Young Australian actor Ryan Corr has been awarded this year’s Heath Ledger Scholarship by Australians in Film. Corr graduated from NIDA in 2009 after working for years on Australian TV. The Heath Ledger Scholarship is in its third year and gives Aussie actors a chance to travel to the US to further training and get acting opportunities. He signed with WME and is  looking for those roles. Scholarship worked well for last year’s recipient Bella Heathcote, who has landed roles in the David Chase-directed Twylight Zones and the Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows.
