James Hugh Calum, better known as Hugh Laurie, was born in Oxford, England, on June 11, 1959. He is the fourth child in a family of four. William George Ranald Mundell “Ran” Laurie, his father, was a physician who won an Olympic gold medal in coxless (pairs) rowing in the 1948 London Games.
Laurie was educated in Oxford and attended Eton College later in life. Following in his father’s footsteps, he continued his study at Selwyn College, Cambridge. He studied anthropology and archaeology at the university during his time there.
Another way he followed in his father’s footsteps was through his participation in competitive rowing during his high school and university years. He was a part of the youth coxed pair that won the British national title in 1977 and participated for the British Youth Team at the Junior World Rowing Championships that same year.
He trained for up to eight hours a day during his peak athletic career. He was forced to retire from rowing due to glandular illness, however. He later joined the Cambridge Footlights, the university’s dramatic club.
Laurie was chosen to write and appear on “Alfresco,” a new sketch comedy show for Granada Television, with other Footlights members Ben Elton, Robbie Coltrane, Stephen Fry, and Emma Thompson. It lasted for two seasons. Then, during the 1980s and 1990s, he and Fry worked as a team. Their work with Fry as a writer and actor resulted in performances on much comedic television series, including the “Blackadder” series, the BBC sketch comedy series “A Bit of Fry & Laurie,” and “Jeeves and Wooster.”
