(Newser) – Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell, who banded together to complete Heath Ledger’s final film role, in the The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, gave their paychecks to his daughter, Matilda, the Sun reports. “They didn’t take money—it goes to Heath’s daughter,” director Terry Gilliam said.
