Enclave residents later posted a video on Facebook thanking McConaughey.

Back in September, residents directed a Facebook video at the actor, asking for him to stop by for an event.

“Make my dream come true, come and see me,” one resident said in the video.

The Academy Award-winner also recently appeared in a PSA with Austin Mayor Steve Adler for the “Be A Lot Safer If You Did” campaign, which urges people to stay home to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

“No matter how good you feel right now, stay home if you can!” McConaughey said during the PSA. “I’m sorry you’ve got these responsibilities on you at this time, it’s an unprecedented time in all our lives. But face the fact that they’re here. This is a science fiction film no more. It’s reality, man.”
