Heath Ledger Interview Part 3
By EC Gladstone

EG: Where are you living now?

HL: Prague.

EG: Just wherever you’re laying your hat? No fixed address?

HL: No its true, yeah, no fixed address, I got bags.

EG: How’s Prague been?

HL: Oh it’s cool.  Yeah, it’s a beautiful city, I had no idea what it was going to be like before I got there. I hadn’t really looked into Prague ever before.  But it’s gorgeous, its one of the only cities that wasn’t touched during WWII, wasn’t bombed at all.  So it’s completely preserved. Buildings from the ninth century, you know.  It’s gorgeous.  Completely tourist-run, but it’s great, the beer’s great.  They’ve got amazing beer, it’s like 20 cents a beer, and that’s the most expensive beer.

EG: Coming from an Australian–you take your beer seriously there.

HL: Yeah, it’s a national sport.

EG: How long have you been there in Prague?

HL: Two and a half months.

EG: How much more have you got to go?

HL: Another two months.

EG: Long shoot.

HL: Yeah, I was there a month before shooting.  Rehearsals, and just getting to know the rest of the cast. Um, yeah it is a pretty long shoot, it’s a fun shoot, but I am working with this amazingly talented bunch of actors, and an extremely cool, laid back director, and amazing crew and, it’s just, it’s so much fun, it really is.  Hard work. Yeah, I’m in armor all the time.

EG: You’re in armor all the time?  What’s that like?

HL: Heavy, hot.

EG: Did they  have a suit made to fit you?

HL: Um, they do, but at the beginning of the movie, when I first start jousting, I’m wearing the armor of Sir Hector, which I was a squire to, and he dies and so I get in his outfit and pretend to be him. And from there, we kind of use his stuff for a while until we earn a bit of cash after we win a few jousts.  And then I get my good suit of armor.  But I haven’t got there yet. We’re shooting it sequentially, but we’re still in the crappy loose stuff that’s turning my vertebrae into shit.

EG: Tell me about jousting, what’s that like?

HL: Interesting. It’s fun, it’s wacky. They were fucking nut cases, I can’t believe they did it. You know, you’re charging on the back of a horse with this big fucking pole.  The stunt dudes are actually really hitting each other.  Like running into each other
with full power in the armor and just breaking the (makes sound like “whshew”) on their chest.  Crazy, yeah.  It’s just another wacky skill that I picked up, you know, along the line of horse riding and musket firing.

EG: I was going to say, you’re on horses again.

HL: I know, I know, I love my horse.
