“I’d heard about the great work of Demelza so couldn’t wait to visit and help make some dreams come true. I was blown away by the children and the nurses who do such a fantastic job of caring for them,” the Finn actor said.
The actor is currently filming Star Wars: Rogue One and recently secured a role in the upcoming Pacific Rim 2, but took time out of his busy schedule to visit the hospice.
Demelza’s Care Coordinator Fiona Ashmore said: “We’re so grateful to John for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Demelza.”
