The Welsh actor Richard Burton is to star alongside Elizabeth Taylor on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Despite being so well-known the late actor has not been nominated for the honour until now.

The Welsh actor's star will be placed on Hollywood Boulevard on 1 March, St David's Day.

In 1962 he told BBC Wales' Emrys Walters who had the greatest professional influence on him.
