University of Winchester Honorary Doctorate
Winchester Cathedral, October 19, 2007
Actor Colin Firth enjoyed being in the spotlight in front of hundreds
of graduates when he took centre stage at Winchester Cathedral to
receive an honorary degree. The 47-year-old, who won the hearts of
millions of women with his portrayal of Mr Darcy in the television
production of Pride and Prejudice, received the honour from the
University of Winchester.
He said: "In some ways this could not mean more to me as I have never
laid my hands on one of these before."
and "Take your degree, celebrate it, put it in a
frame and give it to your mother'."
Both Colin's parents Shirley and David are former
lecturers at the university.
