Hugh Jackman Did The Cutest Thing For A ‘Greatest Showman’-Obsessed Little Girl

Hugh Jackman has responded to a young Greatest Showman fan on Twitter - and made her dreams come true by arranging tickets for her to attend a live show featuring songs from the smash hit musical.

Emma Cooney, seven, was sad to have missed out on tickets for the performance in Dublin so her clever mother posted a clip of the young fan on Twitter singing 'A Million Dreams', a song from the 2017 movie.

"Ok Twitterverse, I need your help - my little girl is #obsessed with #thegreatestshowman and @RealHughJackman but silly me didn't realise this in time to get tickets to his show in #dublin - so she sang this for him instead! Please help me get it to him & make my girl happy!" Emma's mother Jacqueline said.

The clip has been viewed more than 30,000 times and attracted lots of praise for the girl's singing talents.

"Awww she's so precious! Bless her!" one person commented.

"All right who brought the onions!? She's one amazing little girl!" someone else replied.

And then, to the pair's delight, Greatest Showman star Hugh Jackman himself actually replied to the video.

"Never stop dreaming," the 50-year-old actor said in a video reply. "Remember, life is what you choose to make it so make it fantastic."

"Oh my god!!!! I don't even believe it!!!! Thank you sooooo soooooo much!!!!" Jacqueline wrote, while also confirming that the star's team helped organise tickets for them to attend a Dublin show. "She is going to freak! We love you forever & will never ever forget this!!!!"

The Greatest Showman, which also stars Zac Efron and Michelle Williams, was box office triumph and the song 'This Is Me' film won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
