Huge congratulations to Welsh actors Aneurin Barnard and Iwan Rheon. They won Best Actor in a Musical, and Best Supporting Role in a Musical respectively at yesterday's Olivier Awards.

The two appeared in the new musical Spring Awakening in London last year. It was Aneurin's first big stage role since graduating from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in 2008 and beating four other nominees (including Rowan Atkinson as Fagin in Oliver!) is pretty good going for an actor who's only been working professionally for such a short time.

You might have seen Iwan Rheon in E4's series Misfits, and you can watch him on stage in Wales in May when he'll be working with National Theatre Wales. We'll be catching up with him on the BBC Radio Wales Arts Show then too.
