Heath died due to the accidental mixture of his prescription drugs that resulted in cardiac arrest. He died in his New York City apartment. Matilda’s father Heath who had acted over 19 films won an Oscar in 2009 for his film, The Dark Knight.
Since Matilda was just two years old when her father passed away untimely, she might not have enough memory of her father. But Mom Michelle always shares her everything about him because she wants to ensure that Matilda knows how great her father Heath was and respect him throughout her life. The Oscar-nominated actress shared that she always reminds Matilda that her father loved her(Michelle) before anyone thought she was talented, pretty or had nice clothes.
It became intolerable for Michelle after the death of her husband Ledger. Thus, she decided to leave Brooklyn where the family was living together. She along with daughter Matilda lived in the country to avoid showbiz for six years.
Michelle, however, remained strong. She didn’t let her acting career slow down. She worked hard and became really successful. Williams managed to give Matilda, her only daughter a peaceful, stable environment and gave her enough time.
