Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds paid tribute to John Candy on the 25th anniversary of his death Sunday.
Reynolds tweeted a two-minute video that included clips of some of Candy’s most celebrated rolls in movies such as Spaceballs, Home Alone, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
“If you haven’t seen much of his work, take a look at his films. He was a treasure,” Reynolds wrote in a tweet with the video.
It’s the 25th anniversary of John Candy’s passing. We cooked up a small tribute to a comedic genius and Canadian hero. If you haven’t seen much of his work, take a look at his films. He was a treasure. Thanks to @chriscandy4u and @therealjencandy. 🇨🇦 pic.twitter.com/dHvuviKnBs

The Canadian Deadpool star compiled the video with help from Candy’s family.
Candy, who was also Canadian, got his start on SCTV before going on to star in many movies, usually in comedic roles, but also some dramatic ones.
He died from a hearth attack in 1994 at the age of 43, when Reynolds would have been just 17 years old.
