The Cobram Courier - - NEWS - By Jenna Bishop

In­ter­na­tional movie star Spencer Wild­ing will hit Co­bram later next month to meet with and in­spire stu­dents at Co­bram Sec­ondary Col­lege.

Cur­rently en­joy­ing a wave of fame af­ter por­tray­ing Darth Vader in the hit 2016 Star Wars film Rogue One, Wild­ing has also ap­peared in a num­ber of other high pro­file se­ries and films, in­clud­ing Guardians of the Gal­axy, Game of Thrones, Doc­tor Who, Harry Pot­ter and Wrath of the Ti­tans.

Stu­dents were in­formed of the Hol­ly­wood vis­i­tor at an as­sem­bly on Mon­day, with the ac­tor record­ing a spe­cial mes­sage to be played.

The visit was prompted by a friend and cur­rent school staff mem­ber Anne-Marie, Wild­ing said.

‘‘She asked me if I’d come over and visit Aus­tralia and our school in Co­bram, and I said why not?’’ he said.

‘‘I’d never been to Aus­tralia be­fore and I’d love to come over there and visit all you guys in school — I’m re­ally ex­cited to come and see you soon.’’

Welsh ac­tor and spe­cial crea­ture per­former Wild­ing will visit Co­bram from July 26 to 28, meet­ing with stu­dents, speak­ing to Boost and Il­lu­mi­nate pro­gram stu­dents, as well as spend­ing time with drama classes, the Ad­vance class, Q&A ses­sions and at­tend­ing a spe­cial ball on the Fri­day night.

May the Force be with you: Ac­tor Spencer Wild­ing, who played Darth Vader in Rogue One, will visit Co­bram next month.
