Ryan Gosling helps raise money for deaf school

RYAN Gosling made a surprise appearance at a charity event at the Texas School for the Deaf last weekend.

The 'Drive' actor took a break from filming his latest movie in Austin, Texas, on Saturday (27.10.12) to stun pupils and teachers at the school and he also brought along co-stars Michael Fassbender and Rooney Mara.

Anne Adams, executive director of the school's foundation, told the Washington Post newspaper: "We knew that Ryan was in town, and he's been on streets around campus often so we were just pipe dreaming (and look what happened!)."

The famous trio attended the Spooky Skedaddle 5K, the organisation's annual charity run, and they helped raise around $20,000 with their support.

Ryan, 31, impressed everyone with his friendliness and was happily posing for photos.

Anne added to E!: "Ryan was extremely kind, allowing lots of photo ops with fans and when the director told him, 'Enough,' he said, 'No, one more,' and pulled a small deaf child out of the line for a picture. Ryan is a wonderful person and we were delighted that they came!"
