About Stephen Fry
Comedian, actor, writer, and director Stephen Fry is simply prolific. His first big successes came with his collaborations with Hugh Laurie in the BBC series "A Bit of Fry & Laurie" and "Jeeves and Wooster." Since then, Fry has been a fixture on the BBC, appearing in numerous adaptations of plays and books as well as series like "Kingdom." Perhaps you know him as the host of the immensely popular quiz show, "Q!" He has also hosted several documentaries, including a travel series, "Stephen Fry in America," one on endangered species, "Last Chance to See," a series about language, "Fry's Planet Word," an interview with Rolling Stone Bill Wyman in "Living the Life," and many more. He has even been the subject of one himself as he explored his own mental illness in "Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive." He has been busy on the big screen as well. After a few smaller roles, he starred in Kenneth Branaugh's 1992 film Peter's Friends, and his interpretation of Oscar Wilde in Wilde won him much critical acclaim. He appears in scores of other films: everything from an experimental psychology professor in I.Q. to the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland. His penchant for literary classics led him to adapt Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies for his 2003 directorial debut, Bright Young Things. Fans should be sure to get their hands on his autobiographies, The Fry Chronicles and Moab is My Washpot, or one of his several novels. Plus, you'll love his readings on all the UK Harry Potter audiobooks. Fry is enormously popular on social media sites, and his range of interest, from football to gadgets, has made Stephen Fry's Podgrams a treat for all.
