S9 Ep 23: Michael Sheen

Tuning in from South Wales, this week on Table Manners we welcome superstar screen actor, theatre don and fellow UNICEF ambassador Michael Sheen. 

Sheen talks to us about growing up in Wales, eating his grandmother's famous Cawl and tinned potatoes.

Having become an international star (despite being scouted by Arsenal Football club Youth team as a child!) Sheen tells us about his USA go-to diner recommendations, his obsession with coffee & doughnuts & missing Welsh food whilst living in LA. We also talk about the brilliant work he is doing in Wales to support the arts. And if you haven't watched his BBC 1 lockdown comedy, 'Staged', with David Tennant, do it, it's so good.

Michael and I are proud UNICEF ambassadors and have both visited Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh where the Rohingya people fled after the atrocities they faced in Myanmar. Cox's Bazar now holds the largest refugee camp in the world. On this episode we share our stories and experiences. Thank you for listening & please do what you can to donate to UNICEF's appeal to help the world's most vulnerable children.

Michael, what a pleasure! X
