Sir Ian McK becomes Companion of Honour... Can't Post

Honour for McKellen

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

Sir Ian McKellen has been made a Companion of Honour for services to drama and equality.

The Order of the Companions of Honour consists of the Queen and only 65 other members, all outstanding talents in their fields from painters Lucian Freud and Sir David Hockney to acclaimed actress Dame Judi Dench.

The star - who was awarded a knighthood in 1990 - received the honour from the Queen.



Sir Ian, an Oscar-nominated actor, is also a founder member of the gay rights organisation Stonewall established in 1989.

He's known around the globe for his role as Wizard Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which earned him an Oscar nomination in 2002. His other nomination was in 1999 for Gods and Monsters.

*waits for gramma to stop squealing*

And, apparently, Richard Griffiths ("Uncle Vernon" from Harry Potter fame), received an OBE.

R.I.P.
