Melton Theatre have declared Andy Nyman as their first ever patron of performance.
Andy has a close association with the theatre already having studied at Melton College of Further Education from 1982 to 1984 and has gone on to star in many TV shows and movies.
Mr Nyman is perhaps best known for his work as the co-creator and co-writer for Derren Brown.
Recently he visited the current crop of Brooksby Melton College Performing Arts students and spoke about his career and the golden rules of acting.
This latest announcement follows the excitement over a visit by Warwick Davis to Melton Theatre last week.
The Star Wars legend was in the audience to support a friend during the casting of The Addams Family.
