Michael Sheen was honored with Best Actor trophy at the BAFTA Cymru awards which is Welsh version of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards. He won the prize for his role in 2012's "The Gospel of Us". The ceremony was held at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay on Sunday, September 29.

"It was a huge surprise, I have to say, I wasn't expecting it at all," Sheen said after he received the prize, as quoted by BBC. "It's a great honor and a great honor to be recognized as part of that project - the film, and the live event and everything that's come from it. It's such a privilege to be a part of it and this really is for the people of Port Talbot," he added.

"The Gospel of Us" is a Welsh movie which is based on three-day "Passion" play which Sheen performed in his hometown of Port Talbot in 2011. The scenes were filmed on the streets in the town.

Sheen now can be seen on new Showtime series "Masters of Sex". He plays Dr. William Masters, a researcher who is interested in studying human sexuality. Actress Lizzy Caplan plays his fellow researcher, Virginia Johnson. "Masters of Sex" premiered on September 29.
