 Colin Firth receives a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame



British actor Colin Firth was presented with the 2,429th star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, an honor which the actor has dedicated to his wife. Firth, who received a Golden Globe nomination for his role as the lead in The King’s Speech, could be seen wiping away a tear during the official ceremony this week. Firth said that he wanted to thank everyone that has been part of his life during his amazing journey. 


The 50-year-old Firth dedicated the honour to his wife Livia. He said that when he looks down at the star he sees her name in it. Firth made his name in the film industry after playing the role of Mr Darcy in the BBC’s production of Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice.
