Heath Ledger's sister, Kate has opened up about her late brother in the lead up to the release of a documentary based on his life, I Am Heath Ledger.
The Perth-based actress turned publicist shared her memories of her brother from the months before his passing.
“He was a really happy person and he had huge plans for his future,” she said.
“I spoke to him the night before (he died) and we were laughing and joking."
“He was so proud of what he had done in Batman. And I know he had plans for another Batman. He loved working with Chris Nolan and Christian Bale and Gary Oldman. He just had the best time ever doing that film," she continued.
“When he came home at Christmas he couldn’t wait to tell us all about it and he was doing the voice and laughing, showing me all the rushes. We had a great time.”
She went on to say that she's grateful for the way her brother was portrayed in the documentary.
“It’s been incredibly emotional for all of us but actually something that we are extremely proud of and something that I think has been necessary,” she says.
“We feel that it’s kind of given Heath a voice, and our family, and can really talk about the truth of who he was.”
