Can I just say that I am more and more impressed with Michael Sheen as I continue to read about him? He just seems like such a nice guy! Michael is currently encouraging the government in the UK to fund more drama programs for young actors. He contributes part of his success to the education he received at a drama school in Wales and would like other young people to have the same options. The institution he attended lacks the funds to properly run their drama program.
“It is not being funded as it once was and there’s no drama at my old school any more. I am very saddened that the way I came up and the reason I got into acting has now gone. If I were the age now that I was when I first got into theatre I simply would not be an actor because the route I took does not exist any more. There is one reason for that: funding.”
