Belfast boy Ken Branagh cements his place among Hollywood Boulevard's finest

Northern Ireland actor Kenneth Branagh has joined the galaxy of screen greats who have left an indelible mark on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Branagh performed the ritual reserved for a select band of movie stars by sinking his hands into the block of cement in front of the Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

He is set to star in the upcoming film adaptation of Agatha Christie‘s Murder on the Orient Express, which he also directed.

The Belfast-born actor starred as Billy, in the Billy Plays in the early 1980s, before mastering Shakespearean plays in London's West End, and also starred in a number of movies, most recently epic war movie Dunkirk.

He was also the 82nd person to receive the Freedom of Belfast, following in the footsteps of Michael Longley and Van Morrison.
