Michael Sheen In The Beginning
Michael Christopher Sheen was born on February 5th, 1969 in Newport, Wales. Michael Sheen is a Welsh actor and political activist. He was raised in a theatrical family, born to Meyrick, a British Steel Corporation personnel manager and Irene, a secretary. A great footballer, Sheen was actually scouted and offered a place on Arsenal's youth team at the age of 12, but considering that his family was unwilling to relocate to London, it didn't happen. He is quoted as saying that he was "grateful" for his parents' decision, as the chances of forging a professional football career were "so slim." In 1988, he moved to London in to train as an actor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), having spent the previous year working in a Welsh fast food restaurant to earn money. Sheen was granted the Laurence Olivier Bursary by The Society of London Theatre in his second year at RADA. He ended up graduating in 1991 with a BA in Acting.
The Enigmatic Michael Sheen
His Biggest Roles In Film & In Theatre
Director Sam Mendes, of American Beauty Fame, has described Sheen as "a stage creature" and attributed that to the actor's Welsh roots: "I'm serious. He's Welsh in the tradition of Anthony Hopkins and Richard Burton: fiery, mercurial, unpredictable." Michael Sheen gave a memorable performance in "Midnight In Paris," which co-starred one of the loves of his life, Rachel McAdams. His performance was extremely solid and it reminded me that Sheen has delivered in great movie roles as Tony Blair in "The Queen" and "Frost/Nixon." He has had massive success in blockbuster films such as "Twilight" and transformed himself to star in the movie "Underworld" with Kate Beckinsale who Michael has a daughter with. Their daughter, Lily Mo Beckinsale-Sheen, was born in 1999 in London, England. He has been nominated for and won awards in both his movie and theatre career including "The Queen," "Frost/Nixon" in film and "Caligula" and "Henry V" in theatre.

Michael Sheen The Political Activist
Michael Sheen is a very smart and talented man and he has used a lot of his mental prowess and power to spend a lot of his life and energy in charity work and as a political activist. He was misquoted at the beginning of the year saying that he was quitting acting to focus on political activism, but he later cleared that up by saying that he was not quitting his acting career. He has many great thoughts regarding the state of the world right now and obviously feels that he can help. The actor is quoted as saying that the rise of far-right populism, both in the United Kingdom and in America has inspired him to fight against "demagogic, fascistic" politics. Sheen, the star of many projects, will return to his hometown of Port Talbot in South Wales, which voted in favor of the Brexit, to begin grassroots organizing.
