Following up the news that The Man with the Golden Gun star Christopher Lee is to receive a knighthood, we can now report that two additional James Bond baddies have also been recognized on the Queen’s Birthday Honour List.
Broadway World reports that Tony award-winning performer Alan Cumming has been named an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire).
‘I am really shocked and delighted to receive this honour. I am especially happy to be honoured for my activism as much as for my work,’ stated Cumming, who received his honor for services to film, theatre and the arts and to activism for equal rights for the gay and lesbian community, USA.
007 fans best know Cumming as computer mastermind in Pierce Brosnan’s GoldenEye.
Also honoured is fellow Tony award-winner Jonathan Pryce, who starred as media mogul Elliot Carver in Tomorrow Never Dies. He has been named a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire).
