Michael Sheen has revealed that working on Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue was 'a dream come true'.
The Frost/Nixon star lent his voice to the animation movie as he took on the character of Dr. Griffiths and he enjoyed his time working on the project.
Speaking to the Press Association the actor said: "There's only one place to fly when you've got pixie dust on you and that's over Victorian London's rooftops, of course. I get to do that in this.
"I get to change the time on Big Ben - it's a dream come true."
And the actor admitted that one of the big reasons that he took the movie on was because of his twelve year old daughter Lily.
"It's part of the whole Peter Pan story that I grew up with. I have a 12-year-old daughter and fairies have played a really important part in her life growing up," he explained.
"I've seen how much that means to her, and now I have a little niece as well and she loves these Tinker Bell films. I know how many children will watch it and get pleasure from it so it was a real privilege to be a part of it."
It's already been a great year for the actor as he lent his voice to the billion dollar barrier breaking movie Alice In Wonderland earlier this year and is set to star in the highly anticipated sci-fi movie Tron Legacy.
He has completed work on Jesus Henry Christ and Midnight In Paris and is all set to reprise the role of Aro in the final instalment of the Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn.
