Sir Patrick Stewart dedicates knighthood to childhood schoolteacher

London: 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.
