Even though he had burned up the London stage for nearly a decade–and appeared in several films–Michael Sheen was not really “discovered” by American audiences until his critically acclaimed turn as “Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart” in the 1999 Broadway revival of “Amadeus”.

The only son of Meyrick and Irene Sheen, the charming, curly-haired actor grew up a middle-class boy in the working-class town of Port Talbot, Wales. Although his parents worked in personnel, they shared with their two children a deep appreciation for acting, with Meyrick Sheen enjoying some success later in life as a Jack Nicholson impersonator.
