Heath Ledger's 'Dr. Parnassus' Co-Stars Donate Film Earnings to His Daughter

Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell who fill in for Heath's final role in the film have decided to donate all their earnings to his daughter Matilda because she wasn't included in his will.


Sympathy keeps flooding in for late actor Heath Ledger's family members, most specifically his young daughter Matilda Rose Ledger, even months after his tragic death in January. Actors Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell are those who show some support for the girl, giving her all the earnings they received from "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" because Heath had not updated his will at the time of his death to include her.

Depp, Law, and Farrell, all of whom play versions of Heath's character "Tim" in the Terry Gilliam's fantasy-drama, willingly donated their payments from the movie to little Matilda over concern of her future. Serving as the film's director, Gilliam confirms the donation, telling The Sun the three actors "didn't take money - it goes to Heath's daughter."

He went on claiming, "That's extraordinary! And wonderful ... and when you're 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.' And we've got a movie full of wonderful people who did extraordinary things to help."

Heath sent shock to public worldwide when he was found dead on January 22 in his Manhattan apartment from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. He was 28 years old. Not only his death has raised major media headlines, but also concern among many celebrity friends.

Matilda is Heath's daughter with ex-fiancee Michelle Williams. She was born on October 28, 2005. She's currently living with her actress mother.
