1. Biography

Laurie was born in 1959 in Oxford and his family was rich. His mother, Patricia nee Laidlaw, died when he was 29 and his father, W.G.R.M. "Ran" Laurie, was a doctor and an athlete who won the gold medal in rowing 1948 in London. Hugh has two sisters and a brother and all of them are older than he is.

Laurie studied at Eton and then went to Selwyn College, Cambridge: he took a degree in archeology and social anthropology. He was an athlete like his father, but he became an actor after meeting Emma Thompson, who presented him his future best friend and co-worker Stephen Fry.

In 1989, he married Jo Green and now they live in London with their two sons, Charles and Bill, and daughter Rebecca.
