Online PR News – 05-January-2012 – – Stephen Fry certainly is a worthy successor to Ross, having proved his acting chops with roles in award-winning British films like Gosford Park and Wilde, alongside iconic turns in television shows Blackadder and A Bit of Fry & Laurie. He even has experience of being nominated for a Bafta as presenter of the panel show Q.I and for his factual series, Secret Life of the Manic Depressive. And whilst he may be a slightly unconventional Style Icon one cannot help but admire his trademark tweed blazers, loose shirts and ruffled hair - a true Brit eccentric. Having been voted the Most Intelligent Man on television by readers of the Radio Times, Fry is a personality with substance.Fry's career began in 1982 with the The Cellar Tapes, written by Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie - all of whom have gone on the have esteemed careers in both Britain and America, and have clocked up a number of Bafta nods between them. But it was the sketch show A Bit of Fry & Laurie that truly launched Fry's career, running from 1986 to 1995, the sketch show made by Fry and Hugh Laurie into British institutions. This status as a leading Brit comedian was cemented by his role as Lord Melchett in Blackadder II, a role he would return to in later series. His latest project, Q.I., has seen him become TV's wise man, a presenter for a more discerning audience - his popularity soaring through his engagement with his Twitter followers, stephen fry bafta nominations.
But Fry has not just been a luminary of the small screen, but he also has had a thriving career as a film actor. Perhaps the most famous of his roles was his turn as Oscar Wilde in the 1997 film, Wilde, for which he achieved worldwide accolades, including a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as the Brit literary genius. He also appeared in the Oscar nominated Gosford Park, as well as more recent roles in blockbusters V for Vendetta, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. In 2003 he even directed Bright Young Things, a feature film based on Evelyn Waugh's Vile bodies, an acerbic social commentary about London's aristocracy in the 1920s. He is also set to star in the hotly anticipated The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.In these varied roles, Fry has always had a particular look - whether in Wilde, Blackadder or Q.I. Fry is the slightly disheveled English gentleman, all blazers, shirts and cord trousers. For red carpet events he favours the traditional tux, a look that he will return to at the 2012 Baftas where he will wear a custom made suit by Hackett London, the official menswear sponsors of the 2012 Baftas, stephen fry bafta awards.
