David Threlfall - David Threlfall Lands Honorary Degree

British actor David Threlfall returned to his alma mater in Manchester, England on Monday (15Jul13) to receive an honorary degree.

The Hot Fuzz star was awarded a Doctorate in Arts from Manchester Metropolitan University, the college he graduated from in the 1970s, in a ceremony at the city's Bridgewater Hall.

During the event, he took to the stage to dish out advice to fellow graduates, and admitted receiving the degree was a "humbling honour".

He told the audience, "I go to work, pretend to be someone else, have fun and go home. Acting is about life - it's about getting to know how other people live, feel and think - and you can practise anytime.

"It's about challenging yourself - there will be dark times and plenty of rejection but how you get through that will shape you as a person and make you the artist you can be."
