Ledger, who died in 2008 just three years later was tragically killed.

Gyllenhaal described the experience of being on set as “a very deep and fun one.” He said, “Yet, the relationship between me and Heath during this movie was something that was built on a profound respect for their love, their relationship and for many people we know and were raised with in our lives.
