Hugh Laurie has become the latest actor to be honoured with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
He joins the likes of fellow Brits, Emma Thompson and Dame Helen Mirren.
Laurie hit the big time in 2004 with his portrayal of Doctor Gregory House in the medical drama House. He’s also recently been seen opposite Tom Hiddleston in The Night Manager.
But for many back in the UK he is more affectionately known for his comedy roles along with his friend Stephan Fry in Black Adder and Jeeves and Wooster.
