Happy 38th Birthday Heath Ledger (april 4, 1979 - january 22, 2008)
“ I like to do something I fear. I like to set up obstacles and defeat them. I like to be afraid of the project. I always am.

There’s a huge amount of anxiety that drowns out any excitement I have toward the project. ”
Whatever Chirrut had become in his life – and without the temple he could not truly be a Guardian of the Whills; without joy and frivolity he could not be a clown and jokester among sober peers; without the Holy City he could not be a protector of his beloved world – whatever he was, he was not a warrior at heart, and the events of the day had eroded his spirit. While Baze, his brother and ward, had embraced his role with vicious resolve, Chirrut had fought and run and killed because fighting and running and killing were necessary.
