Recently, according to Perth's Sunday Times, Matilda Rose, Heath Ledger's two-year-old daughter, will inherit the late Australian actor's entire estate, predicted to be worth $20 million Australian dollars (US$16.6 million).
Ledger's will listed just 145,000 Australian dollars in assets and cash when it was drawn up in 2003, but the Hollywood star's estate is now believed to be worth more than 20 million dollars, the Sunday Times said.
Perth's Sunday Times reported Heath Ledger, the 28-year-old actor, who died in New York in January from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, had named his parents and sisters as the beneficiaries in his will.
Ledger’s will, which has been probated without the public being allowed to attend or know at the Supreme Court in Perth, was made before his daughter was born, and there had been speculation that the child's mother, actress Michelle Williams, would lodge a claim.
However, Ledger's father Kim has put an end to such speculation, revealing that Ledger’s daughter will inherit the lot. Ledger’s father told the News Ltd paper that all members of his family have gifted everything upon Ledger’s daughter, Matilda.
Heath Ledger, the Perth-born actor gained international stardom and was nominated for an Oscar for his role as a gay cowboy in the 2005 film "Brokeback Mountain". Critics have hailed his performance as the unpredictable Joker in the recent Batman film sequel, "The Dark Knight".
