Daniel Day-Lewis Received Doctor of Letters Degree


Daniel Day-Lewis Received Doctor of Letters Degree


The actor once enrolled in Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and now he is the recipient of a special honor by Bristol University.

Daniel Day-Lewis returned to education on Thursday, July 15 - he was presented with an honorary degree from a university in England. The "There Will Be Blood" star donned a traditional cap and gown to accept the accolade at an official ceremony at Bristol University.

Day-Lewis was chosen to receive the Doctor of Letters degree in recognition of his outstanding career achievements and because of his link to the city - the Oscar winner attended the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. The actor spent three years at the academy, which was opened by Laurence Olivier in 1946.

Day-Lewis isn't the only celebrity who picked up an academic nod this week - Orlando Bloom collected his degree from the University of Kent, and "Sex and the City"'s Kim Cattrall was made a fellow at Liverpool John Moores University.
