St George Illawarra Dragons centre Dylan Farrell took time off the footy field to meet-up with Toothless the Dragon at Bondi Beach on Wednesday.
Toothless the Dragon stars in the upcoming film ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ and arrived to meet the Culburra Dolphins junior and local media fresh from the glitz and glamour of Cannes Movie Festival.
Farrell was joined by several life savers from the Bondi Surf Club to welcome Toothless as they explored the Bondi Pavillion as well as Australia’s most iconic beach.
“It was a unique opportunity to be able to meet the character Toothless,” said Farrell.
“My kids have watched his adventures in the first ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ film and he gave me some spoilers on what to expect from the upcoming sequel.”
