Stewart lands knighthood
Actor Patrick Stewart is to become a 'Sir' - he will receive a knighthood in Queen Elizabeth II's New Year's Honours list.
The 69-year-old star will be honoured for his 50-year acting career, which spans the stage and screen and includes roles in sci-fi TV show Star Trek: The Next Generation and comic book blockbuster franchise X-Men.
Stewart follows in the footsteps of another legendary actor, Sir Christoper Lee, who received his knighthood in October (09).
