Welsh actor Michael Sheen won a top acting trophy at his home country’s version of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards on Sunday.
The Frost/Nixon star picked up the best actor prize at the BAFTA Cymru ceremony in Cardiff for his role in The Passion, which he filmed on the streets in his hometown of Port Talbot.
Gavin & Stacey star Ruth Jones missed out on the best actress award, which was presented to Sara Lloyd Gregory for her role in Welsh language drama Alys. However, Jones went home with the best writer prize for her show Stella.
Welsh producer Julie Gardner, who has helmed Doctor Who, took away the Sian Phillips award for producing. The ceremony also marked the 50th anniversary of the sci-fi show, which is filmed in Cardiff, with a montage of clips.
