WWE star and actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson always takes some time out from his busy schedule to thank his well wishers, especially the young brigade.

This time, the 43-year-old halted his shooting for a brief period in order to steal some time to interact with one of his young fans and his family.

The actor was told that the family was ready to wait until the shoot wrapped up,  but the big hearted star decided to take a break from the shoot and meet his fan with special needs.

"Thank you universe. I was on set this morning ready to start our shooting day when I got word that there was a family with a special needs young man named RYAN who was hoping to meet me. They understood that they travelled in unannounced but they were willing to wait all day until I wrapped to meet. That would've 12hrs. Way too long".

"So I asked production to hold and walked across the beach to the barriers where they were waiting," the actor wrote on his social media.

In a heartwarming note, Dawayne expressed his gratitude towards the loving family and congratulated Ryan, the young fan, for the amazing strength and strong heart he has got.

"Thank you, thank you. I met Ryan, his brother and his nurse. What a great and cool kid. Without getting into the details, this kid has waaaaaay more heart, is stronger and tougher than I could ever imagine. He can't talk much, but he did tell me, "I love you" in sign language. I thanked him so much for that love," the actor asserted.
