Joan Collins & Kristin Scott Thomas Have Been Named Dames!

Joan Collins and Kristin Scott Thomas are the latest actresses to receive the honor of being named dames by Queen Elizabeth II!

Joan will be receiving the honor for her services to charity while Kristin is receiving the award for her services to drama.

Actor John Hurt will receive knighthood for his services to drama.

“There’s nothing to compare to being a Dame and getting that kind of accolade from my country and my Queen. I am very patriotic and quite a Royalist so it is extraordinary”, Joan told BBC.

“This is an immense honor that I could not believe was really for me. In fact, I thought someone was playing a trick. But it’s true, apparently, and I am thrilled, astonished and worried that I might suddenly wake up!” Kristin said.

James Corden and Emily Watson will both be made an OBE for their services to drama.
