Stephen Fry stars in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, as Mycroft Holmes. Fry recently provided the voice of the Cheshire Cat in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," starring Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska. Fry will soon be seen as Master of Laketown in Peter Jackson's highly anticipated "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."

Stephen Fry was born in 1957 and educated at an unfeasibly large number of educational establishments, most of which rapidly tired of him. At Cambridge University, however, he met and worked with Emma Thompson and life-long friend and comedy partner Hugh Laurie. Fry's first play "Latin!" received a Scotsman fringe first award and has been performed around the country. The Footlights revue he wrote and performed with Thompson, Laurie and Tony Slattery was televised by the BBC. Subsequent credits include "Alfresco," a comedy series for Granada (along with Laurie, Thompson, Ben Elton and Robbie Coltrane), three seasons of "Blackadder" with Rowan Atkinson (and Hugh Laurie), four seasons of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" with Laurie (both for the BBC), and four seasons of "Jeeves and Wooster" (also with Laurie) for Granada TV and WGBH Boston.

Fry hosts the BBC quiz show "QI" (for five seasons), has completed two series of "Absolute Power with John Bird" for the BBC and "Bones" for FOX, plus numerous single dramas for television, including Tom Brown's "Schoolboys" and most recently the series "Kingdom" for ITV. He has also presented the documentaries "Last Chance to See," "Fry I America," "Manic Depression," "HIV and Me" and "The Machine That Made Us," all for the BBC. As a stage actor, he performed in Alan Bennett's "Forty Years On," Michael Frayn's "Look, Look," Simon Gray's "The Common Pursuit and Cell Mates" (a run cut inexplicably short).

He won a Drama Circle award and a Tony nomination for his work on the revived musical "Me and My Girl," which ran for years on Broadway and in the West End.

His numerous film appearances have included award-winning performances in "Peter's Friends," "Wilde," "Gosford Park," "V for Vendetta" and most recently "Eichmann." He wrote and directed "Bright Young Things" in 2003.

He has written four best-selling novels, an autobiography "Moab Is My Washpot" and is well known amongst a younger generation as the reader of the audiobook versions of J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" novels. His latest book, "The Ode Less Travelled," was published in 2005.
