Actor to finish scenes in The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus

Colin Farrell has admitted that he feels honoured to replace the late Heath Ledger in his unfinished film.

He will shoot the remaining scenes of The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus – a fantasy which stars Johnny Depp and Jude Law.

But despite being agreeing to take over Heath’s part, Colin, 31, says he’s struggling to deal with the reality of the Australian star’s death.

‘It makes me feel uncomfortable to think about it too much,’ he reveals.

‘But it’s an incredibly painful honour to have, an honour I wish wasn’t bestowed, but an honour none-the-less.’

And Colin’s determined to do a good job.

‘It’s about getting Heath’s work out there,’ he tells Us Weekly.

‘He is too good for any of his work not to be seen, and I’m really keen and looking forward to doing it and just doing the best job I can do.’

Heath died on 22 January aged 28 after taking an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
