Ryan Reynolds' new UK home village only has two pubs and a Co-op
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds' new home is a far cry from Hollywood - as the village only has one Co-op and two pubs.
Reynolds is reportedly setting up shop in the UK while he's the owner of Wrexham Football Club.
The Deadpool star has apparently snatched up a £1.5 million property to live in alongside wife Blake Lively.
If he was hoping to pop out to celebrate Wrexham's recent wins, he might find himself short of options in the quiet village.
Reynolds new home is rumoured to be a five mile drive from Wrexham's FC's home turf The Racecourse.
The picturesque village of Marford has only two pubs - the Red Lion and the Trevor Arms - where the 46-year-old Free Guy actor can expect to the rub shoulders with local fans.
There's also only one Co-op in the tiny village, which has a population of 2,500.
Marford may not be a big name hot spot for Hollywood stars, but locals are thrilled about the reported move of Reynolds.
One local told the Daily Mail: "It's fantastic news that he's chosen Marford as a place to live.
"What he and Rob [McElhenney] have put into Wrexham, both the football club and the local community, has been incredible.
"They've been a force for good over these last two years. I think they both have a genuine fondness for the club and the area and it's certainly reciprocated. Ryan is a bit like his character in Deadpool, very deadpan.
"I like that. He doesn't take himself very seriously and he's been criticised for taking on Wrexham by other rival supporters but he never snaps or gets heated. He deals with it all with humour - and that's the best way."
The reported news of his move comes off the heels of recent wins for Wrexham, as they scored big in games against York City and Oldham Athletic in recent weeks.
Reynolds first took on ownership of the team back in 2020, as he wanted to bring it back from the brink of dissolution.
Reflecting on the beginning of his football journey, Reynolds said: "I think back to that first moment. We were on Zoom speaking to the Wrexham Supporters' Trust and I don't think I have ever been as nervy as I was in that exact moment.
"I'm so touched I get to be a part of this story. I know that we are here so that you guys can thank us for some reason, but I feel like it is the other way around.
"We want to thank you for what you have given us. Words are too clumsy to quantify what it means to me."
