Stephen Fry (b. 1957) is an English comic actor and author. He is well-known for his roles in the British comedy series A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Jeeves and Wooster and several of the Blackadder series. His novels include The Liar and The Hippopotamus.
In 2005, Fry narrated the Creature Shop effects film The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, as the voice of the Guide itself. He also supplied the voice and mouth of the computer animated Librarian in the Henson Company film MirrorMask, and appeared on-camera as the blithely ignorant Inspector Thompson in Gosford Park, a 2001 film that included digital effects by the Creature Shop.
