Our wish came true! We interviewed Welsh rugby legend, Gareth "Alfie" Thomas about being, in his own words, "a pasty Welsh genie" in Cardiff's current panto, Aladdin.

Capped 100 times for Wales in Rugby Union, Alfie here talks about his panto complexion, his rigorous training, crowd interaction and Christmas Day.

Questions by young Cardiffians. Expertly asked by theSprout's Editor, Sam Easterbrook.

Aladdin runs at the New Theatre until 17 January 2016. You can get your tickets here.
