Sheen enjoys flying with fairies

Michael Sheen has enjoyed his very own Mary Poppins moment.

The Damned United actor said his role in children's film Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue was "a dream come true".

He said: "There's only one place to fly when you've got pixie dust on you and that's over Victorian London's rooftops, of course. I get to do that in this.

"I get to change the time on Big Ben - it's a dream come true."

The Welsh star admits part of the reason he made the movie was for his daughter Lily, from his marriage to actress Kate Beckinsale.

"It's part of the whole Peter Pan story that I grew up with. I have a 12-year-old daughter and fairies have played a really important part in her life growing up," he explained.

"I've seen how much that means to her, and now I have a little niece as well and she loves these Tinker Bell films."

The 41-year-old added: "I know how many children will watch it and get pleasure from it so it was a real privilege to be a part of it."
