In recent interviews, director Bradley Rust Gray revealed that a true tale served as the basis for his newest movie.
The mother of Heath Ledger’s only child, Michelle Williams, experienced a personal tragedy that was brought to the big screen and received favorable reviews from critics.
The actor, however, turned down a promising role because she couldn’t go through the same agony again.
Williams was Bradley’s co-writer when he first started writing the script, according to Entertainment Weekly.
A girl who lost a loved one and wants to start living and loving again is the subject of the movie.
The actress would portray the sad widow, the director believed. Michelle, however, was never able to play this part.
She realized that everything was still too near for her when we were getting ready to shoot the movie and respectfully declined, he claimed.
Just a few months before we lost the illustrious actor in January 2008, Ledger and Williams divorced in 2007.
Michelle had a severe blow from the loss of a loved one, something she had previously been able to handle.
In 2020, Thomas Cale, a theater director, and Michelle got married.
Our lives now appear to be improving. My perspective on the world and my daily interactions have changed as a result of Heath’s passing.
As a mother, it altered me. It has altered the type of work that I truly aspire to accomplish and has evolved into a prism through which I view the world. Everything is transient, the actress remarked in an interview.
