Laurie: House's dignity intact

Hugh Laurie has revealed he's pleased to have come to the end of House with the show's "dignity intact".

The British star has been playing abrasive Dr Gregory House for eight seasons but the medical series comes to an end this month.

He said: "I feel a huge satisfaction that we got to the end with our dignity intact.

"I never felt that we did anything that wasn't true to the character or the show - like, 'House gets a puppy.' I think that's quite an achievement."

Although he is saying goodbye to the character, Hugh joked that he could back if "someone comes up with an idea for a stage musical".

House famously walked with a limp and Hugh revealed that he chose which leg to limp on.

"I tried it various ways, including limping with BOTH legs, but that was just ungainly," he laughed. "Then I settled on the right leg. But I have always wondered whether, if I switched legs for an episode, anyone would notice."

The last episode of House will air in the US on Monday May 21.
