Heath Ledger’s daughter gets aid from starsAugust 18th, 2008 - 11:18 pm ICT by IANS
New York, Aug 18 (IANS) Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell who completed the late Australian actor Heath Ledger’s role in his final film have donated their pay to his two-year-old daughter, Matilda.They played versions of his character Tim in fantasy epic “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus”, directed by Terry Gilliam, reports thesun.co.uk.
The three stars were worried for Matilda’s future as Ledger left an old will that did not include his daughter.
“They didn’t take money. It goes to Heath’s daughter. That is extraordinary and wonderful and when you are a part of that, you think, Ah, this is maybe why I went into the movies in the beginning. I thought it would be full of wonderful people,” said Gilliam.
He added: “We’ve got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help.”
Ledger, star of “The Dark Knight”, died Jan 22 in his Manhattan apartment from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. He was 28-years-old.
