Few personalities in Britain enjoy as universally acclaimed adulation as Stephen Fry. With TV work, movies, writing and documentaries in constant production, he’s also one of the busiest.
On top of his monumentally busy schedule, Fry will once again be hosting the Bafta Film Awards this Sunday (February 10).
Making presenting look easy is one of Fry’s hallmarks although he admits that it’s not always as seamless as it appears.

Although being one of the nation’s favourites, he admits that he can get away with a lot more than others.
He said: “I think I can get away with a little bit more cheek than someone who didn't. Someone who is a journalist or a presenter, had not actually been, not directed a film or not acted in a film, so that makes a little bit of difference."
