Actor Michael Sheen Visits Catz

We were delighted to welcome actor Michal Sheen to Catz on Friday 14 February 2014. He spoke to current students about life as an actor, and fielded questions about his own acting career.

Michael is a Welsh stage and screen actor, perhaps best-known for playing real-life figures such as David Frost in Frost/Nixon (2008) and Tony Blair in The Deal (2003), The Queen (2006), The Special Relationship (2010). He has had an incredibly varied career, and has been nominated for multiple awards including an Olivier, BAFTA, Emmy and Golden Globe.

He trained at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), graduating in 1991 with a BA in Acting, and was awarded the OBE in the 2009 Queen's New Year’s Honours List for his services to Drama.

His most recent role is as Dr William Masters in the hit US drama Masters of Sex (2013), for which he has received a Golden Globe nomination.
