In August 2015, Domenic, age nine, who has cystic fibrosis, guested on Australia’s Kyle & Jackie O Show with KIIS FM hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O’Henderson, where he was asked if he wanted to talk on the telephone with Hugh Jackman, who plays the comic book character Wolverine in the movies. Domenic replied, “That would be awesome!” Jackie said on the telephone, “Hey, Hugh, we’ve got Domenic here, who is one of your biggest fans. He’s a young boy who thinks Wolverine is just awesome and that you’re great.” Domenic said, “Hi, Hugh Jackman.” Hugh replied, “You can call me Hugh. You don’t have to call me by my full name.” Domenic asked Hugh what was his favorite Wolverine pose from the movies. Hugh replied, “Hang on one sec, I’m going to find a really cool way to show you.’ He was actually just outside the studio, and he came inside and showed Domenic the pose: teeth bared and fists clenched. Hugh hugged Domenic and said, “You are awesome. It’s so great to meet you. I’ve met a lot of fans over the years — you’re one of my favorites.” The Make-a-Wish Foundation made their meeting possible.
