Washington (ANI): Hollywood actor Heath Ledger's posthumous Golden Globe award will be given to his 3-year-old daughter Matilda, according to his mother. The late actor received the gong in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role as 'Joker' in The Dark Knight.
"I should imagine that eventually it will be going to Matilda," People magazine quoted Ledger's mother Sally Bell as saying.
"At this stage she is only so young, but down the track she will have all these things. It will belong to her because she is part of him. It is such a fantastic and wonderful legacy for his daughter. Matilda will have so many people who will be able to speak to her about her father's abilities and [the] respect he had in the industry. That is such a wonderful legacy to leave," she added.
Bell said it has been 'a bit of an emotional rollercoaster' for the family, but notes Heath would have appreciated the acknowledgement from his peers. "That's what meant the most to him really," she said.
