Ron Perlman becomes Hellboy again for a Good CausePosted 11:02 pm on Friday, July 6th, 2012 by Michael Pao
It’s stories like this that makes this somewhat jaded writer crack a smile. A well known special effects company by the name of Spectral Motion (Hellboy and X-Men) has helped make two Make-A-Wish children’s wishes come true. Zachary who was one of these children had wanted to meet and become Hellboy. When actor Ron Perlman heard about this request he couldn’t refuse and donned the right fist of doom once again.
Spectral Motion had this to say;
In the past three weeks, Spectral Motion has been honored to host two wonderful Make-A-Wish children, Caleb and Zachary. Zachary loved his visit for two very special reasons. It was Zachary’s wish to meet Hellboy and also to become Hellboy. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman reprise his role for the day. Ron loved the idea and donned the makeup once more (with the assistance of Lufeng Qu and Eden Elizalde) and also ordered a Hellboy sized meal of burgers, shakes, and fries for Zachary and his family and the entire Spectral crew to enjoy. Later in the day, Zachary was transformed into Hellboy with the assistance of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn. Both of the Make-A-Wish days were a complete thrill for the families of the children, as well as for the crew at Spectral Motion!
