    Sir Patrick Stewart has had his hand and footprints immortalised in cement at the TCL Chinese Theatre

    The 79-year-old actor marked his astonishing career - which spans over 50 years and includes roles in the likes of the 'X-Men' and 'Star Trek' franchises - with having both his handprints and footprints cast in cement in an event held at the theatre in Los Angeles on Monday (13.01.20)

    Patrick got a helping hand as he stood in the cement, before getting on his knees to press his hands into the mixture as well.

    Speaking at the ceremony, he joked: "I think the last time I kneeled was before the Queen!"

    And he then added: "I'm still not really believing any of it. Any moment now somebody will say, 'Patrick, Patrick, get up, you're dreaming again.' "

    The honour comes just 10 days before Patrick will be seen on screens once again as his iconic 'Star Trek' character Jean-Luc Picard, in the upcoming web television series 'Star Trek: Picard'.

    Patrick first played the the captain of the starship USS Enterprise in 1987 during television series 'Star Trek: The Next Generation', and went on to appear in one episode of 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine', as well as in feature films including 'Star Trek Generations', 'Star Trek: First Contact', 'Star Trek: Insurrection', and 'Star Trek: Nemesis'.

    LeVar Burton, who played Geordi La Forge alongside Patrick in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation', led the speeches in his co-star's honour at the event.

    Geordi is not thought to be making a return for 'Star Trek: Picard', but familiar faces including Data (Brent Spiner), Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), and Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) will be featured.

    'Star Trek: Picard' will premiere on January 23 on CBS All Access, and will mark the first time Patrick has played the starship captain since 2002.
