Patrick Stewart

Patrick Stewart, most affectionately known by the geek community as either Capt. Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation or Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men films, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

Also a celebrated stage actor, Stewart has long been one of Britain’s most recognizable talents. Said the actor of his newfound Knighthood, “my heroes were Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Alec Guinness.” Being “in that company is the grandest thing that has professionally happened to me.”

The 69-year old actor first joined Britain’s storied Royal Shakespeare Company in his 20s, and has been lighting up stage and screen ever since. Though lets face it, he’ll always be that other guy who captained the USS Enterprise to us, right?
