Oscar-award-winning actor Kevin Spacey was the honored guest at a reception held last week at the residence of the Greek ambassador in the United States, Alexandros Mallias.
The Hollywood star was in Washington D.C. to receive the William Shakespeare Award for Classical Theatre, the Will Award.
Mallias praised Spacey for his achievements on the big screen and his devotion to classical theatre, especially his contributions as the artistic director of London's Old Vic theatre.
Among the most recent productions of the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington is Aeschylus' "Persians", which was funded by the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation.
