In Discussion: Heath Ledger in Roar

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks Community Event Exhibition and Shows

24 Aug 2018

Television audiences love sword-and-sandals tales and in the late 1990s it (briefly) appeared that Aussie-filmed US series Roar would take the crown from shows like Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess. At only 17, Heath Ledger led an international cast in this story about the 4th Century Irish fighting their Roman oppressors. We talk with series production designer Stewart Burnside about the series and Heath’s entry into the international marketplace. Screening: Roar. Ep 1. ‘Pilot’ D: Ralph Hemecker W: Shawn Cassidy and Ron Koslow. Aired July 14, 1997.
