In 2013, Wade joined the Starlight Children’s foundation to help sick children affected by chronic illness and make them smile. A project that means a lot to him and that is very close to his heart because there is nothing better than making a child smile esp one that is sick.
“When I’m not working as an actor, I like to try and keep creating in different ways. I work for the Starlight Children’s Foundation when I can – as Captain Starlight. Basically my job is to help distract and entertain kids while they are in hospital – to try and help make their experience a little less overwhelming. I get to spend my days face painting and playing games and doing arts & crafts. I adore kids – I always have. I generally get along better with people under the age of 16. We have similar interests and attention spans.” – Who Asked You? (June 2017)
