Washington, Feb 5 (ANI): Dame Judi Dench and Leonardo DiCaprio are among the few stars who have been selected to be inducted into a new Hall Of Fame dedicated to William Shakespeare.

The hall honours the performers, directors and artists inspired by the great dramatist's body of work.

To be erected in the playwright's birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, the hall of fame is due to open in April (09) - the month of both Shakespeare's birth and death.

Dench toured with esteemed theatre troupe the Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1960s, reports Contactmusic.

On the other hand, the 'Titanic' star played the tragic lead role in the 1996's 'Romeo and Juliet'.

Actors Laurence Olivier, Kenneth Branagh and Patrick Stewart - who have all played various Shakespearean characters on stage and screen - will also join the celebrated display. (ANI)
