* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was nearly born in America, as his father was offered a position at Princeton but turned it down. Considering that Hugh Laurie was eventually cast in [[Series/{{House}} a series set in Princeton]], this is...quite interesting.

A man of intense intelligence and great coolness, '''Stephen Fry''' is the host of ''Series/{{QI}}'' and starred in ''Series/{{Kingdom}}'', about the life of a rural lawyer. He has also written and contributed to several books, namely ''Literature/TheLiarNovel'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_BlTirOD3o&feature=channel_video_title The Stars' Tennis Balls.]]'',''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxLnbGYAE5s The Hippopotamus.]]'' and ''Literature/MakingHistory'' (a time travel story about [[HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct erasing Hitler from existence]]), as well as three autobiographies ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poECor3_-lg&feature=related Moab Is My Washpot]]'', ''The Fry Chronicles'' and ''More Fool Me'', and ''The Book of General Ignorance''. He is very much the modern day OscarWilde (though he's English) and is generally considered a British national treasure.

A Cambridge graduate and a personal friend of Creator/JKRowling (he won a Talkie for his reading of the Literature/HarryPotter unabridged audio-books), he has appeared as [[GenerationXerox several Melchetts]] in ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', played Jeeves in ''Series/JeevesAndWooster'', portrayed OscarWilde in ''{{Film/Wilde}}'', and starred as Fry in ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie''. His reading of the Literature/HarryPotter audiobooks is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for his acting abilities. Not only is his voice acting superb, the sheer breadth and convincingness of the accents he puts on for the various characters is stunning. Excellent accents are a particular quality of his.

** In ''Series/QI'', when getting into an argument with Rich Hall over why no there were no classic romantic songs dedicated to the Second Moon, he shouted, "BECAUSE IT WAS DISCOVERED IN NINETEEN-NINETY-FUCKING-FOUR!"

He's produced and [[CozyVoiceForCatastrophes hosted]] three very personal documentaries, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4NuxGgUQfA HIV and Me]],'' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQkE56eFyk4 The Secret Life of the Manic-Depressive]]'', and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKPlMjpxqIk Wagner & Me]]'' which concern the result of the aforementioned disappearance to Belgium, eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder and his difficulties dealing with being a Jew who lost family in the Holocaust and a fan of Richard Wagner, a notorious anti-semite who inspired Hitler. [[note]]all links to trailers[[/note]] He was scheduled to write an episode of ''Series/DoctorWho'', but the idea fell through due to time constraints on his part, though he ended up married to the Doctor. (Or so the Doctor claims)

* HeyItsThatVoice: His voice is immediately recognizable, no less because he's done voice work (usually narration, although he has played Reaver and the Cheshire Cat in ''VideoGame/FableII'' and ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' at least) for a phenomenal number of things.
