Trainees welcomed to Michael Sheen shoot

Actor Michael Sheen has been joined by 11 trainees on the Welsh set of his new Netflix film Apostle.

Sheen is filming on location in south Wales for the period drama, which co-stars the Beauty and the Beast actor Dan Stevens.

The trainees were chosen from applicants to the Foot in the Door programme.

It is designed to open up the film industry to young people not already in employment, education or training.

Sheen, the Golden Globe-nominated actor from Port Talbot, said film traineeships were an "important" entry-point to the industry.

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas joined him on set.
