The Bay Studios are now the biggest indoor studios in Europe and are estimated to have created 200 new jobs in the local area since its opening in 2012.

The new series of Da Vinci's Demons has also created opportunities for students and graduates who have been drafted in to help with costume and set design.

Everyone in the surrounding area has been so supportive and generous and helpful from the councils to the government to the local crew.

You know we have construction workers who we tend to only meet at the wrap party who work all through the night building these giant sets. So what's been fantastic about being in Wales is the people.
