January 11th, 2012 by www.hughlauriefaq.com

If you’ve recently purchased some direct tv deals you may have noticed an enticing if not abrupt new doctor on your TV – Hugh Laurie is best known now for his leading role as “House” on the same-named show but he’s got a lot of previous acting credits, too. Here are some of our favorite past works from him.
Sense and Sensibility: No one loves English period adaptations more than us and Hugh is just as wicked in this 1999 classic as he is on House. If you want to see his softer side, watch this film.
101 Dalmations: The real-life adaptation of the cartoon is worth a viewing in its own right but with Hugh playing the dastardly Jasper, it’s a downright must see. Who would have thought Dr. House was a kids’ star?
Friends: Yup, Hugh once starred on Friends, just like every other big actor these days. Catch him in the episode “Ross’ Wedding, Part II” as a disruptive and argumentative wedding guest, what else?
Think outside the TV! Hugh’s all over the place and you should check for his other appearances soon.

Hough Laurie plays the main doctor character on the show famously knowing as House. As the character Dr. House, Hough portrays a physician who will do what it take, even break the ethical laws of medicine, to get the job done and save a life. Sometimes it is hard to tell whether his dedication is for the sake of boosting his pride or for the sake of the patient. Either way, his brilliance, wit and willingness to break the rules, always saves the day. But what does the real Hough Laurie think of the medical world and its practices?
In several interviews the actor shows an on the fence or double sided views on his own character and the ways medicine is practiced in the real world. He supports his characters actions in many cases stating that sometimes breaking the rules and stepping over boundaries of how things “should be done” is the right way to go if it means bettering or saving a life. Of course, he has no complaints about medical practices as they are today except to say that sometimes you have to try something new, think outside of the box and test new theories in order to advance the common knowledge of medicine.
