Ralph Fiennes is taking time away from heading up the U.K.’s Secret Intelligence Service in the new James Bond film to pick up the Legend award at this Sunday’s Empire Awards in London, March 29.
The BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated actor and director is being honored for a career spanning more than 30 films, dating back to his portrayal of Heathcliff opposite Juliette Binoche in 1992’s adaptation of Wuthering Heights and most recently his Golden Globe-shortlisted turn as the suave concierge M. Gustave in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Aside from taking over spymaster duties from Judi Dench as M in the latest Bond, Spectre, Fiennes is also currently treading the boards at London’s National Theater in Man and Superman.
The Empire awards, held annually by the U.K. film magazine, will also see The Hollywood Reporter present the award for best British film. This year’s award is being contested by Under the Skin, Paddington, The Imitation Game, Kingsman: The Secret Service and The Theory of Everything.
