Besides being a chess player, Ledger was an avid photographer

In 2004, he began a relationship with actress Michelle Williams after a meeting on the set of Brokeback Mountain. Their daughter, Matilda Rose, was born on October 28, 2005, in New York City, where he shared a house with Williams in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn from 2005 to 2007. In September 2007, Williams’ father confirmed to the Daily Telegraph that Ledger and Williams had broken up.

Following her breakup with Williams, the tabloid press and other public media linked Ledger romantically with models Helena Christensen and Gemma Ward. In 2011, Ward said the couple started dating in November 2007 and their families spent Christmas that year together in their hometown of Perth.

Around 3:00 p.m. On January 22, 2008, Ledger was found unconscious in his bed by his housekeeper, Teresa Solomon, and masseuse, Diana Wolozin, in his loft at 421 Broome Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood.
