In an emotional tribute, actor Heath Ledger's sister opened up on what life is like ten years after America’s favorite Joker overdosed by accident. Heath Ledger passed away in 2008, after wrapping up the filming of the then-latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight. His sister explained for WHO magazine that the presence of her brother is still missed in their households, while her children are continuously learning who their uncle truly was.
Heath Ledger became a posthumous legend, winning and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his stellar performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight. His sister, Kate, comments how his legacy will carry to live on, and that his loss is and inconsolable everyday realization.
Kate is still friends with Ledger’s former wife, Michelle Williams and still gets to see her niece, 12-year-old Matilda. Kate notes it is relevant for her children and Matilda to know what an exceptional man Heath was, and that not a day goes by where she doesn’t miss him terribly.
