Stephen Fry - Stephen Fry Suffers Asthma Scare

Actor Stephen Fry was forced to interrupt a press screening on Thursday (22Nov12) when he suffered an asthma attack.

The British funnyman was at the media event in London when he started to experience breathing problems, and had to ask guests around him for help.

He later took to his Twitter.com page to tell followers about the scare, writing, "Just had a surprise asthma attack at a screening. Got up to ask if anyone had an inhaler: so many hands went up. Saved!"
