Five years after his death, the parents of Heath Ledger are giving their first interview on life without their son to Australia’s New Idea magazine. His parents Sally and Kim tell the magazine that the loss of Ledger has expectedly left an indelible void in their lives. “It has been an extremely difficult five years, as not a day goes by when we don’t feel the immense loss of Heath.”
Before he died, however, he was father to then toddler Matilda, now aged 7, with whom the couple maintains a close personal relationship. “Matilda is indeed very much like her dad – she has long limbs and similar features,” Sally said. “However, she also possesses the beauty of her mamma – lucky girl.”
