Stars including Damian Lewis, Matthew Rhys and Katherine Jenkins have taken part in a commercial to promote tourism in Wales.

The Homeland star, who has family connections to Wales, was among the celebrities who filmed video messages welcoming U.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders to the country for a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (Nato) summit, which begins on Thursday (04Sep14).

Their messages form a commercial created by the Welsh Government to promote tourism and business to the world ambassadors.

In the clip, Lewis says, "My family has always had a farmhouse in West Wales and it is, I have to say, my favourite place on earth... welcome to Wales, we hope you find it as magical as we do."

Lewis' actress wife Helen MCCrory, whose mother is Welsh, appears in the video along with Brothers & Sisters star Rhys and classical singer Jenkins, who are also both Welsh.
