Actor Ryan Reynolds made a terminally ill 5-year-old boy’s dreams come true with a special video call.
Young Daniel Downing has just months to live after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor earlier this month. But spirits were high for the boy when he Facetimed with his hero.
Heart-wrenching footage shows Daniel tell the actor that he has been doing “poorly”, but he hid it well in the presence of his hero, who took him on a 15-minute tour around the set of Deadpool 2.
“All the camera crew waved hello and Daniel had his Mr Pool t-shirt on (like the Mr Men but for Deadpool).
“Daniel was telling Ryan how poorly he’d been and how his friends had helped him feel better,” Daniel’s mom Stephanie told The Sun.
“He had to dash off to film, but that was good really – Daniel gets tired very quickly.”
