High School Experience: Heath's Impact

Co-Star Remembers an Acting Legend

But it was Heath — a natural storyteller, and always reliable for a cheesy joke — who transfixed us. Before I knew it, the cast was experiencing what I’ve since found to be all too rare: a unified chemistry throughout the ensemble, without a single bad apple in the bunch. The experience was communal, it sang like a well-tuned chorus both onscreen and off-, and we all agreed that we were having the best summer of our lives.

When you think about it, I'm sure we all look back at some of our high school experiences with vivid recollections.  It's that time we refer to as blissful ignorance.  Before all our life's major decisions.  Before any major growing up.  We were growing but we didn't think of it as "growing" in any real adult sense.  We were just having fun.  Or maybe we weren't.  And I'm sure each of our high school experience didn't include being mesmerized by Heath Ledger in person.  In a recent article for Vulture, actor David Krumholtz fondly remembers his experience with the rest of the cast, as well as Heath's effect on the group as a whole, and it's pretty amazing...

Do you remember the first time you watched  10 Things I Hate About YouI most certainly do.  Obviously it was during high school.  And it was in a movie theater with a bunch of screaming teenagers, especially during Heath Ledger's break-out singing scene.  And yes, I may have even been on a date!  More importantly, what I remember most about this movie was that it quite accurately summarized the feeling of high school romance.  The movie was simply golden.  It had a magically quality all its own...
