Naomie Harris was honored for her services to drama by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace this week at an investiture ceremony. The actress, who is British, was named an Officer in the Order of the British Empire, or OBE.

OBE is one of a handful of distinctions in the honorary body. It is given to those who have a  “major local role in any activity, including people whose work has made them known nationally in their chosen area”.
“This is representing my country and being recognized for having made a contribution to the nation. It can’t get better than that,” she said after the ceremony.

Harris has appeared in two James Bond films as Miss Moneypenney and is nominated for an Academy Award for her role in Moonlight.  In that film, she plays the central character's drug addicted mother, Paula. Notably, Harris filmed her scenes in just three days because of troubles with her American visa.
