Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham is making his acting debut, & the role suits him perfectly.

Matthew Mitcham is heading to the stage.

The diving legend, who became the first out gay Olympian to win a gold medal during the 2008 Summer Games, will make his U.K. acting debut later this year.

And the show looks like a perfect match.

Mitcham will play two roles in a revival of Strangers in Between, the Australian classic that depicts the highs and lows of growing up gay in rural Australia.

The 35-year-old may be an international celebrity now, but his rise to the top wasn’t linear. The all-time great athlete, and native Aussie, experienced many trials and tribulations, even as he reached the apex of his sport.
