London, Jan 3(ANI): Hollywood star Russell Crowe is all set to take a break from Hollywood, in order to discover his family roots in Wales.
The 43-year-old star will look for the relatives of his great-grandparents who used to run a fruit and vegetable shop in Wrexham.
The Oscar-winning actors expedition will be featured on the BBC Wales genealogy programme Coming Home.
Plans for filming are under way and everyone is very excited,” the Mirror quoted BBC, as stating.
Crowes grandfather had emigrated to New Zealand 80 years ago and his parents left for Australia when he was four.
However, the researchers have discovered that the Gladiator star has dozens of second cousins around Wrexham. (ANI)
