Michael Sheen, The Queen

Special On Location Report from the 2006 Venice Film Festival: Stephen Frears' The Queen, which opens the New York Film Festival, took high honors when it world premiered at the 63rd edition of the world's oldest film festival, winning awards for Helen Mirren's portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II and Peter Morgan's original screenplay. Michael Sheen, though relatively unknown in the US, is the film's other standout as Prime Minister Tony Blair, the man who must convince the Queen to go public with her mourning following Princess Diana's untimely death.
