A touching new video shows off Aquaman star Jason Momoa calling a young fan battling cancer to cheer him up.

It’s always heartwarming to see actors help out and cheer up fans who struggle day-to-day with life-threatening conditions – and a recent video shows Aquaman star Jason Momoa on a video call with a young fan currently battling Pineoblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. The actor, who will next be seen in Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut, rang Danny Sheehan after a clip of the young boy circulated online showing how excited he was to get an Aquaman toy.

Jason Momoa shared a video to Instagram of his call with Danny on Wednesday, where the two chatted about swimming in the ocean. The Aquaman star asked the young fan “Would you ever swim with sharks with me?” which is incredibly heartwarming. Hopefully after the pandemic subsides, the Aquaman and Justice League actor will get to meet Danny in person. Take a look at the video below.
