Lincoln star, Daniel Day-Lewis has been made a knight in the Queen's Birthday Honours.  The actor who stared in the title role of the Steven Spielberg directed movie is among other stars who were also honoured.

Damian Lewis of Band of Brothers and Harry Potter's Dame Maggie Smith were also amongst those honoured.

The BBC tell us:
Triple Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis has been made a knight in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
The Lincoln star joins Wolf Hall novelist Hilary Mantel and fashion designer Zandra Rhodes, who are both made dames.
Dame Maggie Smith becomes a Companion of Honour. The actress joins 65 individuals recognised for "services of national importance".
American actress Angelina Jolie is being awarded an honorary damehood.
 Daniel Day-Lewis said he was "entirely amazed and utterly delighted in equal measure" to receive the honour.
He is known for being one of the UK's most intense and talented actors and is highly selective with his roles.
The 57-year-old puts a huge amount of preparation into his characters and often remains in character for the duration of a film's shoot.
In 2013, he made Oscar history by becoming the first man to win the best actor award three times.
The son of poet Cecil Day-Lewis and actress Jill Balcon, he won his first Academy Award in 1990 for My Left Foot, his second in 2008 for There Will Be Blood and his third last year, as President Abraham Lincoln.
He captured the public's attention with his roles in 1985 in My Beautiful Laundrette and A Room with a View, and establishing himself as a leading man in The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988).
He has won further accolades for his work in In The Name of the Father, The Age of Innocence and Gangs of New York.
The actor, who has both British and Irish citizenship, has not appeared in a role on stage since he dramatically withdrew from the National Theatre production of Hamlet in 1992, citing exhaustion.
