Llŷr Ifans (born 1968) is a Welsh actor, born in Ruthin.

Early life

Llyr Ifans is best known for appearing opposite his brother Rhys Ifans in the cult film, Twin Town, in 1997. A sequel with the suggested title Swansea Al Akbar was mooted but the plans were called off in 2011.[1]

In September 2007 Ifans appeared at Clwyd Theatr Cymru in their production of A Toy Epic, which ran at the Mold venue and then was taken on a short tour around Wales.

He also appeared in the short Welsh-language television drama S.O.S. Galw Gari Tryfan.

In 2015 Ifans gave "an enjoyably louche performance as the town's resident middle-aged delinquent, Nogood Boyo" in the S4C film of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood. [2]

Personal life

He is the younger brother of actor Rhys Ifans who appeared with him in the film Twin Town. Both are Welsh-language speakers. Llŷr is married to BBC Radio Cymru DJ and television presenter Lisa Gwilym, and has a young son (born 2013). They currently live in Y Felinheli.[3]
