He's Welsh in the tradition of Anthony Hopkins and Richard Burton: fiery, unpredictable." A keen footballer, Sheen was scouted and offered a place on Arsenal's youth team at the age of 12, but his family was unwilling to relocate to London. He said he was "grateful" for his parents' decision, as the chances of forging a professional football career were "so slim".
