Kim Ledger, the father of the late Heath Ledger, made an appearance on The Project and revealed that his daughter Matilda possesses a lot of her talented father’s qualities.
‘She’s got an enormous number of his mannerisms. She’s very inquisitive, she’s got his energy… ’cause Heath never slept from when he was two and Matilda’s like that,’ Kim explained.
Heath passed away in 2008 after an accidental overdose in New York. Matilda was just 2-years-old at the time. Now 9-years-old, she keeps in touch with her grandparents over Skype.
He also spoke highly of actress Michelle Williams, Matilda’s mother, who has raised her as a single parent since Heath passed away.
‘Michelle’s been brilliant. She’s kept Heath very much alive in her daughter’s eyes,’ he told the show’s panel.
‘She’s always full of questions, always wanting to know this or that about her dad. And I guess that will just get more intense as she gets older and obviously we would welcome that.’
