    For some reason, I figured he was already knighted.

    And yeah, I think he's pretty hot. That voice + accent = swoooon. icon_lol.gif

    He was hilarious playing a gay impresario on "Frasier" several years ago. An amazing and criminally under-appreciated actor.

    Currently, as in, at this VERY moment, watching him in the classic, "I, Claudius" - he was so young. Such a great mini series!

    The British honours system is one of the oldest in the world. It has evolved over 650 years as the country has found alternative means of recognising merit, gallantry and service.

    Honours lists are published twice a year at New Year and in mid-June on the date of The Queen's official birthday. Anyone can receive an award if they reach the required standard of merit or service, and honours lists contain a wide variety of people from different backgrounds. Anyone can nominate someone for an award.

    The complete list can be found here: http://www.direct.gov.uk/prod_consum_dg/groups/dg_digitalassets/@dg/@en/documents/digitalasset/dg_183669.pdf

    Patrick Stewart won me over in Excalibur many years ago, before I was even old enough to truly appreciate him. He lends an almost unshakable validation to anything he is in or does.

    That and come on... he's Captain Picard for crying out loud icon_exclaim.gif

    I loved that episode. I always thought the Frasier boys were the epitome of a gay couple, and just pretending to be brothers. I'm glad in later seasons that other characters would start confusing them as a gay couple as well, and they would be polite at explaining they are only brothers, all the while giving each other dirty bitter looks.....just like any gay couple would!

    Professor X, I mean Patrick Stewart, should've been knighted a long time ago. I just recently saw him play Scrooge in A Christmas Carol and he was amazing.
