The sign of a great actor is being unrecognizable in real life from the character you play on television. Nothing could be a purer example of that statement than seeing William H. Macy, famous for playing arguably the worst dad ever Frank Gallagher in Showtime's Shameless, dancing with his real-life daughter before her prom.
The heartwarming photo was posted to Instagram and Twitter by William's wife, actress Felicity Huffman. It was enough to melt even the coldest heart.
She captioned the photo:
The girl tried on her prom dress. The dad took her for a spin.
Hearts melted all over social media.

Parenting done right. Good on you both, and here's hoping she has a great time.— Mr. Fabulist (@SouthernNinja) April 25, 2018

Even the dress was getting some love.
Okay, so maybe a few tears were shed.
