Veteran actor Glenn Close will be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at this year's Zurich film festival.

Close will receive the Golden Icon honour on October 1, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Close is best known for her roles in "Fatal Attraction", "Dangerous Liaisons" and "Albert Nobbs".

"From her commanding portrayal of Patty Hewes in 'Damages' to the glorious Marquise de Merteuil in Stephen Frears' 'Dangerous Liaisons' via Alex Forrest and Cruella De Vil, Glenn Close has brought her extraordinary presence to countless memorable roles over a truly formidable career," said festival co-directors Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri.
