Gilliam Struggling With Ledger's Final Scenes

Editing HEATH LEDGER's final movie has been tough for director TERRY GILLIAM - because he's reminded every day of what a great actor the tragic star was.
The Aussie was shooting Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus when he died from an accidental drug overdose last year (22Jan08) - and now the British filmmaker has the tough task of piecing his great scenes together.
Gilliam says, "It's like I work with Heath every day. He's in fine shape, at least in the world I'm inhabiting at the moment.
"It just doesn't make sense. Every day goes by and I think, 'He'll be back in a second.'"

"He'll be back in a second." :( I find myself feeling the exact same way. Holding my breath, until this nightmare is over and someone makes it right. I know exactly how Terry feels.
