Michael Gambon in "Harry Potter"

Harry Potter star, Sir Michael Gambon has been honored with a lifetime achievement award at the annual London Evening Standard Theatre Awards.

The Dublin born actor took home the Lebedev Special Award for a lifetime contribution to British theatre.

The 70-year-old actor took over the role of playing Hogworths principal, Albus Dumbledore when Richard Harris passed away in 2004.

Sarah Sands, deputy editor of the London Evening Standard said: "This year's winners illustrate the astonishing range of talent drawn to the stage. London theatre is, by far, the best in the world, and the Evening Standard is proud of its deep associations with it."
