Ledger does!
