This melts even my black heart.
Ron Perlman is one classy guy and if you’ve ever doubted that, read this to get a idea of how awesome he is:
Zachary loved his visit for two very special reasons. It was Zachary’s wish to meet Hellboy and also to become Hellboy. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman reprise his role for the day. Ron loved the idea and donned the makeup once more (with the assistance of Lufeng Qu and Eden Elizalde) and also ordered a Hellboy sized meal of burgers, shakes, and fries for Zachary and his family and the entire Spectral crew to enjoy. Later in the day, Zachary was transformed into Hellboy with the assistance of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn. Both of the Make-A-Wish days were a complete thrill for the families of the children, as well as for the crew at Spectral Motion!
The kid wanted to meet Hellboy, and he got to! It speaks highly to Ron’s character to not only come in and go through the 4 hours of make up to be Hellboy once again, but to hang out with the kid in Hellboy mode all day, that right there just earned Hellboy his wings. What have you done today? Huh! HUH!
I’m off to shed a tear and watch Clan of the Cavebear now.
