Hugh Laurie will get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
HUGH Laurie is set to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 57-year-old actor announced he was set to get the honour on the famous Hollywood Boulevard, California, on Tuesday via social media, and the 'Night Manager' star will be joined by Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Ridley Scott and Colin Firth to celebrate the momentous occasion.
Speaking about today's event on Twitter, he said: "I don't how to say this, or even be, except baldly: I am getting a star on Hollywood Blvd this Tuesday 25th at 11.30 am. (sic)."
And Hugh's friend and co-star Stephen Fry, who made up one half of 'A Bit of Fry & Laurie' comedy duo, will be the guest speaker at the star-studded event.
Hugh - who received the Golden Globe Award for two consecutive years in 2006 and 2007 for his role as Doctor Gregory House in the American series 'House' - has been swamped with praise from comedy writer and producer Simon Blackwell, as well as illusionist Derren Brown.
Simon tweeted: "@hughlaurie Never more deserved. Congratulations. (sic)."
And the 'Derren Brown: Mind Control' star wrote: "@hughlaurie that's excellent news. Congratulations. You will always be the shiniest star on MY Hollywood Boulevard. (sic)."
Meanwhile, Hugh has revealed he doesn't follow a "master plan" and never feels like he has made "clever choices" in his career, because he is regularly plagued by the fear he may "f**k it up".
Speaking previously, he said: "We look at other people's lives and we always assume that other people's lives are planned or the results are inevitable - that of course, they wind up doing such and such thing.
"It feels like a giant game of pinball. I don't have a master plan and it doesn't feel like clever choices. I'm living in a state of perpetual anxiety that I'm going to basically f**k it up."
