LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Emmy Award-winning actor Jeffrey Tambor solidified his place in Hollywood history on Tuesday when he became the latest celebrity to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Tambor, 73, thanked his family and fellow cast members from the hit television series "Transparent," where the actor plays Maura Pfefferman, a divorced, retired transgender professor.
Tambor called the role "an opportunity of a lifetime, and the responsibility of a lifetime. I can't think of a more important time to do our show than right now."
Last month, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he intends to ban transgender people from serving in the military.
