Title - Extra Norfolk

Your questions answered: Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry

Thanks to everyone who sent in their questions for our interview with Norfolk's multi-talented Stephen Fry.

Perhaps best known for his Blackadder appearances and his role as Oscar Wilde in the film Wilde, the comedian, actor and writer grew up in Booton, near Reepham in Norfolk.

He briefly attended Gresham's School in Holt before going to prep school in Gloucestershire.

He returned to Norfolk to re-sit his A-levels at the college of West Anglia, formerly the Norfolk College of Arts and Technology in King's Lynn, before going on to study at Cambridge University.

A passionate supporter of the Canaries, Stephen gets to as many matches as he can from his West Norfolk home, where he can relax and get away from the buzz of London.

The winner of our competition for the best question - as chosen by Stephen himself - is Lisa Hodges from East Sheen. She wins signed Harry Potter cassettes.
