Sheen's nerves about stage return

Michael Sheen says he still gets stage fright

Michael Sheen is hoping he won't get stage fright when he returns to the stage for theatre work in the UK next year.

The Tron actor said: "I get nervous about everything, I get nervous before every take on a film because I think that's a good thing, but hopefully not enough to stop me from doing my best."

At the end of 2011, the 41-year-old will perform Hamlet at the Young Vic Theatre but before that he'll return to a stage that's a little closer to his old home in Wales.

"The beginning of the year I'm doing the Passion Play in Port Talbot my home town, that'll be the first big thing," he explained.

"I'll begin the year and end the year doing incredibly ambitious theatrical projects which I'm very excited about," he confessed, adding: "It just sort of worked out that way really, it was never a plan but I'm looking forward to it."
