Hugh Jackman brilliantly replies to Dublin kid after video of girl singing one of his hits

Hollywood star Hugh Jackman told seven-year-old Irish fan to “never stop dreaming” in response to her mum tweeting a video of the young girl singing one of his hits.

The Greatest Showman actor was left impressed by Dublin schoolgirl Emma Cooney’s rendition of A Million Dreams after her mum, Jacqueline, shared a video of her singing on Twitter.

Emma’s mother reached out to the screen star on social media after the young girl was left disappointed when she failed to get tickets to Jackman’s Greatest Showman concerts, which take place in Dublin in May.

In his response to the Lucan girl’s performance, Hugh said: “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!”


Speaking to RTE Entertainment after Hugh got in touch, mum of three Jacqueline said that Emma has been a big fan of Jackman’s since watching The Greatest Showman.

She said: “We saw the film of The Greatest Showman for the first time in June and then Santy brought Emma the DVD and the singalong CD for Christmas and she loved it.

“Emma has watched the film four times since Christmas and she now knows all the words and is always singing the songs. We have the CD in the car all the time.

“I asked her would she have gone to see Hugh in concert and she said yes but, of course, by then it was too late to get tickets.

“So I said maybe if you do a video of yourself singing one of the Greatest Showman songs and we tweet it Hugh Jackman might see it.”

She added that Emma was delighted when she found out that Hugh had responded.


“She’s quite shy so when I showed her Hugh’s reply she was asking who are all these people looking at my video? Jacqueline said.

“So I said `look, it’s the Greatest Showman’ and after that she was buzzing.”

She continued: “I was expecting maybe a text or something but a video and what he said was so lovely and so genuine.”

Meanwhile, Jackman tricked RTE’s Ryan Tubridy into thinking he had walked out on their radio interview by performing an “Irish goodbye” live on air.

The Australian actor pulled the prank on Tubs during his Radio One show, while the Late Late Show host was quizzing him about his new film, The Frontrunner.

After going completely silent for nearly 20 seconds, convincing Tubridy he had gone, Hugh said down the phone: “That was my Irish goodbye!”.

Tubridy responded: “You’re kidding me. You completely got me. I thought your PR guys just said, ‘he’s got to go, kill it’.”

Emmerdale spoilers: Joe Tate's tragic fate finally revealed - but is he alive?

Emmerdale fans have been left guessing for months whether Joe Tate actually died.

Cain Dingle believes he is responsible for Joe's death after his punch and a nasty fall onto a rock knocked him unconscious.

But Emmerdale viewers saw his fingers move after Graham dumped him in the boot of his car.

This has prompted speculation that Joe may actually still be alive, or that Graham finished him off.

We may get one step closer to the answers on Monday night when Cain drops a big bombshell on Debbie Dingle.

Cain comes out with a shocking bombshell

Tearful Debbie Dingle tells her dad that she can't move on from Joe without knowing what happened to him.

After discovering he was planning lots of birthdays surprises, Debbie reported him as a missing perosn.

Wracked with guilt, Cain finally decides to come clean and reveals that he killed Joe.

Is Joe Tate really dead?

Devastated Debbie  can't believe that her own dad was responsible for her husband-to-be's untimely death.

She rushes out in disgust, fearful of what Cain is really capable of.

While gutted Cain realises his relationship with his daughter will never be the same again.

Furious Cain attacks Moira

There is more heartbreak to come next week when Debbie discovers that Graham and Moira both knew about Joe.

The revelation also has bad implications for Moira when she incurs the wrath of Cain.

She is attacked by her furious husband, who shoves her up against a wall in rage.

*Emmerdale airs tonight on ITV at 7pm
