Australia’s New Idea magazine spoke with the late actor Heath Ledger‘s parents Kim and Sally Ledger who are coming up on the fifth anniversary of his death on Jan. 22.
“It has been an extremely difficult five years, as not a day goes by when
we don’t feel the immense loss of Heath,” says mom Sally.
But Ledger’s parents say that they see so much of Heath in his seven-year-old daughter Matilda, who he had with his “Brokeback Mountain” co-star Michelle Williams.
“Matilda is indeed very much like her dad. However, she also possesses the beauty of her mamma – lucky girl,” says Ledger’s mom Sally.
“Matilda has the same walk as Heath and is such a respectful little
kid,” adds Ledger’s father Kim. “Our family has the most wonderful
relationship with both Matilda and Michelle; we talk frequently and
visit as often as we can.”
