Wilson has first introduced to the movie "3 1⁄2 years ago," thanks to the scholarship program she actively supported at Sydney's Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP). Recalling how it happened, the media personality explained:

"Basically, one young person wins it, and then I mentor them for a year, and as part of it, they have to pitch a show and write the show and hopefully finish it by the end of the year."
