TEDxSoho has announced three exciting new speakers have been added to the upcoming event this May including Michael Sheen.

Joining Sheen, who will be taking part virtually via a pre-recorded talk, in-person talk will be actor Ray Panthaki, whilst singer-songwriter Tom Odell will be performing. They will be joining the previously announced speakers at the Cambridge Theatre on 30th May.

King of both stage and screen, acting legend Michael Sheen will be taking part virtually by means of a pre-recorded TED Talk, exclusively for TEDxSoho, about levelling the cultural playing field. Known for his roles in Oscar-nominated projects such as ‘The Queen’ and ‘Frost/Nixon,’ Sheen has also conquered the small screen, most recently in Amazon Prime’s hit TV series ‘Good Omens.’
