Veteran actor Sir Patrick Stewart, who recently received knighthood, has dedicated his achievement to his childhood schoolteacher.
The Star Trek star received the honour from the Queen in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
The 69-year-old said he owed "literally everything" to his secondary school mentor Cecil Dormand.
Dermond had pushed Stewart to pursue a career in acting.
'Although many people in my life and career have had a great influence on me, without this one man, none of it would have happened,' the Daily Express quoted Stewart, as saying.

Mariah Carey pregnant?
Singer Mariah Carey is reportedly pregnant.
Celebrity gossip website Radar Online claimed that a source close to Mariah and her husband Nick Cannon told them the happy news.
'They're both very excited and very happy,' the source apparently said.
A representative for Mariah did not deny that the singer is pregnant.
'I'm not at liberty to discuss Mariah's personal life at this time,' News.com.au quoted Cindi Berger as saying.
The 40-year-old pop diva sparked baby rumours recently when she dropped out of her next film role in For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.
