Welsh Personalities

Small country, big personality. We like to think so, anyway. Think of Hollywood stars like Michael Sheen, Matthew Rhys, Rhys Ifans and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Influential bands like the Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers and Super Furry Animals, not to mention the venerable Sir Tom Jones and Dame Shirley Bassey. 

Welsh accents pop up all over the media , whether they’re anchoring the news or making us laugh (thank you, Rhod Gilbert, Rob Brydon and Ruth Jones). You don’t need to be famous to have personality, though. We’ve asked some of our favourite characters, celeb or otherwise, to reveal the true character of Wales.
