Wilson revealed she would be matching donations of up for $1 million for the theater, "named after me," in a video announcement shared to ATYP's YouTube account back in September 2021.

"This company has been such an important part of my journey," said the Australian actress. "It was a launching pad into the entertainment industry."

"So this is my gift to the Australian young people — to future generations. That's why I'm on board," Wilson continued. "I'm matching $1 million."

"Every dollar you give, I'll match, until we can reach our goals and open the doors," she added. "This is gonna be incredible for so many young Australians."

Wilson will be tapping into her own teenage years soon in the Netflix high-school comedy Senior Year, which drops May 13 on the streaming platform.

In the film, Wilson plays a woman who wakes up from a 20-year-long coma that she fell into during a cheerleading accident her senior year. Poised to be crowned prom queen, she didn't get to finish out her high-school experience and get her moment — so she decides to head back to class, even if times have changed without her.
