Michelle Williams, actress, has given a glowing tribute for Succession star Heath to help her and Matilda’s daughter get over the loss of the Australian actor.
Michelle Williams, an actress, revealed that Succession actor Jeremy Strong helped her to get over the loss she suffered from Heath Ledger’s death in 2008.
Michelle and Heath started dating in 2004 and a year later they had Matilda – but The Dark Knight actor passed away three years later at the age of 28 and after his and Michelle’s relationship cooled in 2007.
Michelle’s friend Jeremy and her sister moved in to care for her and Matilda. Matilda, 41, was a Oscar nominee. Michelle paid tribute to Jeremy’s compassionate approach to her child.
Michelle Variety “Jeremy was serious enough to hold the weight of a child’s broken heart and sensitive enough to understand how to approach her through play and games and silliness.
“Matilda didn’t grow up with her father, but she grew up with her Jeremy. We were changed by his ability to play as though his life depended upon it, because hers did.”
Michelle met Ledger on the set of Brokeback Mountain, with co-star Jake Gyllenhaal becoming Matilda’s godfather, and Dawson’ Creek actress Busy Philipps serving as her godmother.
Michelle and Heath were also in the Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There, although they never shared any scenes together.
Heath, who played The Joker in The Dark Knight, died just before its release. This film earned him many plaudits and a posthumous Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Michelle also praised Jeremy after he was featured in the 2020 film The Trial of the Chicago 7.
It described his rise from stardom and looked at how he achieved his extreme fame. ‘Method acting’.
Michelle argued: “We’ve all been in awe of his talent.
“We’ve watched him work harder than anyone and wait a long time for other people to recognise it, so when he became so celebrated, we all celebrated.”
Michelle is now married to theatre director Thomas Kail – they secretly wed in March 2020 and she recently revealed they are expecting their second child together, following the arrival of son Hart in the summer of that year.
“It’s totally joyous,”She explained: “As the years go on, you sort of wonder what they might hold for you, or not hold for you.
“It’s exciting to discover that something you want again and again, is available one more time. That good fortune is not lost on me or my family.”
