Friends have told how Heath Ledger was 'desperately unhappy' in the final days of his life.

Ahead of the new documentary I Am Heath, the late actor's friends and family have talked about the private life of the famed actor. Heath was just 28 when he passed away from an accidental overdose in 2008 leaving behind a then two-year-old daughter, Matilda. Towards the end, the star was struggling physically and emotionally, especially after his split with Matilda's mother Michelle Williams, those close to him said.

Heath's sister Kate told People she one of the last people to speak to her brother before he died. She told People, Heath had a chest infection and she warned him to be careful with mixing medications.

'He said, ''Katie hello, Come on, of course.'' 'The night before he passed we were joking and laughing because he was threatening to take out little sister [Ashleigh] to get her nose pierced and then he said, ''I've got to go. I'll call you at 8.30 in the morning.'' I told him ''I love you'', and that was it.'

Singer Mia Doi Todd said he threw himself into his last two roles and being away from his daughter was hurting him.

'I could sense the break up with Michelle was driving him toward the edge. Not being the perfect father and the perfect partner to the mother of your child was really getting to him.'

The actor had confided in his friend and vocal coach, Gerry Grennell, that he knew he had to stop relying on medications.
