Viewers from Blaenavon might just recognise some local landmarks, or even themselves.

Dream Horse follows Jan Vokes, from Cefn Fforest, who brought together a syndicate of local people to breed a foal, named Dream Alliance, raising him on an allotment and going on to win the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow Racecourse in 2009.

Filming took place in Blaenavon in May 2019, with many residents taking up the call to appear as extras in the film.

Following the release of the film, a number of residents have shared their memories of being involved in the production. Here are just a few.

Before They Were Famous: Stage Roles – Nov 13, 2020

Damian Lewis in Cymbeline

by Tristram Kenton | The Guardian | November 13, 2020

Cymbeline by William Shakespeare
Damian Lewis as Posthumus Leonatu
Royal Shakespeare Theatre
Venue: Stratford-upon-Avon
1997

Cymbeline, King of Britain when Augustus Caesar was Emperor of Rome, has a daughter, Innogen, and two sons who were stolen in infancy. The queen, his second wife, has a son, Cloten, whom Cymbeline wishes Innogen to marry, but she has secretly married the commoner Posthumus Leonatus who was adopted as an orphan and raised in the Cymbeline family. Cymbeline banishes Posthumus to Rome, where he meets Iachimo, who wagers with him that he can seduce Innogen. Arriving in Britain, Iachimo realizes that she is incorruptible, but, hiding in her bedroom, obtains evidence which convinces Posthumus that he has won the wager. Posthumus orders his servant Pisanio to kill Innogen at Milford Haven, but instead Pisanio advises her to disguise herself as Fidele, a page. In Wales,she meets her brothers, who were stolen twenty years before by the banished nobleman Belarius. Cloten pursues Innogen to Wales in Posthumus’ clothes, determined to rape her and kill Posthumus. Instead, he is killed by one of her brothers, and his decapitated body laid beside Innogen, who has taken a potion that makes her appear dead. When she revives, Innogen/Fidele joins the Roman army, which is invading Britain as a result of Cymbeline’s failure to pay tribute to Rome. Posthumus and the stolen Princes are instrumental in defeating the Roman army. A final scene of explanations leads to private and public reconciliation.

Damian and Helen Attend Registry Office Wedding – Sept 24, 2020

The Wedding Singer

by Rianne Addo | DailyMail | September 24, 2020

Damian Lewis played the guitar alongside wife Helen McCrory at their friends’ wedding on September 24, 2020.

He showcased his musical side as he pulled out a guitar to perform at the wedding, held at Kensington and Chelsea Register Office in London on Thursday.

The Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood star, 49, was joined by his actress wife Helen McCrory, 52, as they celebrated the occasion by singing along to a series of classic Irish tracks. Helen proudly held up the Irish and Celtic lyrics for Damian to follow along.

As ceremonies and receptions in England set to be capped at 15 people from Monday as part of new coronavirus measures to curb a surge in cases. The screen stars’ pals were able to narrowly avoid the new restrictions as they marked their milestone with their loved ones.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson added that funeral services would be exempt from the limitations, with the maximum number of mourners remaining at 30.

Damian couldn’t contain his delight as he congratulated the newlyweds while strumming the strings of his instrument. Helen’s right arm was held up in a sling, nearly a year after she used a scarf to support the same limb during a night out.
