London: Gary Oldman has revealed that he was so taken aback when he came to know about Heath Ledger’s death that he thought he’d been shot with a bow and arrow.

According to the Sunday Times magazine, the 53-year-old English actor had worked with the late actor on the set of ‘The Dark Night’ just months before he died from an overdose of prescription drugs in 2008.

“(I was) shocked, couldn’t believe it. You know, just, like, an arrow, like I’d been shot,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“Oh, f**k! F**k! Lovely kid, you know? Only 28,” he added.
