Michael Sheen’s touching birthday message to 90-year-old fan
When an American Twitter user posted a message detailing how his father loved Dylan Thomas and how his new favourite thing was Michael Sheen reciting Do Not Go Gentle In That Good Night, he probably didn’t expect what happened next.
Copying the actor in on the post, the Welsh star – sporting a new blonde haircut thanks to his filming Good Omens, in which he stars as Aziraphale – was obviously moved by the message and quickly replied sending a lovely birthday wish to the elderly fan.
The actor said: “I could try reading Dylan Thomas’ ‘Poem In October’ which was about his 30th birthday. I could try reading that three times to wish your dad a happy 90th birthday, but that would take far too long. So I’ll just say a very happy birthday to you.”

The birthday wish obviously did the trick…
