Early life and career

Wager was born in Willesden, north London and grew up in Mill Hill and Hendon. Wager's father was a plumber and decorator.[1] He studied at Christ's College, Finchley. In 1945, Wager auditioned for the role of young 'Pip' in the film Great Expectations. Wager won the role and was praised by critics for his performance. He won a Film Daily Critics Award for Best Performance For a Juvenile for his role in the film.[2]

After appearing in Great Expectations, Wager continued working in films and television in England. He often lived with the director Brian Desmond Hurst.[3] In the late 1960s, Wager moved to Sydney, Australia where he continued his career in both film and television but occasionally returned to England for acting jobs.[4] He made his final onscreen appearance in the 1988 Australian television movie The Boardroom. Wager then moved to Bali, Indonesia for health reasons.
