Ryan Reynolds’ co-ownership of Wrexham Association Football Club continues to improve people’s lives.
According to the BBC, the Deadpool actor met with Wrexham fan Jay Fear, 45, who has terminal appendix cαncer and wanted to see Reynolds as his dy*ng wish.
“It was an honor to meet Jay. “I wonder if I’d have the same unwavering joy if our roles were reversed,” Reynolds said following the 20-minute visit, during which Fear and his family discussed Deadpool and their shared love of the Wrexham soccer team.
“He is an exceptional person, and his family is wonderful,” the 46-year-old actor said of meeting Fear at Wrexham’s Racecourse Stadium, where the team co-owned by Reynolds and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney won promotion to the English Football League for the first time in more than a decade.
“I got a little choked up talking to him and feeling how much his kids and wife are going to miss him,” Reynolds said, clearly moved.
During the meeting, the actor-turned-entrepreneur invited Fear to the London set of Deadpool 3.
“They always say you should never meet your idol, and this guy is definitely an exception to that,” Fear said on BBC 5 Live’s Sunday Breakfast. “He made me feel welcome and spent time with his wife and kids as well.”
“People might think this whole thing was set up for me,” he told. “Actually, this is for [my family] because they will remember what happened for the rest of their lives.”

Reynolds and McElhenney, both 45, purchased the team in 2021. Despite its location in Wales, Wrexham plays in the English Premier League. Following winning promotion on Saturday, the club will compete in League Two, England’s fourth and lowest professional soccer tier.
Wrexham had previously played in the National League, England’s fifth flight. Despite being the world’s third oldest professional soccer team (established in 1864), the club has not competed in the top four English soccer leagues since 2008.
