THE charity arm of The Green Man music festival has announced an actor and songwriter as its ambassador. 

Carmarthen born actor and songwriter, Iwan Rheon, will become The Green Man Trust's ambassador. 

His role will see him involved in the Green Man Trust’s many and varied arts development, training and Welsh community development projects.

Iwan is known for his performance in Misfits, Game of Thrones and has most recently been seen starring in Sky Atlantic’s new thriller Riviera.

Rheon is set to take the lead in Marvel’s ABC drama Marvel's Inhumans.

Iwan said: "Green Man is Wales’ largest music festival and there’s nothing like it in the world.

"Unusually it uses its success to help people; from developing community and sports projects, showcasing artists, training disadvantaged people, engaging with science to supporting small Welsh businesses.

"The ethos of creating opportunities runs right through the heart of Green Man.”

Green Man takes place next week (August 17 to 20) and is an internationally renowned music, science and multi arts festival held annually in the Brecon Beacons.
