HUGH LAURIE (Ian) stars in the Fox television series House, a new take on mystery, where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is a cantankerous doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.

Laurie began his career in the 1981 Cambridge University Footlights revue The Cellar Tapes, along with Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson. This award-winning show was transmitted by the BBC in 1982.

Since then Laurie's accomplished body of television work includes The Crystal Cube (which he wrote), the second series of Alfresco for Granada, The Young Ones, and the second series of Saturday Live.

He is also well known for his comedic role as Prince Regent in Rowan Atkinson's BBC series The Blackadder. Together with Stephen Fry, Laurie co-wrote and performed in BBC's hit series A Bit of Fry and Laurie. This was followed by his role as Bertie Wooster in Granada's long-running series, Jeeves and Wooster; All or Nothing at Al; BBC's Spooks; Carlton's production of Nigel Williams' novel Fortysomething; and The Young Visitors.

Laurie took part in the 1987 Royal Variety Show with Stephen Fry, and played the lead in Gasping written by Ben Elton at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Laurie's motion picture credits include Plenty, Strapless, Peter's Friends, Sense and Sensibility, 101 Dalmations, Cousin Bette,The Man in the Iron Mask, The Place of Lions, the smash hit Stuart Little and the sequel Stuart Little II; Maybe Baby, That Girl From Rio, and Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows, (as Vincente Minnelli)

In addition to acting, Laurie directed television programs and commercials, composed and recorded numerous original songs, and he wrote articles for The Daily Telegraph. Four volumes of A Bit of Fry and Laurie scripts have been published by Mandarin.

His novel, The Gunseller, was published both in the U.K. and U.S. to great success, and was adapted into a screenplay.
