Today is a sad, sad day as Hugh Laurie has stated that playing House in the hit TV show of the same name became a nightmare.
Not only is this hard news to hear and it was such an incredible show but it was one of my personal favourites (dare I say my favourite?) so to hear that Hugh Laurie didn’t enjoy playing the part is a hard pill to swallow!
Hugh told the Radio Times that the role became a ‘bit of a nightmare’ after so many years of playing it.
As if I didn’t cry into my pillow enough when they announced there would be no more House after season 8, but now I find that the lead wasn’t happy in his role – just devastating!
Down to Hugh’s brilliant portrayal of Dr Gregory House, the show became a massive hit and earned the actor two Golden Globes.
The fame that came with the role is what led him to resent the role, he told the Radio Times.
The role meant that he had to get his windows tinted and stop doing his own grocery shopping as he ‘couldn’t stand people photographing the contents of my shopping basket’.
He was the highest paid actor on TV, reportedly earning £250,000 per episode, so it just proves that money doesn’t always make you happy.
