Stephen Fry Net Worth $30 Million

Stephen Fry was not a model student, but completed his school education at City College, Norwich, after a term on remand in prison for stealing a credit card, scoring well enough in the Cambridge entrance examination to gain a scholarship to Queens’ College. At Cambridge, Fry joined the Footlights Club – a performing group where he met his future comedy collaborator Hugh Laurie – appeared on the TV quiz show ‘University Challenge’, and graduated with a degree in English Literature.

After the successful aforementioned start, Stephen was invited to work on the sketch comedy show ‘There’s Nothing to Worry About!’ as a cast member together with Hugh Laurie. Later, they created a mockumentary television pilot ‘The Crystal Cube’ in which they were main cast members, but BBC chose not to take it to a full series, so they created sketch comedy TV series ‘A Bit of Fry & Laurie’ which they both wrote, and starred in. Moreover, Fry increased his net worth while starring in the sitcom ‘Blackadder II’ and its sequels created by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton, comedy-drama series adapted by Clive Exton ‘Jeeves and Wooster’, comedy series ‘Absolute Power’, and others.These all contributed significantly to Stephen’s net worth.

Stephen Fry added further to his net worth while appearing in dramas, including ‘The Common Pursuit’, ‘In the Red’, ‘Gormenghast’, ‘The Borrowers’, ‘Kingdom’, ’24: Live Another Day’ and others. Stephen was also active in documentaries and other factual programmes. His first documentary film was ‘Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive’ which won an Emmy Award, and he also appeared in the genealogy series ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, narrated ‘The Story of Light Entertainment’, travel series ‘Stephen Fry in America’, nature documentaries ‘Spectacled Bears: Shadow of the Forest’, and others. Currently, Stephen is still the host of the quiz show ‘QI’ which was created and produced by John Lloyd and won the Rose d’Or award for “Best Game Show Host” which has updated Fry’s net worth.

Stephen Fry has also been active in cinematography. He starred in ‘Wilde’, the British biographical film directed by Brian Gilbert, a role which brought him a nomination for Best Actor in Drama in the 1998 Golden Globe Awards. He also starred in ‘Gosford Park’ directed by Robert Altman, ‘The Life and Death of Peter Sellers’ directed by Stephen Hopkins, and others.

Stephen increased his net worth while not only starring in films but also directing them. He wrote and directed ‘Bright Young Things’ and others. He has also created radio programmes, with shows like ‘Saturday Night Fry’, ‘I Am Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’, ‘The Incomplete and Utter History of Classical Music’ and lots of more.

Stephen Fry has written scripts for theatre plays, and has also starred on stage. Further, Fry has been reading audio books, including J. K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’ series, Douglas Adams’s ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy’ and etc.

Recently, Stephen was ranked sixth for the BBC’s Top Living Icon Award, Broadcast magazine listed Fry at number four in its “Hot 100” list of influential on-screen performers, and he has been described as a polymath and a ‘national treasure’. Given Stephen’s crowded career to date, one cannot deny that these awards are well deserved.

In his personal life, Stephen Fry kept his homosexuality from the public until 1995. When asked when he first acknowledged his sexuality, Stephen is supposed to have said: “I suppose it all began when I came out of the womb. I looked back up at my mother and thought to myself, ‘That’s the last time I’m going up one of those’.”

Fry was in a 15-year relationship with Daniel Cohen, then in 2015 he married his partner, stand-up comedian Elliott Spencer.

Looks like we don't have Stephen Fry salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Is a snooker fan. Attends the final in Crucible Theatre in Sheffield every year.
2 Despite his fame and charitable efforts, Stephen Fry has been very open and honest about the details of his less than respectable past which includes a brief stint in jail for credit card fraud and 15 years addicted to 'snorting coke' (cocaine). In his recent autobiography he provides a list of places whose owners he offers his deepest apologies to for indulging in his illegal drug habit on the premises, a few of the places on this list were: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, The Houses of Parliament, BBC HQ, ITV HQ and several military bases and headquarters.
3 He earned £100,000 for a TV commercial for Marks & Spencer. [2009]
4 On an episode of QI, a panelist, with reference to the topic at hand, questioned Jo Brand about her previous work as a psychiatric nurse, asking "If someone had said to you they were God, what would you have done?" Jo Brand laughed and said "I probably would have punched him to the floor!" At which point Stephen Fry quipped "What a loss to the profession you were!".
5 Began providing Stephen Fry's Podgrams: free podcasts about his adventures, available via his official website. [February 2008]
6 Still continues to do a lot of acting and make regular TV appearances. [January 2002]
7 Has openly discussed his struggles with depression and attempted suicide.
8 His favorite actresses are Luise Rainer, Katharine Hepburn, Meryl Streep and Sally Field.
9 He played the Irish author and playwright Oscar Wilde in both Ned Blessing: The Story of My Life and Times (1993) and Wilde (1997).
10 Supports Norwich City Football Club, regularly attending games (as his schedule allows) and is on the board of directors.
11 Fry fervently supports the return of the Elgin Marbles to Greece.
12 Is good friends with Carrie Fisher.
13 As good friend of Douglas Adams, he claims to know why Adams chose the number '42' as the Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything in his novel 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy'. However, he refuses at length to disclose the reason, or will act as if the microphone magically malfunctions, as if the Universe itself is stopping him from making the revelation.
14 Served as best man at friend Hugh Laurie and Jo Green's wedding (1989).
15 Recorded an 'outro' for popular You-Tube vlogger, Charlie Mcdonnell. (aka. Charlieissocoollike).
16 His very recognisable crooked nose is a result of breaking it when he fell over in the school playground at the age of six.
17 His maternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Surany, now in Slovakia. His father's family is English.
18 Speaks German.
19 Mentioned on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (on a night when Tom Cruise was another guest) that he was offered a role in Valkyrie.
20 Blacks out his website as part of Internet Blackout Week NZ from Feb 16 to 23 to protest against the controversial New Zealand 'Section 92A' law which has ISPs disconnect users accused of copyright infringement.
21 Is related to English sportsman, politician and polymath C. B. Fry.
22 Ranked #44 in the 2008 Telegraph's list "the 100 most powerful people in British culture".
23 When in London, Fry drives his own black cab for ease of transportation.
24 He has been described as "deeply dippy for all things digital", claims to have owned the second Apple Macintosh sold in the UK (after friend Douglas Adams) and to have never encountered a smartphone that he has not bought.
25 Won the 1998 Sidewise Award for Alternate History for his novel Making History.
26 In the 1980s he shared a house in London with Hugh Laurie. They needed some plastering doing. The plasterers turned out to be Paul Whitehouse and Charlie Higson who were inspired by Fry and Laurie to have a go at comedy.
27 Very fond of vintage British TV themes.
28 He has a very wide taste in music, with particular favorites being Richard Wagner, Led Zeppelin and ABBA.
29 Is a big fan of the iconic 60s British comedy rock band, the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, and participated in their 40th anniversary reunion show at the Astoria in London on January 28, 2006 along with 'Adrian Edmondson', Paul Merton and Phill Jupitus.
30 Suffers from bipolar disorder.
31 He was a good friend of author Douglas Adams and John Mills.

#Quote
1 It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what.
2 Self-pity will fulfill all the prophecies it makes and leaves only itself.
3 The day life has so little to offer that I read the next Shirley MacLaine book, disembowel me.
4 It has a new meaning when it's the 'we' in 'wed'.
5 My poor husband has to put up with the fact that BAFTA comes first.
6 [on homosexual marriage] It really makes a difference to know that one is conjoined in a legal way.
7 Gosh. Elliott G Spencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.
8 I was really, really knocked for six by the death of Robin Williams. Far more talented [than me] but a similar track of cocaine and alcohol use and then he stopped and then very recently, very recently, as we know, he could take it no more. A man who gave such extraordinary pleasure and even the films people criticised him for, the slightly sentimental ones, were because that's how he was, he was such a soft, sweet, kind man. I've seen him in rooms being more funny than all collective comedians put together in history have been. It's not that he was funny, he "was" funny. Whatever funniness is, he was it.
9 What is the point of the Catholic Church if it says, "We didn't know better because nobody else did?" Then what are you for?
10 I have a great interest in zoology. There are 480 species of animal that exhibit homosexual behaviour but only one species of animal on earth that exhibits homophobic behaviour. So which is normal?
11 Homophobia is still a world problem. Homosexuality isn't and never has been. Homosexuals are not interested in making other people homosexual. Homophobics are interested in making other people homophobic.
12 [to Russian homophobe Vitaly Milonov] You really ought to stop because you're making a great fool of yourself on camera. This is going to be shown around the world and if people hear you speaking like this, they're going to think so little of Russia. They're going to think: "Is this man actually allowed to use the street and the telephone, let alone be a politician?"
13 [on the death of Peter O'Toole] Oh what terrible news. Farewell Peter O'Toole. I had the honour of directing him in a scene. Monster, scholar, lover of life, genius.
14 We're human beings like everybody else and we believe first and foremost in love. At least 260 species of animal have been noted exhibiting homosexual behaviour but only one species of animal ever, so far as we know, has exhibited homophobic behaviour - and that's the human being. So ask which is really natural. There are other faiths like Quakers and Congregationalists and Unitarians and the Liberal Reform part of the Jewish faith who are actually extremely keen. They feel their communion won't be complete unless it includes gay marriage because they believe in social justice and equality too. It's wrong, in a country like ours, which has an established Church, just because their more extreme end is screeching with outrage at the idea of this, that we are not allowed to be married. It's unfair on plenty of other religious people and it is misrepresenting what we require, which is only the same as anybody else, and that's to express our love in the fullest possible way of commitment.
15 [to a Ugandan homophobe] Why are you obsessed with anuses? I'm not interested in anuses. I'm interested in men I fall in love with and not with anuses. Can't you understand? It's about love. You are so base and materialistic. I'm not interested in sodomy and buggery, I am not interested, so forget about it, you're so perverted, all you care about is penises and vaginas and anuses. It's so sick. Your obsession with sodomy, it says something very peculiar about you if I may say so. It's quite extraordinary, it's a most peculiar thing. It's not up to you to tell me how to use my penis, my penis was there to give me pleasure. Under the cloak of caring, you have designated homosexuality to be a vicious, perverted disease.
16 Most sodomy, most anal intercourse takes place between men and women.
17 Will we never learn? Who knows? Religion. Shit it.
18 [in support of a proposed ban of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics because of anti-gay legislation in Russia] I am gay. I'm a Jew. My mother lost over a dozen of her family to Hitler's anti-semitism. Every time in Russia - and it is constantly - a gay teenager is forced into suicide, a lesbian 'correctively' raped, gay men and women beaten to death by neo-Nazi thugs while the Russian police stand idly by, the world is diminished and I, for one, weep anew at seeing history repeat itself.
19 [re disclosure in June 2013 that he had tried to commit suicide in 2012] I am the victim of my own moods, more than most people are perhaps, in as much as I have a condition which requires me to take medication so that I don't get either too hyper or too depressed to the point of suicide. I would go as far as to tell you that I attempted it last year, so I'm not always happy - this is the first time I've said this in public, but I might as well. I'm president of Mind, and the whole point in my role, as I see it, is not to be shy and forthcoming about the morbidity and genuine nature of the likelihood of death amongst people with certain mood disorders. It was a close run thing. I took a huge number of pills and a huge [amount] of vodka and the mixture of them made my body convulse so much that I broke four ribs, but I was still unconscious. And, fortunately, the producer I was filming with at the time came into the hotel room and I was found in a sort of unconscious state and taken back to England and looked after. There is no 'why', it's not the right question. There's no reason. If there were a reason for it, you could reason someone out of it, and you could tell them why they shouldn't take their own life.
20 [re his mental problems] If unmedicated, there are times when I am so exuberant, so hyper, that I can go three or four nights without sleeping and I'm writing and I'm doing stuff and I'm so grandiose and so full of self-belief that it's almost impossible to deal with me. I can't stop speaking, I'm incredible, I go on shopping sprees...Fortunately one of the common signs of mania, or hyper-mania as it is known, is sexual exhibitionism. I don't have that as one of my brands, but others do. ...There are times when I'm going 'ha ha, yeah yeah' and inside I'm going 'I want to f***ing die. I...want...to...f***ing...die. The fact that I am lucky enough not to have it [mental illness] so seriously doesn't mean that I won't one day kill myself, I may well.
21 Inevitable George Entwistle would fall on his sword. Damned for stopping a Newsnight (1980), damned for allowing one. A kind, wise man. Heigh ho.
22 To repatriate a power takes treaties, rows, enmities, alliances and betrayals. To repatriate a collection of stolen marbles take good will, moral courage and a decisive belief that right can be done. How can we British be proud until we sit down with Greek politicians and arrange for the return of their treasure? It's time we lost our marbles.
23 I feel sorry for straight men. The only reason women will have sex with them is that sex is the price they are willing to pay for a relationship with a man, which is what they want. Of course, a lot of women will deny this and say, "Oh no, but I love sex, I love it!" But do they go around having it the way that gay men do?
24 It is a cliché that most clichés are true, but then, like most clichés, that cliché is untrue.
25 Happiness is no respecter of persons.
26 I don't pretend to be a businessman. Spreadsheets and Powerpoint presentations make me want to scream, gouge out my eyes and stab my ears. I have never been able to read a profit and loss account or a balance sheet, and I go swimmy and feel sick if I have to read a legal document because on the whole I'd rather watch television.
27 The only drama the BBC will boast about are Merlin (2008) and Doctor Who (2005), which are fine, but they're children's programmes. They're not for adults. And they're very good children's programmes, don't get me wrong, they're wonderfully written ... but they are not for adults. They are like a chicken nugget. Every now and again we all like it. Every now and again. If you are an adult you want something surprising, savoury, sharp, unusual, cosmopolitan, alien, challenging, complex, ambiguous, possibly even slightly disturbing and wrong. You want to try those things, because that's what being adult means.
28 I love Britain, like most Britons I get desperately upset at her failings: when it goes wrong, when it gets it totally totally wrong, when it's shoddy, when it's inefficient, incompetent, rude, vulgar, embarrassing, when it slips into national torpor or boils into bouts of embarrassing national fever. I can moan about health and safety gone mad and leaves on the line, rail networks and crap service and crap weather and crap sporting achievements and crap politicians and crap newspapers and crap attitude. I can do all that. In fact it's the defining signature quality of my Britishness to talk like that, to complain and to self-castigate but does it mean that I don't love this damned country? Does it mean that I don't get weepy when I think of its history, its people, its countryside, its richness, its plurality, the cultural and artistic energy, the good humour, tolerance, the ability to evolve for good, achingly slow as that ability might be? Does it mean that I don't as it were stand to attention when I think of the sacrifice of our military, the selfless good of so many working in hospitals and schools and rescue services and the million acts of unremembered kindness, decency and good fellowship practised every day by unsung heroes and heroines in every walk of life? Of course it doesn't mean that I don't love and respect that. One carps and one criticises because one loves.
29 There is as far as I know no profession in this country that likes to talk about itself more than broadcasting.
30 To be human and to be adult means constantly to be in the grip of opposing emotions, to have daily to reconcile apparently conflicting tensions. I want this, but need that. I cherish this, but I adore its opposite too. I'm maddened by this institution yet I prize it above all others.
31 I love television in this country. I love the range and richness of the programming. I love its ambition, its scope, its innovation. I love the tradition, the technological innovation, the gossip, the corporate drama on the inside, the reach and influence on the outside. I admire the talent and the commitment of so many working in the field. I love everything about what television has been, what it still is and what it might yet be. If I criticise anything about it, I hope you will be able to see that I do so as with nationhood, from the point of view of love not enmity.
32 Television as the nation's fireplace, the hearth and the heart of the country, the focus of our communal cultural identity, that television is surely dead. It seems unlikely ever to return. Instead of being the nation's fireplace, TV is closer to being the nation's central heating. It's conveniently on in every room, it's less discernible, less of a focus, more of an ambient atmosphere.
33 Thatcherism had seen the first concerted political opposition, ideological opposition to the way the BBC in particular was seen to run itself and to behave. The administration was perhaps getting its revenge on the BBC for its perceived participation in, and promulgation of, the poisonous ethos of the 1960s. Liberalism, permissive media encroachments on decency, disrespectful satire, outright socialistic dramas and documentaries were all cited as proof of the BBC's undemocratic doctrinaire partiality. The trick was conceived in which the BBC could be blamed for being at one and the same time old-fashioned, stuck in the mud, reactionary, elitist, hidebound, de haut en bas, patriarchal, top/down, patronising and simultaneously left-wing, trendy, bien pensant and unpatriotic, because radical now meant right-wing. Modern and progressive meant consumer-led and market-oriented. The Tebbits and the Thatchers of this world were not about to allow intellectuals, artists, liberals and Oxbridge nomenclatura of decadent self-appointed cultural apparatchiks to decide what was good for the public. The nanny state was bad enough in their eyes but the schoolmaster state, the don state was even worse.
34 I grew up in what seems now to me and to most cultural and broadcast historians to have been a golden age in television.
35 Just as I was leaving prison, starting simultaneously my period on probation and at University, the way you do, the wind changed and Margaret Thatcher, the new Mary Poppins, descended into Downing Street, with new medicines for us to take, but very few spoonfuls of sugar to help them go down. I am not going to blame her or make political points. The wind had changed and she blew in with it and would one day be blown away by another change. But here she was and fundamental questions were asked, genuinely radical unthinkable thoughts were thought in an age of privatisation and anti-dirigiste, anti-statist conservatism.
36 John Cleese said to me years ago that "you will never be happy unless you stop being so polite. I have spent much of my life trying to please people, trying to be what they wanted me to be rather than what I actually wanted to be.
37 Although, of course, anybody can talk about snouts in troughs, and go on about it, for journalists to do so is almost beyond belief, beyond belief. I know lots of journalists; I know more journalists than I know politicians. And I've never met a more venal and disgusting crowd of people when it comes to expenses and allowances.
38 The week before we moved house, the BBC started a new drama, starring William Hartnell. An old man had a police phone box of the kind we saw in the street all the time. It turned out to be a magical and unimaginably wonderful time machine. I had never been so excited in all my life. (On Doctor Who (1963))
39 The BBC enriches the country in ways we will only discover when it has gone and it is too late to build it back up again. We actually can afford the BBC, because we can't afford not to. I genuinely cannot see that the nation would benefit from a diminution of any part of the BBC's great whole. It should be as closely scrutinized as possible of course, value for money, due humility and all that, but to reduce its economies of scale, its artistic social and national reach for misbegotten reasons of ideology or thrift would be a tragedy.
40 It is true that I have a great admiration, sometimes only just short of reverence, for the elegances and brilliances that have emerged from my favourite address in the world: 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California, the home of Apple Computers.
41 Digital devices rock my world.
42 Of course, it would be unfair for me to comment. Douglas (Douglas Adams) told me in the strictest confidence exactly why 42. The answer is fascinating, extraordinary and, when you think hard about it, completely obvious. Nonetheless amazing for that. Remarkable really. But sadly I cannot share it with anyone and the secret must go with me to the grave. Pity, because it explains so much beyond the books. It really does explain the secret of life, the universe, and everything. (On the meaning of 42 in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005))
43 I've always believed Americans have one huge, ready-made gift when it comes to acting in front of a camera - the ability to relax. Take the supreme relaxed authenticity of a James Stewart or a George Clooney compared with the brittle contrivances of a Laurence Olivier or a Kenneth Branagh, marvelous as they are.
44 Generally, we admire the thing we are not. On the set of Bones (2005) I have been amazed and impressed by the naturalness of the cast, and berate myself for sounding as if I'm speechifying instead of talking.
45 When American TV and movies call for a twist of limey in their cocktail, it's usually a character they're after - supervillain, emotionally constipated academic, effete eccentric, that kind of thing.
46 I sometimes wonder if you Americans aren't often fooled by our accent into detecting a brilliance that may not really be there.
47 As someone who worked hard for a Labour victory in the Nineties, do I regret it? Not really. It was bound to happen. And it'll happen with the next government, and the one after it. Because all governments serve us. They serve the filth.
48 My father was all brain and little heart.
49 "Complete loose-stool-water. Arse-gravy of the very worst kind." (Speaking about Dan Brown's novel, "The Da Vinci Code.")
50 "Comedy always goes up and down but this year's been great. Comedy is immensely strong right now, with the Green Wing (2004) and Nighty Night (2004)." (Speaking in 2005)
51 It only takes a room of Americans for the English and Australians to realise how much we have in common.
52 On being gay: "My first words, as I was being born... I looked up at my mother and said, 'that's the last time I'm going up one of those.'"
53 It is quite difficult to feel that I am placed somewhere between Alan Bennett and the Queen Mother, a sort of public kitten.
54 How can one not be fond of something that the "Daily Mail" despises?
