The "Boy from Oz" Hugh Jackman and Australia's national carrier Qantas have announced a new partnership to promote Australia and Australians on the global stage.
The award winning actor has signed on to become our official ambassador and will also work with Qantas on a number of community based initiatives to help Australians through a number of soon-to-be-announced projects.
The international superstar is one of Australia's most successful and highly regarded performers with a career spanning 30 years from his early days in "Correlli" right after his graduation from Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, to his recent stage and screen successes including the X-Men films, The Boy from Oz stage show, the film version of Les Misérables and the soon to be released fantasy film Pan.
Jackman said he is proud to become a Qantas Ambassador and is looking forward to teaming up with Qantas to highlight the best of Australia.
Qantas has also recently been announced as a co-sponsor of Jackman's upcoming Broadway To Oz arena shows across Australia in November and December.
