Actor Hugh Laurie gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

British actor Hugh Laurie, best known for playing a cantankerous doctor in the TV series ‘House’, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday.

“I have lost count of the number of times, the number of young people I’ve met who are either studying or practising medicine because they saw ‘House’,” Laurie said at the ceremony in Los Angeles.

“There are physicians today saving lives, delivering babies and lancing boils because their imagination was ignited by stories and ideas and possibilities that they might not otherwise have considered,” he said.

Laurie currently stars in Hulu’s thriller TV series ‘Chance’, playing a forensic neuropsychiatrist.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame said on its website that Laurie received the 2,593rd star on the renowned Hollywood Boulevard
