At the ceremony, Fry learned some handy phrases in the native tongue with help from Welsh actors Michael Sheen and Matthew Rhys.

British actor/writer Stephen Fry was awarded an Honorary Fellowship from a Welsh university on Tuesday, July 13 to celebrate his career. The funnyman first found fame in the U.K. for his comedy double act with Hugh Laurie, before a successful move into theatre, film, and radio work.

He was selected as one of ten Honorary Fellows by bosses at Cardiff University in recognition of his "international distinction" and attended a ceremony at the campus on Tuesday. And in a bid to impress his hosts, Fry learned some handy phrases in the native tongue - with help from Welsh actors Michael Sheen and Matthew Rhys.

In a post on his Twitter.com blog, he writes: "Time for Cardiff Uni ceremony. The darlings are making me an hon fellow. Sweet Matthew Rhys & Michael Sheen have given me Welsh to say. Eek!" Fry then posted a picture of himself wearing flowing robes as he prepared to receive the award.
