Late great movie star Richard Burton is to be posthumously honoured on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The actor's 2,491st star will be unveiled next to his ex-wife Elizabeth Taylor's plaque on 1 March (13).

Burton's daughters Kate and Maria will accept the honour on their father's behalf, while fellow Welshman Michael Sheen will be among the guest speakers honouring the Cleopatra star.

The date of the unveiling is extra special, as it's the official day of St. David, the patron saint of Burton and Sheen's native Wales.
