Later today (11:30 am PT) Hugh Laurie‘s accomplishments as an actor will be cemented in Hollywood history, with a star on the Walk of Fame.
We know Laurie from earlier roles in the 1980s series Blackadder and Jeeves and Wooster with his comedy partner Stephen Fry in the 1990s. Since then, Laurie has made a breakthrough into the U.S. TV scene as the formidable Dr. Gregory House on the long-running series House. (2004-2012). Just this year, we saw Laurie as the devilishly good bad guy Richard Roper in the AMC original The Night Manager, opposite Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Tom Hollander. He recently made his return to the medical drama genre as a possibly too-smart-for-his-own-good-doctor in the Hulu original Chance, which premiered last week on October 19, 2016.
We can continue to rattle off Laurie’s dramatic feats then and now, but this Anglo post on 10 Reasons We Love Hugh Laurie may help fill in the blanks.
And one more reason we can add to the list: He’s humble. We see this in his recent Tweet letting his fans know about today’s activities:
I don't how to say this, or even be, except baldly: I am getting a star on Hollywood Blvd this Tuesday 25th at 11.30 am.
