Michael Sheen Gets Honoured by Queen :-)

Check out the video of Michael Sheen collecting his OBE for services to drama from Queen Elizabeth II at BBC News and read about it here.
Awarded an OBE in the New Year Honours, Sheen said he was looking forward to meeting the Queen for the first time.

"This is a huge honour," he said. "I am both thrilled and slightly mystified. But very grateful."

Sheen has played the former prime minister on two occasions - in The Queen and The Deal - which charted Mr Blair's rise to 10 Downing Street.

He added: "The Queen asked me what I was doing next and I was in the slightly tricky situation of saying 'I'm playing the prime minister again in a film about Tony Blair and Bill Clinton' and she said 'that must be a terribly difficult thing to do'."
Thanks, German Twilighters!
