Hugh Laurie says goodbye to House

Hugh Laurie and his co-stars have said farewell to hit US show House at a glitzy wrap party for the long-running medical drama.

The British actor - who played brilliant but troubled Dr Gregory House for eight years - was joined by his co-stars including Odette Annable, Amber Tamblyn, Omar Epps, Jesse Spencer, Peter Jacobson, Charlyne Yi and Robert Sean Leonard at the bash at Cicada in Los Angeles.

It was announced earlier this year that the award-winning series would be ending its run this season and Hugh has admitted saying goodbye to the role has been "very emotional".

He told Zap2it: "Generally speaking, I'm pretty hopeless at goodbyes and I'm mostly not very good at hellos, either. I think I'm all right with the in-between stuff, but this is a very long, protracted goodbye to a character and to about 300 people I've worked with for eight years.

"This has been very emotional, and it continues to be."

Earlier this week Odette, who played Dr Jessica Adams, tweeted: "That's a wrap folks. House... I'll miss you..."

The final episode is due to air across the pond next month.
