Congrats to John Hurt!!
John Hurt was made a CBE by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Thursday; in which he the received 'honour for services to drama'.
"The Queen insinuated that it was an interesting profession and that I'd been at it for some time. She said how fascinating it was," he revealed.
On collecting his award, he said: "I've never done it before. It's a one-off. I'm very grateful and delighted."
But he said he was not worried before his palace date. "Oh, there's nothing to be nervous about," he said.
"I get nervous on a first night but you haven't got anything to prove here.".
For those that don't recall his part, Mr. Hurt played the mysterious Mr. Ollivander, in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Congrats to a well deserved honor!
