Heath Ledger. A still from the movie “The Dark Knight”

No matter what kind of “Jokers” the creators of the “Batman” movies offer us, the villain of the film, played by Heath Ledger, who tragically passed away, remains at the hotel level. Unforgettable, ominous but fascinating in its own way, frightening and alluring at the same time.

Viewers noted a Joker habit that only appeared when played by Heath Ledger. The enemy always licks his lips, but this is not present either in the comics or in other films of the cinematic universe.

One of the versions is the Joker’s traumatic past: the horrors he experienced and, of course, the “smiling” scar. According to some viewers, this is how Ledger gave his character reptilian resemblance and a subtle hint of a sensual essence.

The CBR portal claims that everything is much more ordinary. Ledger wore complex makeup and prosthetic lips to represent his scars. They weakened every time the actor spoke, and Ledger made sure they didn’t crack. Otherwise, makeup will need to be reapplied.

In this way, the actor solved the technical difficulty and gave a unique interpretation to the Joker. Recently, we talked about which talented players left us early. Heath Ledger is also on this list.
