Even when Ryan Reynolds is away from Racecourse Ground, the Hollywood star still prioritizes his Wrexham co-ownership over his other ventures.

In addition to his successful career as an actor, writer and producer, Reynolds has established a thriving business empire, including companies like Aviation Gin, Mint Mobile, marketing company Maximum Effort, 1Password software and Wealthsimple. He also co-owns the Alpine F1 team and Welsh football club, a focal point of the documentary series ‘Welcome to Wrexham’.

On Wednesday, Reynolds was awarded the Order of British Columbia in a private ceremony, the province’s highest honor, recognizing his extraordinary contributions. Prime Minister David Eby presented Reynolds with the certificate of appointment at the event. Despite the ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ crew’s request to film the ceremony, the 47-year-old actor refused.

In a recent interview with the Vancouver Sunshine, Reynolds immersed himself in his education in Vancouver, British Columbia. Even when speaking of its early years, Reynolds could not resist mentioning Wrexham, thus indicating its continuing importance.

“I don’t remain indifferent to that,” Reynolds commented on the club’s promotion last season. “It’s football, anything can happen. It’s kind of a precarious situation day in and day out. We’re dealing with a lot of injuries at the moment.”

Reynolds’ choice of the term “soccer” rather than “soccer” reflects the cultural nuances shaped by his club’s ownership. Despite financial losses on investment, Reynolds embraced the city, expressing his passion and commitment.

Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson has previously spoken about the difficult period the club experienced before the arrival of its new owner, highlighting the significant positive changes made by Reynolds and McElhenney. Parkinson confirmed the Hollywood duo’s active involvement in the club’s affairs but clarified that they do not interfere with the selection of the team’s roster.
