It’s lights, camera, action in Pembrokeshire again as filming begins this week on the new production of Dylan Thomas’s much loved play for voices, Under Milk Wood. The film is being shot in Solva, with the harbour playing a starring role.
The film stars Welsh and Hollywood actor, Rhys Ifans, who is reunited with his Twin Town director Kevin Allen, brother of comedian Keith Allen and uncle of singer, Lily Allen. Both are staying locally in the village during the filming. It will also feature Welsh singer Charlotte Church, who also starred in the recent tv production of the play, as well as a host of local talent.
Almost 200 people queued at Solva Memorial Hall in May to audition as extras.
Under Milk Wood will be shot in both Welsh and English, with the former being broadcast on S4C at Christmas and the latter sold for worldwide viewing.
Pembrokeshire has played host to a number of film crews in the last few years with blockbusters including Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Snow White and the Huntsman, being filmed on Pembrokeshire’s glorious beaches.
