Heath Ledger was always known for giving struggling Aussie actors his couch to sleep on or some advice, and his family and friends have decided to continue that tradition in Heath's name. His close friend and director of Two Hands and Ned Kelly, Grego Jordan, announced at the Australians in Film Breakthrough Awards that the Heath Ledger Fund is in the process of being set up, and will offer a scholarship to one Aussie actor a year to help them try to make it in LA. Heath's dad wrote a letter to be read during the awards, and Jordan told the audience that he had spoken to Michelle Williams, Heath's partner and mother of his daughter Matilda, who told him she would be happy to be the benefactor of the first scholarship. Of Heath, Jordan had only the best to say: "It is that generosity that somehow sums Heath up. When he had nothing, he still found a way to give to others."
