Orlando Bloom, 33, the Pirates of the Caribbean star, received an honorary degree from the University of Kent on Tuesday.
“It's a really big deal. It's an exciting day for me. I'm really honored to be back in my home town. I have so many amazing memories of the cathedral and Canterbury. I have lived near the university so it's like my playground. It's a huge, huge honor and I feel chuffed, as does my mother - nobody more than my mother,” Orlando said proudly.
This was the first graduation ceremony for Orlando. The actor missed out his graduation at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama because of filming Lord of the Rings.
