Gary Oldman - Gary Oldman Stunned By Heath Ledger's Death

Actor Gary Oldman was so stunned when he learned of Heath Ledger's death, he thought he'd been shot with a bow and arrow.
Oldman worked with the tragic actor on the set of The Dark Knight, just months before Ledger suffered an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in 2008.
And he admits he was rocked to the core when he heard about the 28 year old's death.
Oldman tells The Sunday Times Magazine, "(I was) shocked, couldn't believe it. You know, just, like, an arrow, like I'd been shot. Oh, f**k! F**k! Lovely kid, you know? Only 28."
