London (ANI): Veteran actor Sir Patrick Stewart, who recently
received knighthood, has dedicated his achievement to his childhood
schoolteacher. The 'Star Trek" star received the honour from the
Queen in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
The 69 year old said he owed "literally everything" to his
secondary school mentor Cecil Dormand. Dermond had pushed Stewart
to pursue a career in acting.
"Although many people in my life and career have had a great
influence on me, without this one man, none of it would have
happened," the Daily Express quoted Stewart, as saying.
