Elijah Wood and Celyn Jones on Set Fire to the Stars

Video | 15 Dec 2014

We talk to Elijah Wood and Celyn Jones about their Dylan Thomas biopic Set Fire to the Stars, the historical figures they'd most like to play, and their reasons for getting involved in the film.

Set Fire to the Stars is director Andy Goddard’s unconventional portrait of Dylan Thomas, set in the winter of 1950 when the Welsh poet (Jones) was brought to the USA by John Malcolm Brinnin (Wood) for a disastrous reading tour, with north Wales standing in for New England.

We sat down with Jones and Lord of the Rings star Wood at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, ahead of the film's world premiere this summer.
