Sheen at Passion premiere

Hollywood actor Michael Sheen brought a bit of silver screen magic to his hometown Port Talbot last night. The star arrived on the red carpet at a cinema to watch the first screening of The Gospel Of Us, based on the three-day play of the Passion staged in the town last year.

It's my home. It what shaped me and made me who I am. It's what I created and made my dreams. The people here have been so supportive over my life and helped me do everything that I've done. I've always felt me coming back is like re-charging my batteries. But we had no idea how big The Passion was going to be. It was on epic scale, we had no idea how many people would turn up. I think the latest estimation was 15,000 people came to watch it by the end of it.We could never have guessed that it was going to have such an effect.
