Wesley Nelson, from Gwaelod y Garth, was born in June 1996.

He starred in the 2004 television drama May 33rd and went on to appear in a number of small screen favourites including Casualty, Doctors and five episodes as Alfie Gough in ITV's Where The Heart Is.

In 2009 he starred in Samuel Adamson's new play Mrs Affleck at the National Theatre, London. Nelson played the role of Oliver in the play, which took inspiration from Henrik Ibsen's Little Eyolf.

2010 promises to be a bright year for the young actor. He appears as a young Ian in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, the feature film on the life of punk rock star Ian Dury that was released in January.

He will also star as Sacha in the production of Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, by Tom Stoppard and André Previn, at the National Theatre in January and February.
