Synopsis

A biography of the Golden Globe-winning actor behind Dr. Gregory House

 

From Blackadder to A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Jeeves and Wooster to House, Hugh Laurie has entertained millions in a career spanning three decades, and here is his story. This biography covers his early years-born in Oxford, where his father, WGRM "Ran" Laurie, was a doctor who won a gold medal in the coxless pairs at the 1948 Olympics. Hugh followed in his father's footsteps as a rower at Cambridge, but when he was forced to hang up his oars he joined the famous Cambridge Footlights and there began a career in comedy. The book covers his years at university when he met Stephen Fry, and the pair forged a hilarious partnership that continued through the 1980s and 1990s. It also discusses his great success on the big screen; starring in Sense and Sensibility, 101 Dalmatians, Monsters vs Aliens, and the three Stuart Little films. It also discusses the character of irascible doctor Gregory House in the drama House-the role that has brought global fame, two Golden Globes, a prestigious Emmy nomination in 2005, and critical acclaim.
