Grieving Michelle Williams Flies from Sweden to New York


Michelle Williams arrived at Landvetter Airport in Gothenburg, Sweden on Wednesday with daughter Matilda, 2. The actress, who was on location in Sweden filming the movie Mammoth, was expected to return to her Brooklyn, N.Y., home after learning of Heath Ledger’s death Tuesday in New York.

A source close to Williams told PEOPLEthe actress was “devastated” upon hearing the news. She and Ledger split in September, but they both agreed that parenting their daughter came first. “I can’t believe Matilda is going to grow up without a dad, without knowing her father,” another source told PEOPLE. “And that Michelle will have to deal with having a daughter who’s lost her father. She’s a survivor. She’ll make it, but it’s going to be hard. Her first concern is going to be Matilda.”
