Michael Christopher Sheen OBE (born 5 February 1969) is a Welsh actor and political activist. After training at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), he worked mainly in theatre throughout the 1990s and made notable stage appearances in Romeo and Juliet (1992), Don’t Fool With Love (1993), Peer Gynt (1994), The Seagull (1995), The Homecoming (1997), and Henry V (1997). His performances in Amadeus at the Old Vic and Look Back in Anger at the National Theatre were nominated for Olivier Awards in 1998 and 1999, respectively. In 2003, he was nominated for a third Olivier Award for his performance in Caligula at the Donmar Warehouse.

Sheen’s breakthrough role was as British politician Tony Blair in 2003’s The Deal. The Channel 4 film explored the so-called Granita pact made by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown prior to the 1994 Labour Party leadership election, and was the actor’s first collaboration with screenwriter Peter Morgan. Director Stephen Frears cast him because “he was in Mary Reilly and I knew he was brilliant.” Filmed while he was playing Caligula nightly on stage, Sheen has remarked, “It’s interesting that in searching for monsters to play, you often end up playing leaders.” The Daily Telegraph praised his “earnest, yet steely, portrayal” while The Guardian found him “excellent. This is intelligent and honest casting.” In 2004, Sheen starred in ITV’s Dirty Filthy Love, a comic film about a man dealing with OCD and Tourette’s after a marital separation. Sheen spoke of “treading a fine line” because “a lot of the symptoms are intrinsically comical”. He was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Television Actor and a RTS Best Actor Award. Also in 2004, Sheen played a pompous rock star in the romantic comedy Laws of Attraction and produced and starred in The Banker, which won a BAFTA Award for Best Short Film. In 2005, Sheen starred in the National Theatre’s production of The UN Inspector, a David Farr adaptation of The Government Inspector. The Times wrote of “a scathingly brilliant and inventive performance” while Variety noted that the actor “adds comic finesse to his apparently ceaseless repertoire”. The Evening Standard, while conceding that the performance was “technically brilliant”, expressed bemusement as to why “one of the most mercurial and inspiring actors we have seems set on impersonating Rik Mayall throughout”. Also that year, he took part in the Old Vic’s 24 Hour Play, in which The Daily Telegraph felt he “dazzled”. In 2005 film work, Sheen starred in Dead Long Enough, a small-budget Welsh/Irish film, with his longtime friend, Jason Hughes. In addition, he had a supporting role in Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, made a cameo appearance in The League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse and starred in the short film The Open Doors.

Family: Parents, Children & Relatives

His parents, Irene Thomas and Meyrick Sheen, both worked as actors. He had a daughter named Lily with actress Kate Beckinsale, whom he was in a long term relationship with. He also dated actresses Rachel McAdams and Sarah Silverman. In 2019, he began dating Anna Lundberg. He has not shared enough information about family details. However, our team currently working, we will update Family, Sibling, Spouse and Childrens information.

Sheen was raised in a theatrical family, his parents both being involved in local amateur operatics and musicals and, later in life, his father worked as a part-time professional Jack Nicholson lookalike. In his teenage years, Sheen was involved with the West Glamorgan Youth Theatre and, later, the National Youth Theatre of Wales. “It was a brilliant youth theatre”, Sheen has said, “and it taught me not only a lot about acting, but also about work ethic; it was very disciplined.” He was influenced by the performances of Laurence Olivier and the writings of theatre critic Kenneth Tynan, saying “the combination of those two things kind of blew my head off.” Sheen was educated at Blaenbaglan Primary School, Glan Afan Comprehensive School and, finally, Neath Port Talbot College where he sat A-levels in English, Drama and Sociology. He considered studying English at university but instead decided to attend drama school. He moved to London in 1988 to train as an actor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), having spent the previous year working in a Welsh fast-food restaurant called Burger Master to earn money. Sheen was granted the Laurence Olivier Bursary by the Society of London Theatre in his second year at RADA. He graduated in 1991 with a BA in Acting.

At this point in his career, Sheen began to devote more time to film work. Heartlands, a little-seen 2002 film about a naive man’s road trip in the Midlands, was his first leading film role. While The Guardian dismissed the “cloying bittersweet-regional-lottery-Britfilm”, it noted that “Sheen himself has a childlike, Frank Spencer-ish charm”. “It was great to do something that was so different”, Sheen has said of the role. “I usually play very extreme characters.” Also in 2002, he had a minor role in the action-adventure film The Four Feathers. In 2003, Sheen appeared in Bright Young Things, the directorial debut of his Wilde co-star, Stephen Fry. An adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s novel, the film followed high society partygoers in decadent, pre-war London. Sheen played a gay aristocrat in an ensemble cast which included James McAvoy, Emily Mortimer, David Tennant, Dan Aykroyd, Jim Broadbent and Peter O’Toole. While the Los Angeles Times said he “shone”, The Guardian felt the role “drastically under-uses his talents”. Sheen described his character as “possibly the campest man in cinema history” and relished a scene “where I do drugs with [a then 95-year-old] Sir John Mills.” In other 2003 film work, Sheen portrayed the werewolf leader Lucian in Underworld and made a brief appearance in the sci-fi film Timeline.

Sheen worked predominantly in theatre in the 1990s and has since remarked that he will always feel “slightly more at home” on stage. “It’s more of an actor’s medium. You are your own editor, nobody else is choosing what is being seen of you.” His first professional role, while still in his third and final year at RADA, was in When She Danced at the Globe Theatre in 1991. He later described the role as “a big break. One day, I was at RADA doing a movement class, the next I was at a read-through with Vanessa Redgrave and Frances de la Tour.” Milton Shulman of the Evening Standard praised an “excellent” performance while The Observer wrote of “a notable West End debut”. In 1992, Sheen’s performance in Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Exchange received a MEN Theatre Award nomination and led theatre critic Michael Coveney to declare him “the most exciting young actor of his generation … a volatile, electrifying and technically fearless performer”. His 1993 turn as Perdican in Alfred de Musset’s Don’t Fool With Love at the Donmar Warehouse was nominated for the Ian Charleson Award. and was described by The Independent as “quite thrilling”. Also in 1993, Sheen appeared in the world premiere of Harold Pinter’s Moonlight at the Almeida Theatre and made his television debut in the 1993 BBC mini-series Gallowglass.
