Welsh actors dominate as Hollywood's Libido Lifeblood for four decades . . .
Is there ever a time when the 'Land of Song' doesn't dominate and control the starring roles of Hollywood?
Ifor Novello, Richard Burton, Anthony Hopkins, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Bale, Siân Phillips, Emlyn Williams, Catherine Zeta Jones -- I'm running out of breath!
And now Ioan Gruffudd's sexy comic book character is 'stretching' across America!

"20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" rode a commanding wave to the top of the North American boxoffice during the weekend, finding a broad-based audience with the help of a family-friendly PG rating."
"The original "Fantastic Four," with a PG-13 rating, opened to $56.1 million in 2005, and its sequel didn't lose any momentum and outgrossed its predecessor with an estimated bow of $57.4 million."
Didn't anyone see Ioan Gruffudd speaking Welsh on the Graham Norton Show a couple months ago?
More on the sexy Welshman later . . .
Here's one for your summer reading list: Professor Peter Stead's "Acting Wales, Stars of Stage & Screen" (2002) University of Wales Press.
