He’s known for his love of Twitter, so it’s no surprise that the social networking site basically imploded when Stephen Fry announced his sudden departure on Thursday.
The star sent his followers a rather cryptic message before signing off until DECEMBER… sparking speculation that he was off to film a rather exciting, secret project.
WE NEED TO KNOW, STEPHEN!
Stephen, who’s usually pretty darn prolific with his tweets, decided to sign off for the next few weeks, leaving his dedicated fans baffled.
He wrote: “Closing down on Twitter while filming. In a place whence I’ve been advised it is safest not to tweet. See you December. Here goes…”
Yeah… we need way more info than that, Stephen!
While some fans thought that he might be going to shoot a documentary in a war zone, others thought that he might be making a rather intereting cameo.
“I’m taking that as code for, “I’m in the new Star Wars movie!!!” one user wrote.
Another added: “I bet it’s Star Wars, and they’ve cast you as a flamboyant enterpreneur selling Bocce thesaurii.”
Some crazy kids even seemed to think that he might be joining Gemma Collins in the I’m A Celeb Jungle CAN YOU IMAGINE?!
We had a *little* inking that he might be making a little cameo in Downton Abbey, since Julian Fellowes is VERY strict about no tweeting during filming.
But Stephen has been very *ahem* vocal with his feelings about the show, writing in his most recent book:
“The excellent balance of ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ stands up very well against the ghastly snobbery and tacked-on noblesse oblige of that horrible Abbey programme.”
Adding: “I say this guiltily, having actor friends I like very much who play in it, and play excellently, but truth must out.”
Hmm – could this all just be one mega-bluff? George Clooney is doing it after all!
