Sir Ian Mckellen was honored with a special degree from his alma mater in Cambridge, England on Wednesday.
The Lord of the Rings star, 75, won a scholarship to study English literature at Britain’s prestigious Cambridge University when he was 18 years old and he returned to his former college on Wednesday to pick up a doctorate.
McKellen donned a cap and gown to be named an honorary Doctor of Letters for his services to acting. He received the same title from the University of Ulster in Ireland last year.
