London: Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp has an area of his private island dedicated to late actor Heath Ledger.

The 48-year-old actor and his long-term partner Vanessa Paradis occasionally let their pals use their island, which is in the Bahamas, including the relatives of the late Australian actor, who died of an accidental overdose in January 2008, reported Daily Mirror.

Depp, along with Jude Law and Colin Farrell stepped in to finish Ledger’s last film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

“After Heath Ledger died, I thought his family could use time away from the madness so they spend a good chunk of time there. There’s a location there that we call Heath’s Place,” he said.

As well as the tribute to the late actor, parts of the island are dedicated to Paradis and the couple’s children, Lily-Rose, 12, and nine-year-old Jack.

The island also has Keef Reef, Gonzo Beach and Brando Beach, named in honour of three of Johnny’s friends, Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards, late author Hunter Thompson and deceased acting legend Marlon Brando. (PTI)
