From Wales To Hollywood: Famous Welsh Celebs

Wales has a lot to offer, such as fantastic Welsh beers, seaweed bread, and the famous Rhossili Bay beach which was once voted the third best beach in Europe. It is also home to one of the largest castles in the UK: Caerphilly castle.

The Welsh cult film Twin Town was also filmed in Wales.

Aside from these local delicacies and popular attractions, Wales boasts raising some of the fashion & entertainment industry’s top talent.

More specifically, we’re talking about Catherine Zeta-Jones and Julien MacDonald: both who come from Wales.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

Her life changed overnight when she acted in the period comedy drama titled The Darling Buds of May.

In a few words, the show is about a family enjoying the country life, set in a rural village in the 1950s.

Being a hyperactive child, she was enrolled at Hazel Johnson’s School of Dance at the age of four.

Catherine took part in school stage shows.

It’s fair to say that her acting career took off on stage.

She was also part of a dance troupe which allowed her to travel to London to take part in auditions for theater roles.

She played one of the orphans in Annie in London’s West End.

In her hometown Swansea, she played Annie at the Swansea Grand Theatre.

Her appearance in The Mask of Zorro helped launch her movie career.

Catherine went from being the girl from West Glamorgan in Wales to a Hollywood superstar.

The Forbidden City.

Based on a true life story, she plays Griselda Blanco: a drug trafficker suspected of killing at least 200 people by moving cocaine from Colombia to the U.S.

This isn’t the first time she’s played such a role.

In the movie Traffic, an American crime film, Zeta-Jones played Helena: the pregnant wife of Ayala who’s involved in a drug cartel.

She ‘s a recipient of many awards, ranging from an Oscar, BAFTA, Blockbuster Entertainment Award and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award.
