Skincare advice from Hugh Laurie: “Don’t rub a cheese grater up and down your cheeks.”
(Fresh Air interview with Laurie? Check.)
Audio for Terry’s conversation with Hugh Laurie is now available. Enjoy!
R’s are problematic letters. But I do find that I cannot think of a single word or a single syllable that really comes out the same in English and American. … Almost everything is alien to me. But I got more comfortable with it.
— Hugh Laurie is British. On today’s Fresh Air, he talks about playing an American doctor with an American accent.
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]
