The young actor died in 2016 in what can only be described as a freak accident: He'd gotten out of his car in his steep driveway outside his home in California and when it rolled back, it trapped him against a pillar and a security fence...The actor, who was only 27 years old, was honored posthumously when the third installment of the Star Trek franchise was dedicated in his memory.
These Celebrities Died Way Too Soon
The Australian actor and director died in 2008 at the age of 28 from an overdose. He had his breakout performance in the 1999 romantic comedy 10 Things I Hate About You and went on to star in The Patriot and Brokeback Mountain. Unfortunately, he never got to see himself star in The Dark Knight, as he died before it was released.
