Actors Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell have decided to donate acting fees earned taking over for Heath Ledger in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus to the late actor's young daughter, Matilda. Ledger passed away unexpectedly in January, leaving behind an old will which pre-dated the birth of this child with actress Michelle Williams.
Imaginarium director Terry Gilliam confirmed the actors' generosity, saying, "They didn't take money—it goes to Heath's daughter. When you're a part of that, you think, 'Ah, this is maybe why I went into the movies in the beginning.'" The film is due out next year.
