Andre the Giant & Fred Savage

Andre the Giant appeared in the revisionist fairy tale/adventure The Princess Bride (1987). So did Fred Savage, then a kid actor who only a few years ago offered this remembrance on Instagram, “The rest of the movie had already been shot, all that was left were the parts with the boy and his grandpa. It was an all-star cast, but there was only one person this 10 year-old WWF superfan wanted to meet. He made a surprise visit to the set one day and he was gentle and kind and charming and funny and answered every question I had. He sent me a Christmas card every year until he passed away. It was the one I looked forward to the most.”
