Mandy Patinkin comforts a fan whose father died of cancer.

There was an emotional exchange on TikTok between two people who lost their father to cancer. One was actor Mandy Patinkin, the other was TikTok user Amanda Webb.

Patinkin currently stars in “The Good Fight,” but one of his most famous roles is Inigo Montoya in the 1987 classic “The Princess Bride.” In the film, Montoya is a swordsman obsessed with confronting a six-fingered man who killed his father.

Webb recently lost her father Dan to mantle cell lymphoma. She had heard a rumor that Patinkin used his father’s death from cancer as motivation in a pivotal scene where he confronts the six-fingered Count Rugen (Christopher Guest) in a duel.

Rugen tells Montoya that he will give him anything he wants after he is defeated by Montoya, who passionately replies, “I want my father back, motherfucker.”

Webb’s father was a big fan of Montoya’s performance in the film, so she contacted TikTok to find out if the rumor was true.

“I saw a rumor on the internet that when Mandy Patinkin said that sentence, he was thinking of his own father who had died of cancer,” Webb said, crying. “And it was a very raw emotion. It’s really stuck with me ever since.”

Patinkin, who is a TikTok user, learned that the woman had contacted him and he responded sincerely.

“First of all, your father takes care of you,” he said. “Second, it’s true, 100% true. I went out in this castle and walked around and I kept talking to my father.”

“The moment I read the script, I knew, I said to” [his wife]I said, ‘I’m going to do this part because in my mind, if I get the man with six fingers, it means I killed the cancer that killed my father and I will visit my father,’ he said. .

“That moment came, and I went and I played that scene with Chris [Guest], and then I went back out and talked to my father,” Patinkin said.

He then told Webb that she has the power to talk to her father as well.

“And so you can talk to your father whenever you want, wherever you want,” he said. “If you could somehow let me know your father’s name, because I pray for everyone I’ve ever known. Now I feel like I know you, and that’s why I know your father, and I will mention his name in my prayers every day, and they make me feel like they are with me wherever I go, and I would like your father to associate with me.”

Webb responded with a video of her being so emotional she can barely speak.
