Hugh Laurie

So, how's this for a fun, yet simple, idea? Photographer Howard Schatz was assigned by Vanity Fair to shoot strips of actors displaying different emotions and enacting dramatic situations by making faces for a feature called "In Character, Starring...." Out of the bunch I found the strip of actor Hugh Laurie, known these days rather as Dr House (I confess to never having seen the show), to be the absolute favourite. He is so spot-on with each of the task descriptions that he just makes it look all too easy, as though he wasn't even trying and yet he manages to nail it. Anglophiles will insist on remembering Laurie as Bertie Wooster alongside Stephen Fry in Jeeves and Wooster and indeed he was emotive in that series. Here are the task descriptions:

Left: You are a dedicated father who, with your wife, has just sat down to dinner with your 15-year-old daughter, who is defiantly announcing that she's pregnant.

You are a fashion designer on the morning of your big runway show, realizing that nothing in the collection is ready or fabulous

Right: You are a blustering, pompous member of the British Parliament, giving a speech that is being broadcast on the BBC, and you're thrilled at the sound of your own voice.

The rest of the strips featuring Golden girl Chloe Sevigny and John Malkovich et alia is found on the Vanity Fair website.

I must say, Fry is very close to the heart and if he is the godfather of Lauries children... well then Laurie is closing in. Beautiful, as awalys Ash!
