'Thunderball' star Earl Cameron given honourary degree (updated with photo)
Earl Cameron, who played the role of Pinder in the 1965 007 adventure "Thunderball" has been awarded with an honourary degree from Warwick University.
Cameron was honoured with a DLitt for âdistinguished men and women who have made important contributions to cultural, intellectual, social, economic or political lifeâ.
"It is quite an honour indeed and I must admit it came as a tremendous surprise to me to be asked," the 95-year old actor told the presses.
"I suppose it is because of my career, I have been in over 40 films and have done a huge amount of radio and theatre work.
"But this recognition is wonderful and I am very honoured to accept."
