Ryan Reynolds surprises students with unannounced visit to Canadian campus
“It was an honour. It was a pleasure. I hope I didn’t ruin your entire project," said the Canadian "Deadpool" star.
Ryan Reynolds made the day of a lucky group of Canadian college students.
On Wednesday afternoon, the "Deadpool" star, 46, surprised a class of broadcast journalism students with an unannounced visit to Seneca College in Toronto, Ont. Reynolds later took to Twitter with a photo from his Canadian campus appearance.
"Thank you for the tour, @SenecaCollege. Wish something like this existed when I was starting out. #SenecaProud," he tweeted.

Seneca College also commemorated Reynolds's visit with a post on social media, leaving an open invitation to return to the campus anytime.
"We had a very special guest on campus today," the Instagram caption reads. "@vancityreynolds toured our facilities and caused a lot of excitement for those on campus. He generously posed for photos and videos, while complimenting the Faculty of Communication Art & Design facilities and programs. You are welcome again anytime, Ryan."
A clip of the actor showing off his news anchor skills by flawlessly reading off of a teleprompter surfaced on Twitter and was quickly met with praise from fans.
“Probably need to get that prompter moving a little faster next time,” Reynolds jokes in the recording. “That’s my fault, not yours.”
“It was an honour. It was a pleasure. I hope I didn’t ruin your entire project," he added.
True story: two journalism students at Seneca College in Toronto on Wednesday were honing their craft in studio. Ryan Reynolds, who was getting a tour of the school at the time, not only dropped by to say hello, but contributed to the broadcast. This guy’s amazing. pic.twitter.com/2yQIRkPijl

"@VancityReynolds for Prime Minister? The guy would be a shoo-in on charisma alone. Amazing human being and ambassador for Canada," a fan replied.
"That's awesome! Something those students will never forget!" another added.
One person penned: "He's a great guy. Embodies the very best in our country."
"He is one of our best humans," someone else quipped alongside a Canadian flag emoji.
In November, Reynolds revealed his plan to have majority ownership of the Canadian NHL team, the Ottawa Senators.
The Ottawa Sun reported a key part of Reynolds' plan is to bring a reality-style documentary series — similar to the popular Disney+ show "Welcome to Wrexham" — to the capital.
"One of the things [Reynolds] wants to do is get his production company, Los Angeles-based Maximum Effort, involved and what they would do is a 'Welcome to Wrexham'-type series with the Ottawa Senators — a reality show that follows the Senators around through the course of the season, " a source revealed to "TSN" at the time.
