Welsh film icon Richard Burton is to be given a posthumous place on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
The accolade comes almost three decades after his death, with the ceremony taking place on St David's Day.
"I'm delighted with the news, particularly for the family" says Aberavon MP Dr Hywel Francis.
"The family have long felt that Richard ought to have this recognition, and in a way Hollywood is catching Wales up"
"He was a remarkable performer".
