Photos Of Sean Astin Cuddling With An Otter Go Viral, Inspire Twitter To Celebrate His Career

Written by adminanimalfreedom

Twitter works in mysterious ways. But every once in a while it gives people precisely what they need. And this weekend it turned out to be a few pictures of Sean Astin cuddling with an otter. Everything began when Sam (@samxgrace) from New Zealand tweeted them to her followers, and things quickly went crazy, resulting in people appreciating Sean’s acting career.

“I found the photo on Facebook!” Sam told Bored Panda. “It was posted by the organisation Nurtured by Nature which does swim with otters experiences. I reposted the photos [on Twitter], honestly, because I love otters! I thought the photos were so sweet especially the kissing one and I just wanted to share them to my followers. I never imagined that it would cause the chaos it did. I woke up to about 8,000 likes on Friday morning and by the end of the day it had about 60,000 and Sean Astin himself had tweeted me that I rock!”

Sam adored both Stranger Things and Astin’s involvement in the series. “I’ve always loved horror based programs and movies that have kids as the main characters. It’s almost twisted but in a great way,” she said. However, like most, Sam likes Astin’s other characters as well. “[He’s] is an incredible actor, I first saw him in Lord of the Rings, as a kiwi it’s basically a right of passage to watch that series growing up. But I also adored him in Stranger Things and of course, as Ed in his new series on Netflix, No Good Nick. He always makes his characters the most lovable on every show he’s on!”
