The Welsh are a proud nation and is seems an interview with Michael Sheen has been spun to get some clickbait by the Telegraph and the BBC. It has made a a lot of people NOT happy.
Before we start, let’s have a listen to his rousing speech to the Welsh football team ahead of the Qatar world cup.
OK, they were a bit rubbish but that’s not Sheen’s fault.
Anyway, here is the Telegraph piece.
And the BBC’s…
This tweeter writes: “Before the next brain genius tweets about Brian Clough or David Frost, here’s what Michael Sheen actually said about non-Welsh actors playing Welshmen, rather than the clickbait headline”
He said: “You know, seeing people playing Welsh characters who are not Welsh, I find, it’s very hard for me to accept that.”
But, the actor added that this view was not “particularly on a point of principle”.
