'The Kings Speech' actor joins gets his own spot on walkway
Colin Firth has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The The King’s Speech actor, who is tipped for Oscar success next month for his portrayal of stammering British monarch King George VI in the film, dedicated the honour to his wife Livia, reports The Guardian.
Firth, who cried as the star was laid, said: “When I look down there at that star, it’s her name I see.”
He added: “I want to thank everybody who has accompanied me on this extraordinary journey, but probably more than anybody I could ever imagine Livia, who has walked every step of this with me joyfully and truthfully.”
Firth‘s star sits alongside British actress Emma Thompson. He is the 2,429th name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 2011 Oscar winners will be announced on February 27.
