Michael Sheen won @Bafta Cymru awards
BBC Michael Sheen is celebrating winning best actor at the Bafta Cymru awards for his role in the film version of a modern day passion play.
Sheen was honoured for The Gospel of Us, which followed his role in National Theatre Wales' The Passion, a three-day open air play set in his home town of Port Talbot in 2011.
He dedicated his award to "the people of Port Talbot".
The ceremony took place at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
Hollywood star Sheen took a break from his latest role in the film adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 19th Century classic Far From the Madding Crowd to accept the best actor accolade at the event on Sunday night.
It is the latest honour for the star of high-profile movies such as Frost/Nixon, The Damned United and The Queen.
He said after his win: "It was a huge surprise, I have to say, I wasn't expecting it at all.
"It's a great honour and a great honour to be recognised as part of that project - the film, and the live event and everything that's come from it. It's such a privilege to be a part of it and this really is for the people of Port Talbot."
