Previously it was announced that two actors from the Harry Potter films would be among those made Officers of the Order of the British Empire, a special award presented by the Queen of England. Today actor Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) and actress Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge in Phoenix) received their honors. The BBC reports that:

Both Coltrane and Staunton - shortly to appear together in the fifth instalment of the Harry Potter franchise - played down the achievements that brought them their honours.

"Once you've been doing anything for 25 years people start to notice you," joked Coltrane, best known for his role in TV drama Cracker.

Congratulations to them both! Filming for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has begun in England, and the film is scheduled for release in 2007.
