It’s been eight years since her father’s untimely passing but the legacy of Heath Ledger is still very much alive in his only daughter, Matilda Ledger. It’s easy to see just how much little Matilda looks like her Oscar-winning dad, who sadly passed away in 2008.
Indeed, the striking resemblance has been noticed by her loved ones including her grandfather Kim Ledger.
"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 told Channel Ten’s The Project in March last year.
“I mean, she’s just got this ball of energy and she radiates this little aura, Heath was kind of like that. So it’s fabulous really.”
“Michelle’s been brilliant. She’s kept Heath very much alive in her daughter’s eyes. 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,” Kim poignantly added of Matilda's mother, who was with the Perth-born actor for three years between 2004 and 2007.
