Impersonating medical professionals has rarely been outdone by Hugh Laurie. First, Gregory House was the detested doctor whose case everyone could relate to for years. Second, Hugh Laurie starred for eight seasons in Fox’s House from 2004 to 2012.
Despite this, his accuracy, sheer brilliance, and know-it-all attitude raised questions about his qualifications as a doctor. Perhaps you have the same question if you have watched the show.
Could you tell me your thoughts? Can Hugh Laurie be a real doctor?
Are there any similarities between Hugh and House? They both have musical talents. Besides playing piano and drums, Hugh Laurie also plays guitar, saxophone, and harmonica. Besides singing, NinjaJournalist says, there are receipts.
The actor has also penned a novel, suggesting more to him than fans previously thought. Additionally, Laurie revealed that he was suffering from depression, according to NinjaJournalist, though he regretted sharing his work; it made it harder to cope.
As a member of the cast, he acknowledged that it was much more challenging than fans expected. However, he still earns much more than most other TV stars, surpassing the net worth of the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ stars with ease.
Even though Hugh Laurie doesn’t claim to be brighter than Dr. House, there’s no doubt that he’s an intelligent man with his demons (even if it’s not an addiction to painkillers).
Hugh Laurie was born on June 11, 1959, in Oxford, England. He moved to the US while still very young, first to Louisiana, then to New Jersey. When he studied at Eton College, he spent some time back in the UK. He returned to the United States to study at Princeton University soon after.
Hugh Laurie worked as an actor until the late 1980s. In New York City, USA, Laurie enrolled in the Julliard School of Arts drama school.
Hugh began acting with minor roles before landing more prominent roles in TV shows. His most famous works include St Elsewhere (1982-1988) and Blackadder II (1986). Eventually, however, Laurie’s first notable role came with the House MD series, which ran from 2004 to 2012. The role earned him a Golden Globe nomination.
He was looking forward to some family time.
A fictional teaching hospital, Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, is set in Princeton, New Jersey, but the show is shot in Los Angeles. Because he is British, Hugh Laurie spent nine months in Los Angeles while filming House, which put him 6,000 miles away from his wife and three children in London. Laurie missed them so much while filming House in Los Angeles. He and his wife debated whether or not to move to LA for the job duration, but they decided not to take their kids out of school.
Music has been a part of his life ever since he was young.
How did Hugh Laurie spend his time after House aired its final episode? The actor didn’t entirely stop working, even though he wasn’t acting. Instead, he invested his time in another creative endeavor. His talent as a blues musician is as great as his love of acting.
Let Them Talk, Laurie’s first blues album was released in 2011. Eventually, he released a second album called Didn’t It Rain in 2013 after being surprised by its success. As it turns out, he didn’t have anything to be nervous about in the recording studio. The albums sold out, and the concerts sold out. Laurie told The Guardian, “There’s a sensual pleasure involved in making sounds — harmonious sounds — that I am unable to experience as an actor.
