Vanessa Marshall who plays Hera in the upcoming and much anticipated Star Wars Rebels has told us she is a huge Steven Spielberg fan. Not only that she dedicates a lot of her own time to the Shoah Foundation which Steven Spielberg founded in 1994. The foundation is a non-profit organisation established to record testimonies in video format of survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust.
In a previous event for the foundation, Vanessa live announced Disney chairman, Bob Iger. Well it’s got to be hard to top that. Vanessa emailed us to say:
So I can tell you that I will be live announcing President Barack Obama at an upcoming Shoah Foundation event!
What an event that’s going to be and what an honour! We will of course report on it when it happens.
