Everyone Needs A Father: Matilda Heather Grows Up A Half Orphan And Misses Her Dad
December 13, 2018
What is it like to grow up without a father? Sadly, there are lots of such stories all around the world. It is awful, it is depressing, it is just not right. However, does it make any difference if your dad was famous and rich?
Heath Ledger's daughter Matilda raised only by her mother
Matilda was 2 years old, when her father, Heath Ledger, died from prescription drugs overdose. After Matilda’s birth, Heath took time off from filming to dedicate himself to the new role of father. However, it all lasted not long.
Matilda’s mother and Heath Ledger’s ex-girlfriend, Michelle Williams, raised and protected their daughter alone. And although she is a famous movie-star herself, she managed to provide Matilda’s life with privacy. It is surprising how much this 12-year-old girl looks like her father. But there’s another great resemblance. As Heath’s sister, Kate Ledger, told a few years ago, Matilda has her father’s unlimited energy inside.
