Daniel Day-Lewis has made acting history at the Oscars. And there's a little bit of the South West that can bask in his reflected glory.
He honed his craft at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School where he was a student there in the late 70s.
And according to John Hartock, who was a teacher at the school while Lewis was there in 1979, he shone as an actor but was very quiet.
But acting wasn't always Lewis' first choice. When he was younger, he applied for a five-year apprenticeship as a cabinet-maker, but was rejected due to lack of experience. It was only after then that he was then accepted at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, before eventually performing at the Bristol Old Vic itself.
Now though, the Lincoln star has achieved so much, it's only right that he his own accolade here at the school. He's now top billing on the wall of fame.
Hi win on Sunday night for the title role in Lincoln _makes him the first actor to win three best-actor Academy Awards, adding the top prize to those for 2007's _There Will Be Blood and 1989's My Left Foot.
His sister, Tamasin Day-Lewis, isn't surprised he won the hatrick, but says it still hasn't sunk in.
Actors sometimes use the term 'resting' for being out of work. For Daniel Day Lewis, according to his Oscars' speech, he really is taking a couple of years off. So sadly, no fourth Oscar just yet.
