Michael Sheen’s origins story is superb

Michael Sheen’s origins story is superb
Michael Sheen is a great actor who adds value to everything… even, it turns out, his own name. It doesn’t really matter why the Michael Sheen facts Twitter account said Michael Sheen’s real name is Michael Sheen, what matters is the actor saw it and revealed:
“Actually my parents named me Christopher but the nurses had to look after me the first week as my mum wasn’t well and they got my names mixed up on my tag so when I was collected my parents asked for Christopher and the nurses said … we have a Michael? So they went with it.”
Which is amazing. But then it gets even better. Saying his ancestors traditionally named sons Michael, but all the Michael’s died, he finishes with: “They were clearly desperate to have a Michael Sheen but sadly they never managed it. Generations went by in our family and no Michaels emerged and their story was forgotten. Then one day, many, many years later a nurse got a name tag mixed up and unknowingly tricked whatever malevolent force was at work trying to stop a Michael Sheen emerge… So to that nurse, whoever you are, wherever you are, if you’re even still alive, on behalf of my long dead ancestors and their mysterious desire – thank you.”
Which may or may not be true. We hope so
