Stephen Fry to shift from Britain to US

London, Feb 17 (IANS) Comedian Stephen Fry has announced that he will soon be shifting from Britain to US.

The 58-year-old is “applying for a green card”, which is the legal process for hopeful candidates to become a lawful and permanent resident of US, and will move with his partner Elliott Spencer, reports

“We’re moving to Los Angeles and I’m applying for a green card. We’re excited about having a new base,” Fry told The Sun newspaper.

The news comes following the backlash Fry received on Twitter after his stint as BAFTA host on Sunday during which he made a gag at the expense of his friend Jenny Beavan – calling her a “bag lady” – as she collected her award for Costume Design for her work on “Mad Max: Fury Road”.

Fry went on to the micro blogging site to inform the irate web mob that he and Beavan are old friends and she was in on the joke, but after his explanation fell on deaf ears he quit the social networking site.

Fry married Spencer, who is a comedian, last year and the duo currently live in Norfolk, England.
