Actors Matthew Rhys and Michael Sheen have welcomed news that Pinewood Studios is to create a new studio in Cardiff.
This is more good news for Wales, and recognition of our place on the world stage as a destination for film and television drama production. Pinewood is a massive name in film and it’s great that more of the many talented people in Wales will now have a chance to ply their trade at home. Having a studio like this on their doorstep will also inspire a new generation of actors and film makers from Wales.
This appears to be great news for Wales and a logical next step building upon the huge success of the revitalised Welsh entertainment industry. It's always a precarious business to attempt such a large undertaking, but it points to the confidence, the expertise and the creative spirit of the people of Wales and I hope it can help the country come closer to realising its hopes for the future.
