William Thomas shoots the role of Eli Jenkins in the new cinematic adaptation of Under Milk Wood, directed by Kevin Allen.
Set in the fictional Welsh seaside town of Llareggub, the film will be shot on the west coast of Wales and two versions made simultaneously – one in English and another in Welsh.
The production, partly backed by Welsh broadcaster S4C, will be released around the same time as a documentary about the poet presented by Rhys Ifans, who will play First Voice.Overview
