AceShowbiz - Rupert Grint and Miriam Margolyes thrilled a Birmingham, England midwife as part of Britain's "One World: Together at Home" special on Sunday night (April 19) by paying her a virtual visit.

The former co-stars, best known for playing Ron Weasley and Professor Sprout in the "Harry Potter" movies, teamed up to surprise super fan Sam Halliwell, who has been working on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic, while self-isolating in a hotel - away from her husband and their nine-year-old daughter.

Calling her "truly inspiring" in a video call, Grint listened as Sam explained that her husband suffers from a severe kidney illness and if he were to contract COVID-19 it would probably end his life.

"Hearing your story is just insane," Rupert said. "The sacrifices that you've made, it's truly inspiring..."

Beloved actress Margolyes joined in on the chat and invited Sam to meet the cast of her favourite TV show "Call the Midwife" when the lockdown in Britain is relaxed and the period drama starts shooting again.

"What a family you are, my goodness," the actress, who plays Mother Mildred on the show, said. "We think you're one of the heroes of the world Sam, we really do. We want you to come to the set and meet all of us. It's a glorious pleasure to do something."

The virtual BBC special also featured performances from Little Mix, Michael Buble,Tom Jones, Rag'n'Bone Man and Jess Glynne, as well as highlights from the "One World: Together at Home" U.S. telethon, which was televised in America on Saturday night.
