Mandy Patinkin shared a deeply personal story about his role in The Princess Bride in an emotional TikTok Tuesday (Aug. 24th).
TikTok user Amanda Webb had posted a video asking if it was true that his character Inigo Montoya’s line, “I want my father back, you son of a bitch” was delivered while Patinkin was thinking of his own dad who had passed from cancer. Webb, whose own father had just lost his battle with the disease, is a big fan of the film and the line had become meaningful to her.
The actor dueted her original post and revealed, “It is true — 100 percent true. I went outside in this castle and walked around. And I kept talking to my dad and I said, 'Dad, I'm going to get this guy.'”
