Russell Crowe loves Pembrokeshire

Written by Powells Holiday Team on

Whilst in the Welsh capital of Cardiff for the premiere of his latest film, Noah, Academy Award-winning Russell Crowe told of his love of Pembrokeshire, having filmed the Ridley Scott-directed Robin Hood in the west Wales county.

The New Zealand-born actor discussed the area so popular with families staying in Pembrokeshire summer cottages with his Robin Hood co-star Cate Blanchett; Crowe said it reminded him of his home and the coastal beaches of Australia with Blanchett saying “'I suppose that is why it was New South Wales then' and we both had a laugh together”.

The actor spent several weeks on the Pembrokeshire coast in 2009 for the filming of Robin Hood and said at his latest premiere, as shown in this BBC article, “I loved Pembrokeshire, it is fantastic”. It would not be the first time that the idyllic Pembrokeshire coast was used for the filming of a blockbuster film, as Freshwater West, a top surfing location where Crowe filmed scenes of Robin Hood, was also used for the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that same year.
