Christopher Nolan rebooted the Batman franchise in dramatic style when he released the superhero epic, The Dark Knight, and 10 years on from Nolan's groundbreaking masterpiece, news has emerged of a beautiful message that Heath Ledger, who played the Joker, displayed on his nurse's uniform.

Considered by many his most compelling performance, his remarkable talents rightly landed him a posthumous Oscar following his death from an accidental prescription overdose during the editing stage of the movie. 

The late Australian play a character intent on causing mass destruction to the people of Gotham, leading the Dark Knight played cooly by Christian Bale, to fight against his tyranny. Now ten years later, the British entertainment website LadBible celebrated the star by pointing out a little-known fact about Ledger's hidden message donned on his nurses' uniform.

One of many sinister uniforms the Joker wore,  the malevolent Joker managed to infiltrate his way through a hospital and gain access to Harvey Dent, upon which you may have noticed a red 'Dent' badge attached to the corner of the Joker's white jacket. Underneath it, however, was a personal tribute to his daughter.

"Just above the 'Dent' political sticker, the nurse nametag reads: 'Matilda', the name of Ledger's then-infant daughter," Screen Rant pointed out.

Now 11-years-old, daughter Matilda lives with her mother and Ledger's ex-wife and fellow performer, Michelle Williams. 

Matilda was only 1-years-old at the time of her father's death, and while she may never see her daddy again, we're sure she wakes up every day in the knowledge that her father was a terrific human being who bought joy to millions of people around the world.
