Tom Hardy has granted a fan their dying wish with a FaceTime call.
Jo-Anne Shaw, 58, informed staff at the Myton Hospice, Warwick, that getting to meet the Mad Max star would make all of her dreams come true.
So, the palliative care team got to work on social media in a bid to call out to the 45-year-old and make it happen.
Their post garnered more than 3,000 shares and hundreds of comments until it eventually fell into the hands of Tom himself, who responded by saying: “Of course. Be my pleasure.”
The hospice updated their post on Facebook on Friday, writing: “THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR HELPING US SPREAD THE WORD!
“We are thrilled to say that Jo-Anne not only spoke to Tom this morning on the phone but has just had a Facetime with Tom too!
“We will be releasing more information in the upcoming days but for now, thank you all so much!
“You truly are amazing! We've been blown away by Tom's kindness and support too. Jo-Anne and her family cannot thank you enough for making this happen,” they concluded in their update.
The mum-of-two said that the actor talked to her ‘as if he was a friend’.
In an interview with the BBC, Jo-Anne said: “I'm such a big fan of his, I've watched all his movies and boxsets, especially during lockdown. I love him to bits.
“I haven't been very well for a while now, but he put me on a pedestal for a day and that's all I can ask for.”
Jo-Anne, who has terminal cancer, was even gifted a life-size cardboard cutout of Tom instead of flowers from a friend.
Tom told Jo-Anne that she is ‘a very popular lady’ during the phone call, too.
And it seems that the hospice has been a fan of the actor for a while.
Last week, they posted a photo to their Instagram of their Christmas tree with a cut-out of the star standing next to it, captioning the image: “It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
“It’s not every day that superstar Tom Hardy helps you put up your Christmas tree. #WeWish.”
