More Log Cabins Articles The former "log cabin life" of a popular actor has been revealed.
A report in Now magazine notes that Colin Firth, who recently received widespread acclaim for his portrayal of George VI in new film The King's Speech, once lived in a log cabin in rural Canada back in the early 1990s.
According to the publication, Firth made the move after deciding to take a break from acting.
He set up home at the peaceful site with his then partner, actress-turned-writer Meg Tilly, whom he met on the 1989 film Valmont.
Firth, who has been tipped to win the Best Actor award at this year's Oscars, later left the log cabin and returned to London in a bid to get back into theatre acting.
The news comes after thisissomerset.co.uk recently reported on how a rock band had been able to record its new album in a log cabin in Somerset.
Leeds-based Cities Between Us said it chose to do the recording at Wall Eden Farm's holiday lodges in East Huntspill after seeking a private retreat in the UK.
