Michael Sheen turns himself into a ‘not-for-profit’ actor

Actor and activist Michael Sheen has pledged to give the majority of his future acting earnings to fund future projects and charities and to promote social causes.

He said: “I’ve essentially turned myself into a social enterprise, a not-for-profit actor.”

“I’m at a stage of my life and career where I have a window of opportunity that will probably never be this good again. I’m able to get people in a room, I can open doors. I don’t want to look back and think, I could have done something with that platform.”

‘The Good Omens’ and ‘Damned United’ star is already a patron for various charities and has previously sold houses he owned to give the proceeds to charity, including the Homeless World Cup.

He said: “There was something quite liberating about going, all right, I’ll put large amounts of money into this or that, because I’ll be able to earn it back again.”
