London: Charlie Sheen ended his first show in Toronto, Canada by toasting to the ashes of a fan’s deceased husband.

During the actor’s ‘My Violent Torpedo of Truth’ show, Sheen called out to the audience for a woman whose husband had died two years ago to come onstage. Sheen said he read about her in a newspaper article, reports the Telegraph.

The otherwise noisy audience in Toronto’s Massey Hall fell silent as Wendy Newman took to the stage, clad all in black and carrying a vessel.

Newman told the show-goers that her husband died of a heart attack and the only way she got through her difficult period was by watching DVDs of Sheen’s former sitcom ‘Two and A Half Men’.

When she learned the celebrity was coming to her home city, she snapped up tickets. She then posted a message on Sheen’s Facebook page asking if she could bring her husband’s ashes to the show and have Sheen raise a glass in honour of her husband of 19 years. And he did.

"I think I can now send you off, Charlie Sheen is here now," said Newman after she gave a brief eulogy of her husband.
