Co-Stars In Heath Ledger's Final Film Donate Earnings To His Daughter

Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell have donated their fee for completing Heath Ledger's final film role to the late actor's daughter.

The three actors played different versions of Ledger's character, Tim, in the film "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus."

In the film, the leader of a traveling theater troupe takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations.

Ledger's death midway through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended, and the three actors were then cast to portray physically changed transformations of Ledger's character as he travels through dimensions.

'The Sun' reports that the actors decided the money they earned for appearing in the film should go to Matilda, since Ledger had not updated his will at the time of his death to include his two-year-old daughter in it and they were somewhat concerned for her future.

"That’s extraordinary! And wonderful," director Terry Gilliam tells the paper. "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.'"
