Fry is well known as an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, film director, and director of Norwich City Football Club. He is also known in Britain for his audiobook recording, especially as a reader for all the famous Harry Potter novels. He is currently portraying the British Prime Minister Alastair Davies in the 24: Live Another Day TV series.
He is very tall, about 6' 5" (1.95 m), and quite heavy-set, which often makes those who work with him seem less imposing. In Britain he is well known for his immense Twitter following (over 1M) and well-documented struggles with bipolar disorder (cyclothymia). Earlier in his career much was made of his sexual orientation, but this has seemingly been eclipsed by his popularity and cyclothymia.
