New York (ANI): Michael Sheen says his daughter has never been excited by his on-screen roles, but his Twilight: New Moon character is has intrigued her finally. The 40-year old Welsh actor admits it is the first time his 10-year-old girl, Lily, is eager to watch him play Aro, the leader of an ancient Italian vampire group in the New Moon.
The New York Post quoted him as saying: "Forget about playing Tony Blair. When I told her I was definitely playing vampire Aro in Twilight, she cried. She was so overwhelmed and annoyed that I muscled in on something that was hers. She's already told me she'll be my date for the premiere."
'Frost/Nixon" star Sheen - also famous for playing Blair in The Queen - is now portraying legendary British soccer manager Brian Clough in The Damned United".
