Melbourne, May 28 (ANI): Late actor Heath Ledger was incredibly mellow and laid back during the filming of the new Batman movie, co-star Christian Bale has revealed.
Bale, who reprises his role as the caped crusader in Dark Knight opened up about his tragic Aussie co-star in a new interview with Details magazine.
“He was incredibly intense in his performance but incredibly mellow and laid-back,” theage.com.au quoted Bale, as saying.
He added that Ledger, who plays the role of the Joker in the movie, took the part to a new level.
“Certainly there was this great anarchistic streak to it - just getting dirtier than anybody’s envisioned the Joker before,” Bale said.
“This character has power because he has no limits, absolutely nothing to lose.”
He added that he was saddened that Ledger would not see the film.
“Naturally it was something I wanted to share with him - and expected to do so,” he said.
“And I can’t do anything else but hope that it will be an absolutely appropriate celebration of his work.”
The Dark Knight is scheduled to hit theatres in Ledgers native country on July 17. (ANI)
