Reynolds, 47, was named to the Order of British Columbia on Wednesday. The news release from August announcing Reynolds’ appointment to the honour called it “the Province’s highest form of recognition and an official part of the Canadian Honours System.”
“It’s an honour of a lifetime to be awarded the Order of British Columbia,” the actor posted on Instagram on Thursday morning, attaching multiple images from the occasion. “I could have been born anywhere but I had the dumb and incredible luck to be made in Vancouver.”
Reynolds was one of the fourteen individuals named to the British Columbian Order this year. A press statement stated that 224 residents of the Canadian province had submitted nominations for the award. The Free Guy actor congratulated lieutenant governor Janet Austin and province premier David Eby for the prize in an Instagram post, but he also quipped that he “may have made some promises” he can’t make before focusing on his family.
Huge thanks to my three older brothers, Patrick, Terry and Jeff as well as my mom, Tammy… we’re always there for each other,” he wrote in a caption to his post. “No matter what. Love you.”
