Elijah Wood clocks 2,500 miles in a Mitsubishi ASX in South Wales
Celtic Mitsubishi in Victoria Road offered Elijah Wood a Mitsubishi ASX when the 33-year-old was in town filming for Set Fire To The Stars, a film about Swansea born poet and author, Dylan Thomas (Celyn Jones). The actor plays John Malcolm Brinnin, Thomas’ agent in the film.
Woods and his driver used the ASX for three-and-a-half weeks and clocked up 2,500 miles while in South Wales.
Tim Moorhouse, Sales Executive at Celtic Mitsubishi, met Elijah on set outside Swansea Guildhall. He said: “It was great to be able to meet him and he was very easy-going and really friendly. We spent quite a bit of time chatting away and he signed some things for me. He said he had enjoyed his time in South Wales, even though it didn’t stop raining the whole time he was here, and he really liked the car. He’s coming back for the premiere so hopefully we will lend him a car again then.”
Set Fire to the Stars is the only movie being filmed to mark the 100th birth anniversary of the poet. Filming took place at Bay Studios in Swansea Bay, and in other locations in the city.
