1. Hugh Laurie on his character ‘House’: “The character is so inherently self-destructive to the point of being virtually suicidal, that a fictional character cannot sustain that suicidal tension indefinitely. You can’t have a man on a window ledge threatening to jump forever. At some point, he’s got to jump or get back into the building because the crowd below – who are either urging him to jump or not jump – eventually will lose interest. And I think because the tension must dissipate eventually. And I certainly felt – and I think that was a general view – that we should fold up our tent and steal away into the night before the tension had lessened.” [full interview here]
