Hugh Jackman lived up to his reputation of being one of the nicest guys in Hollywood this week after he sent a video message to a young Irish fan.

Seven-year-old Emma from Lucan got a personal reply from the actor after her mum Jacqueline Cooney shared a video of her singing A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman.

It soon went viral after Jacqueline shared the clip on Twitter, asking for help to get the actor’s attention so he could see it for himself.

Jacqueline explained how her little girl is "obsessed" with The Greatest Showman and the actor, and since they weren't able to get tickets to his Dublin show in May, Emma decided to sing a song for him instead.

A few days later, Hugh replied with his own video, saying, "I just want to say your little girl, thank you so much for singing that song.

“Thanks so much for being a fan. And never stop dreaming. Remember, life is what you choose to make it so make it fantastic!"

Hugh Jackman isn't the only Hollywood star making Irish kids' dreams come true this week - PJ from Kildare had always wanted to meet his idol Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, and thanks to Make-A-Wish Ireland, he was able to do it.

Along with some other kids, PJ got to spend time with the former WWE star on the set of his upcoming movie Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and was even showered with gifts like a X-Box.
