THE QUEEN star Michael Sheen is looking forward to meeting the real Queen Elizabeth II - after he was named in the British New Year Honours list.
The actor starred as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, opposite Dame Helen Mirren as the U.K. monarch, in the Oscar-winning film.
And Sheen is delighted he will now get the chance to meet genuine British royalty when he accepts an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to drama.
He says, "It'll be nice to meet the real one at last. This is a huge honour. I am both thrilled and slightly mystified."
