Artículo en el Tagesanzeiger de Zurich (Suiza) del 9-5-12.

Está en alemán, no os asustéis. Lo traduciré cuando termine con todos los que me quedan pendientes- No sé cuándo estará, pero algún día estará traducido. I promise!


Der Detektiv und die nackte Frau

Benedict Cumberbatch: Er kehrt zurück als Sherlock Holmes. Wieder mit Handy. Und neu als Sexsymbol.

Er ist gross, schlank und marmorbleich, seine Aussprache sitzt wie ein Anzug, und für den Blick seiner graublauen Augen bräuchte er einen Waffenschein. Er versprüht die dosierte Selbstironie, ohne die man in England nicht weit kommt. Er ist gebildet und gescheit, er hat Charme, er hat Erfolg.

Seit Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch in der BBC-Serie «Sherlock» die moderne Variante des viktorianischen Detektivs spielt, Sherlock 2.0 sozusagen, ist er sogar weltberühmt. Der Londoner Schauspieler gibt den Ermittler als schnell denkenden, kühlen Soziopathen, seltsam geschlechtslos und zugleich leidenschaftlich bis zur Wahnbildung, wenn er einem Fall nachgeht. Letzteres verspürte man in den ersten beiden Staffeln auch als Zuschauer (die ARD zeigt die zweite ab Mitte Mai).

Trotz aller Auftritte, Lobpreisungen und Quoten wird der Gefeierte nicht froh. Denn das Publikum schliesst von seinen Rollen auf seine Person zurück: «Ich werde entweder als fahler, abgehobener, neurotischer Intellektueller eingesetzt oder als androgyner Typ, in anderen Worten: als schlechter Liebhaber», klagt Cumberbatch. Dabei sei er das genaue Gegenteil, versichert er: «I am a fucking fantastic lover.»

Angeboten, nicht aufgezwungen

Letzteres lässt sich nicht überprüfen, zu Ersterem hat der 35-Jährige einiges beigetragen. Bevor Cumberbatch Sherlock wurde, spielte er unter anderem den Astrophysiker Stephen Hawking, den Mathematiker Stephen Ezard, den Premierminister William Pitt und, abwechselnd, den Doktor Frankenstein oder das von ihm erschaffene Monster. Seit der Sherlockwerdung hat er sich als Geheimdienstoffizier Peter Guillam empfohlen und ist für die Rolle von Khan Noonien Singh vorgesehen, einem Übermenschen aus der «Startrek»-Serie.

Nun werden Rollen angeboten oder ausgeschrieben, aber nicht aufgezwungen. Und wer solche Typen spielt, darf sich nicht wundern, wenn er in den dazugehörigen Filmen überdurchschnittlich häufig einsam, irr oder mit Hornbrille herumläuft und relativ wenig Zeit in Frauen verbringt.

Also gönnt man dem Schauspieler die gestrige Nachricht, dass ihn die Leser und vor allem die Leserinnen der britischen Boulevardzeitung «The Sun» zum attraktivsten Mann gewählt haben. Und dazu noch mit der doppelten Zahl von Stimmen, die dem Zweitplatzierten zufielen. Benedict Cumberbatch erhielt über 7000 Stimmen, Fussballer David Beckham nicht einmal 3500.

Konfuser Sherlock

Macht Intelligenz also erotisch? Irène Adler ist davon überzeugt. Und das will etwas heissen. Denn sie ist nicht nur die einzige Frau, für die Sherlock Holmes so etwas wie Gefühle entwickelt. Sie ist auch einer der wenigen Menschen, die ihm intellektuell überlegen sind. Beides bekommt man in der ersten Folge der zweiten «Sherlock»-Staffel vorgeführt, wo Miss Adler (Lara Pulver) als Domina arbeitet, die englische Regierung erpresst und Sherlock Holmes verwirrt. Schon bei der ersten Begegnung tritt sie ihm nackt gegenüber. Und durchschaut ihn so leicht, als habe auch er nichts an. Er stottert, sie lächelt. Er fuchtelt, sie entkommt. Er sucht sie, sie narrt ihn.

Benedict Cumberbatch spielt den konfusen Sherlock mit Bravour. Sein liebhaberisches Talent aber kann der Schauspieler auch hier nicht demonstrieren. Als Miss Adler mit der Reitgerte auf Sherlock losgeht, fällt dieser erst zu Boden und dann ins Bett. Allein. Bewusstlos.

Artículo (más bien "diario de viaje") en The Standard del 25-11-11 de cuando Benedict estuvo en las Seychelles en 2011

Holiday Holmes: Benedict Cumberbatch in the Seychelles

Nestled off the coast of East Africa, the Seychelles lie firmly within the tropics, jewels of green in an otherwise aquamarine expanse of Indian Ocean. They are famed for their beautiful beaches; the white sand, palm trees and rounded black granite rocks make the islands the very definition of paradise. And once I heard that this was the destination of choice for Wills and Kate's honeymoon... well, how could I argue with royalty?

Approaching the island, I found myself doing my best Lord Attenborough impression: 'Welcome to Jurassic Park!' The darker ocean gives way to the sparkling turquoise of the shoreline and the famed white beaches, behind which endless tropical vegetation stretches back to the foothills of immense granite mountains. The sight was intoxicating. In the early morning the first thing that hit me was the humidity and smell, both alien and alluring, a reminder (as if I needed one) that I really was far from home.

My hillside pool villa at the Banyan Tree Seychelles resort on the south-west coast of the island of Mahé opened on to a decked terrace with an infinity plunge pool and Jacuzzi, all perched on top of the rocks and surrounded by trees, with an uninterrupted view over the ocean. Through a shuttered sliding door lay a bathroom with a sunken tub perfectly positioned for a romantic stargazing bath for two. Everything in the resort was geared for honeymoon levels of smooching romance. I quickly learned a basic but crucial lesson: never come to paradise alone.

Anything you could possibly need, from maps, to guides, carhire, a doctor, suggested evening hangouts and excursions, the resort staff will happily arrange. But you won't want to venture far without first trying the epic breakfasts (every type of fruit, juice, pastry, cold meat, cooked breakfast, curry and local speciality you can imagine). The main reason I was in the Seychelles was for some serious R and R, so my first appointment was for a signature Thai massage. Reclining, post-treatment on the spa veranda as the sun set was one of those moments of tranquillity where I couldn't believe my luck. Then, as if it couldn't have got any better, I saw my first fruit bat. Those things are prehistorically big: 'Welcome to Jurassic park... again!' Suddenly, the air seemed to fill with 'flying foxes' as they are known locally, waking up for their evening feeding session - and later providing the vital service of shitting all over the islands, therefore ensuring plant dispersement.

As the stars rose I drifted down to the beach for a swim in a haze of post-massage calm. As I bobbed around, some of the bats broke off for a dip in the sea. Surrounded by all this magic I did a length of the bay and by the time I stepped out of the shallows the bioluminescence of tiny plankton lit up every movement of my body through the water. It's impossible to do the experience justice in words but it was one that I repeated most evenings. I rounded off the day with dinner at one of the three in-house restaurants. It was fish night, with scallops, bouillabaisse, and job fish (a filling, fleshy fish) on the menu, followed by white chocolate parfait with passion fruit jelly, raspberry jus and dark chocolate. Out of this world and reasonably priced.

I was keen to get my flippers on, even though I had been told that a particularly hot El Niño in the 1990s had done substantial damage to the sea life and coral. But I wanted to find out for myself, so the following morning, having overslept, I rushed off with a Tupperware container of breakfast (the smiling resourcefulness of the dining staff was one of the best aspects of my stay). With my Panama hat and Hawaiian shirt, I was a cliché of the hapless Brit abroad, so no wonder a loitering man who looked like a well-tanned walrus gave a smoky laugh: 'Didn't want to you miss your breakfast, then?' Leo, a Dutchman, flashed a smile and my diving adventures on Mahé began.

The joy of being out on the ocean and my first view of the dramatic coastline was transfixing. We headed for a site called Adam's Apple, named for the rock that marks the dive spot. Diving is like meditation: the serenity of the weightlessness, the buoyancy that enables you to swim with the fish , the noise of the slow inhaling and exhaling of pressurised air, the fascinating landscape of coral and rock on the seabed, and the inhabitants of this otherworldly space. Over the next couple of days I swam with giant barracudas, white-tipped reef sharks, humphead parrot fish, chocolate dips, lobsters, turtles, angel fish and stingrays. For my money, the variety of dive sites and sea life in the Seychelles is on a par with both Cuba and Mozambique.

After that I rented a car (the smallest I could find to try to avoid being hit by the careering local buses) and asked for directions to a good local beach. Everyone I met was friendly and willing to help, but some of the directions weren't very reliable. After a winding descent past waterfalls I broke through the cool shade of the forest canopy and the most beautiful golden sunshine afternoon spread before me. Glaud Bay is the most quintessentially laid-back Seychellois experience, a tiny village boasting little more than a church and a bar. After a dip I kicked back with a beer, a plate of delicious grilled fish and a killer creme caramel in the warm sunshine and surveyed the bay, with Bob Marley singing on the radio. Everything felt like it was gonna be alright.

On my way back I stopped at Maria's Rock Café. It's an oddity that must be experienced, a Dali-esque raft built around a granite outcrop and littered with some pretty racy sculptures. The lovely staff, headed by the ever-smiling Maria, bring ingredients for you to cook at your table on paraffin-candle heated rocks. Once the oil starts smoking, you chuck on prawns and chicken and whatever else takes your fancy. The mixture of surf and turf is fresh and, with generous portions of homemade relishes your appetite is the only guide to how much and how quickly the food should be eaten. It's full-on, sweaty, sticky-fingered fun and definitely a child-friendly experience (although you might have to avert their eyes from the more explicit artworks and ask the artist responsible, Maria's Italian boyfriend, not to perform his more risqué magic tricks).

Before I knew it my time at Banyan Tree was up and I saddled up onto a local charter flight that took me straight to my next stop, the island of Praslin. I was to stay at La Reserve resort at the invitation of Peter Mountford, the charming British manager who took over the running of the hotel from his parents, only to be saddled with the unenviable task of rebuilding the whole resort after the 2004 tsunami. He gave me a few home truths about running a hotel in the Seychelles. The daily headache seems to be trying to accommodate the demands of Western diets at the breakfast buffet; apparently fights can break out over boxes of kiwis and other non-indigenous fruits at the local market.

I took off for a day-trip around the nearby island of La Digue. There are regular ferries and once there all you need to get around are your two feet and a rented bike - the tiny island's 2,000 inhabitants are only too helpful with directions and a smile. Following the path to the beaches of Anse Source d'Argent you realise why they are often voted the best in the world: a series of small, golden coves separated by gigantic granite boulders weathered into the most extraordinary shapes by time. Sheltered by a reef, the sea is shallow and calm, perfect for snorkelling and sunbathing. But even in paradise it seems there are possessive tourists with towels and even later in the day there was a race to find a perfect spot. As I basked, a French beauty and her friends passed by, snapping photographs as they went. It was only as her beautiful bottom wiggled out of view that I realised it was in fact Emmanuelle Bé art.

Back on Praslin, I hired a car to explore, stopping for roadside fruit juices, curried fish, a few final night swims and a day-trip to see the deliciously rude coco de mer nut and catch a rare glimpse of a native black parrot. The trek through the well-labelled reservation is best done at an amble as the humidity climbs while you navigate the steep, airless paths. But it is fascinating.

I spent a lazy final day on Anse Lazio beach and with that my time was up. The Seychelles is a paradise on earth and the islanders and their smiling welcome will ensure that you will never want to leave. But don't panic, you can always return. I know I will.

Artículo de hoy 3-8-12 en The Sun sobre Parade's End.

Christopher is not just another toff in a period drama ... he’s truly heroic

Benedict Cumberatch praises Parade's End role

SHERLOCK star Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed his latest telly role is the toughest yet, saying: “He’s not just another toff in a period drama.”
Benedict is playing accidental hero Christopher Tietjens in a BBC2 adaptation of the Ford Madox Ford classic Parade’s End, which screens this autumn.
The actor told how the part of “fat blockhead” Tietjens tested him to his limits — before he realised that no one had read the book.
He said: “I have such a huge affection for Christopher — more so than almost any other character I’ve played.
“He’s not just another toff in a period drama.
“I sympathise with his care, his sense of duty and virtue, his intelligence in the face of hypocritical, self-serving mediocrity and his love for his country. That is what leads me to love this fat, baggy bolster of a blockhead.
“It’s what distinguishes him from being yet another toff to being quietly but truly heroic.
“But playing him was really hard to begin with. I couldn’t get past certain things. He is a big Yorkshireman and I was really distracted by that.
“I didn’t understand who he was. I knew coming straight from Sherlock I couldn’t just eat myself into the role — not within the space of a week.
“I really was at sea. But in a way the role is a blank canvas. It isn’t like playing other well-known leads because it is one of the great book series most people haven’t read.”
The drama follows a love triangle between Tietjens, his wife Sylvia, played by Rebecca Hall, and suffragette Valentine, played by Adelaide Clemens. Benedict, who will be returning in a new series of Sherlock opposite Martin Freeman, told how he was marked for the role THREE years before he was asked.
Benedict, who played Major Jamie Stewart in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse, said: “I had never worked with Sir Tom Stoppard, who adapted Parade’s End for TV but I met him on the set of War Horse.
“He kept on looking at me sideways and he said to me, ‘You’ve had such a wonderful, extraordinary year, Benedict’. It was lovely, but odd.
“He confessed later that all he could see was Tietjens and he wanted to give me the role there and then — and he’d thought of me two years before that.”
He added: “Rebecca is extraordinary as Sylvia. I have never worked opposite an actress who has such an extraordinary command of her character.
“She is mesmerising to watch. And we have been friends for ten years. Having her on set was another reason to pinch myself that I’m paid to do this.”
While filming the drama, Benedict visited Ypres and the Western Front in Belgium and he was deeply affected by the area.
He said: “When I got into the trench created for Parade’s End with one of those tin hats on, I realised you’re standing basically in a grave.
“Everything above you is exploding and anything over the edge is death. With the tin trench helmet on you hardly see any sky.
“The practicality of just moving around was hard enough and you’re supposed to be a fighting machine. Going up a ladder knowing you are walking into gunfire goes against every instinct of what it is to be a human being.”
Benedict is confident the drama has huge resonance for a modern audience.
He said: “We’re living through a time where we are fighting wars with equally tragic realities for our soldiers and their families.
“We are living in time of political hypocrisy and there aren’t that many really good people.
“And Christopher is just that — a good man.”

Informe sobre la Sherlock Masterclass del Festival de Edinburgh del 24-8-12 (con Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue y Andrew Scott)

Fuente: Sherlockology

[Tienes que estar registrado y conectado para ver este vínculo]

August 24 2012 was a hugely successful day at the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival for Sherlock, seeing a fantastic and informative Masterclass panel, the unveiling of the first hints of possible plotlines for Series Three, and two more awards to add the ever growing collection at Hartswood Films.

Read on for our in-depth write up of the Masterclass panel and the Awards wins, though please note we have summarised much of what was said to avoid any misquoting.

Held annually since 1976 as part of the Edinburgh Festival, the MGEITF 2012 took place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), and attracted well over 2000 delegates for its wide range of seminars, Masterclasses, and Networking opportunities. As the showpiece event of the middle day of the three day event, the Sherlock Masterclass promised an insight into the creation of the series and a look to its future from Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, Sue Vertue and Andrew Scott, and it certainly delivered.

Starting at 15:30BST, the Masterclass opened with a new super-trailer from BBC Worldwide featuring all six episodes, re-edited out of order and for maximum dramatic effect. Immediately afterwards, the panel chair Boyd Hilton introduced Sue Vertue, Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Andrew Scott to the stage to thunderous applause. Boyd began by asking about the well-known genesis of Sherlock as a series, with the now famous story of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss talking about a modern day version of the characters whilst on a train to Cardiff. Steven said the conversation basically consisted of a checklist of the original stories that could be transferred to the modern day, as well as other elements such as the war in Afghanistan and John Watson writing a blog, but at the time it was just simply non-serious gossip to pass the time. It was only on mentioning it to Sue Vertue that the idea came under serious consideration, and then it was chiefly under the desire to avoid the inevitable annoyance when someone else made a modern day version and they had not.

From this simple idea came big things of course. The unexpected size of the series caught everyone by surprise as they had thought it would be smaller. The discussion turned to the production of the sixty minute pilot and an intention of six episodes of that length, and the success of Wallander that led to three ninety minute episodes instead. Sue recounted a conversation she had on the phone to Mark and Steven, that if they said yes to the three episode format it would be an instant commission by the BBC. Steven said Paul McGuigan was the major difference between the pilot and the final series, bringing a distinctive visual style, but the pilot was also put into research and test screenings to find out what other changes could be made. The major information to emerge was a desire for Moriarty to become an element of the series, as he was unplanned in the original version. Steven said they were unsure if Moriarty was something everyone knew about - and the research revealed he was, even though he only appears in one original story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. To close out this section of the discussion, Mark jokingly noted that the most major flaw with the pilot "is Mycroft isn't in it."

The panel then moved onto the casting of the actors. For Benedict Cumberbatch, Steven and Sue were simply watching Atonement one night and came across his 'amazing creepy villain' performance in the film, with Steven realising "Oh he could be Sherlock Holmes!" As Sue recounted, he was exactly as Steven had described, being "Tall, thin, angular" and had, as Steven said,"an impressive nose!"They mentioned the idea to Mark, who already knew Benedict and he agreed. They recorded a screen test with Benedict in Beryl Vertue's flat, which was sent to the BBC with the proviso there was no point carrying on with the project unless they agreed with his casting. With Martin Freeman, it was simply evident he was John Watson as soon as he and Benedict read together, as the pair had an instant chemistry. Mark put it best in typically amusing fashion with"There's the show. Plus, he's short!"On Louise Brealey as Molly Hooper, Steven said they had never intended to introduce an original character not in the books as a regular, but having seen her perform simply had to keep including her.

Since Andrew Scott was present on stage, much talk was dedicated to the creation of his version of Moriarty, with some interesting revelations. In the original version of The Great Game, the intention was just for him to appear as 'Gay Jim' in his earlier appearance at St Bart's Hospital, with the revelation of his identity just being a message left at the swimming pool at the conclusion. What became the final pool scene dialogue was actually written as an audition, and was what Steven described as a 'ridiculous and nonsensical' scene, but one that once Andrew had auditioned with it became their favourite scene from the entire first series, and was thus included at the end of the episode.

Andrew said he was very aware that he was not the first person people would think of as Moriarty, being both non-obvious casting and a non-obvious version of the villain, and very much not a copycat of previous interpretations. He said it was often a mistake to think that just because you don't look like a character doesn't mean you can't carry the essence of the character. He said he loved that the script was audacious and theatrically written, and though the success couldn't be predicted he had a sense it would be very special. Though once it had aired, Andrew jokingly said that he went online to see reactions and it was the greatest lesson ever. "Twitter is like going into a room and being punched, and then kissed, and then hugged, and then complimented 'oh I really love your tie'."

Mark compared their version of Moriarty to Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, where the character is onscreen for around sixteen minutes but it feels as if he dominates the entire film as he is spoken about throughout it, and just like Andrew effectively stole the show. They were very keen to 'rescue' the character of Moriarty, as he is traditionally portrayed as grave and physically stooped, and redefine him as, as Steven had noted before, 'he was the original super-villain.' Steven also said how excited they were once the series began screening and went so big, so fast "as there's one guy who hasn't come on yet!" On Series Two, there was never a conscious decision to go bigger than the first, they simply couldn't help it, and while the original plan was to save Reichenbach for the conclusion of a third series, they eventually decided to include the three most famous stories in the second.

The panel then broke to move onto the next section, which began with the scene from The Hounds of Baskerville where John finds himself locked inside the laboratory, played on the big screen. Mark said the scene started life in a totally different way. He wanted to write a suspense sequence into the script, and originally set it inside a meat locker freezer, as that was something he felt hadn't been seen before, and Sue even went through the stages of recceing locations. However due to various issues it fell through, and instead Mark rewrote the scene while sat on the large Baskerville lab set to have it occur in that location. Paul McGuigan suggested that the scene open with the blasting bright light and claxons, to give a sense of sensory overload. Steven said in contrast to those changes, the scene of Henry Knight reacting to his overactive security light was very precisely plotted in the script by Mark. Talk turned to the now famous Mind Palace sequence, and all confirmed it had grown out of Paul McGuigan's ideas from Series One, where Paul had invented the floating text idea while filming The Great Game (the first episode to be shot) while Steven was writing A Study in Pink, and he in turn ran with it. The moment where Sherlock mimics Elvis Presley was invented by Benedict Cumberbatch. Neither Steven or Mark were originally intending to write The Hounds of Baskerville, but Mark kept gravitating towards it, despite it ending up 'a complete bitch' to write. Mark said the original Conan Doyle novel is an intractable story, "as in the end it's just a big dog with paint on it" that makes little narrative sense. Steven followed on with "Why does anybody do any of this? He decides to kill somebody so he gets a giant dog. WHY?"

The SHERLOCKED scene from A Scandal in Belgravia was then played, and discussion turned to the casting of Lara Pulver as Irene Adler. Steven noted that, on the page as he had written her, Irene could be seen as quite 'awful', but Lara brought a sense of fun to the role. Mark described her audition tape that she had sent from Los Angeles, and she appeared to not be wearing any clothes in it, which led to much hilarity on stage and in the auditorium. The character also brought up discussion of the investment of Sherlock fans in the series, with Steven noting that that is "the mark of a show that is making a mark." Irene Adler is the dangerous one, but describing the clip just shown, Steven said that you couldn't tell if Sherlock was really in love with her, "but he was certainly fascinated by her." Steven also complimented composer Michael Price, who was sat next to us, for the amazing music in the scene.

Following on from that, discussion turned more towards the fan investment in the series. Steven said they thought the show would be good, with maybe four million viewers and an obscure award at a Polish festival, but instead it was a sudden, enormous hit with a constant escalation of ownership, engagement, extrapolation and creation of material, almost like fifty years of Doctor Who distilled into ninety minutes. Mark said despite some reactions, they couldn't make the series for anyone but themselves, and Steven said that Sherlock as series was basically their own fan fiction. He said that despite it sounding sentimental, the series was born out of their own love for the original material, and they wouldn't mind if nobody watched just as long as they could carry on making it for each other. They also recounted the "sheer joy" of the moment they had a 221B of their own, as well as stepping from that set and immediately being able to walk onto the TARDIS - "It's a map of our brains!"

The ending of The Great Game and the opening of A Scandal in Belgravia were then played on the big screen, and it's fascinating to see them at such a scale with a large audience again, as even now, around ten months since we first saw Scandal, the moment when Moriarty's phone rings and the subsequent dialogue afterwards still brings gigantic gales of laughter inside a large auditorium. Boyd asked if they had known how to solve the cliffhanger when they shot it, which led Sue to wryly state "That would have been a lot more convenient." Steven reaffirmed it was written without them knowing the series would be recommissioned, and "we were just being cheeky", and Mark and Andrew said how strange it was the recreate the setting again eighteen months later. The actual resolution itself came out of Steven noticing how frenetic some of the theorising was becoming, as he realised that now they would have to do something quite good now, and the use of the ringing phone came from Sue telling him about a news story where the BeeGees' 'Stayin' Alive' suddenly began playing from a phone inside a coffin at a funeral.

In turn, Boyd asked if they knew how the ending of The Reichenbach Fall would be resolved, to which Steven answered with an emphatic YES - "unless we decide to change it." Mark said they would again have to go back and recreate some material from Series Two for the resolution. Boyd asked Andrew directly if he knew how the ending would be resolved, and Andrew simply replied "I do" with an excellent, stonewalling poker face. On the theories, Mark said how "incredibly byzantine, funny and elaborate" many of them are, but he made an interesting point that since the episode is possibly only watched the once by many in the audience, the resolution couldn't hinge on an element that could only be seen by pausing and enlarging a small section of the screen! Mark also commented on the theory that Moriarty can't be dead as you don't see the back of his head come off, but that was simply due to the fact that that is a level of violence unacceptable on British television at nine thirty at night.

That in turn led Andrew to state "Moriarty is dead." Which led to Steven jokingly saying "Unless we change our minds!"

The end of the panel led element of the Masterclass was nearly done, but after a question from Boyd on any further comment on Elementary that everyone refused to be drawn on, there was one final thing to reveal, aside from Mark joking "Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson will return." The Three Words that hint at the plot content of Series Three, deliberately "designed to get you into a lather." They were spoken in the following order:

"Rat." - Mark

"Wedding." - Sue

"Bow." - Steven, who clarified the spelling, and vocalisation as the same as 'bough.'

And, as Steven said, "That's all you're getting." Boyd joked that Twitter was now most likely exploding, and that Sherlockology might very well be behind some of that. Sue confirmed again that Series Three will begin filming in January 2013, and aims to be delivered to the BBC in August next year, though as she asked us to reaffirm when we met her later in the day - as her comments had been slightly misconstrued - that delivery date of the finished product is no indication of any broadcast date.

The floor was then opened to audience questions, which began rather inauspiciously with someone who admitted he hadn't even watched Sherlock, disliked the recent films, and wanted to know why he should watch. After a degree of audience hilarity, Steven simply promised "You'll like it, I promise you'll like it." Second was a question on Twitter accounts and websites set up by the creators, where they reaffirmed the only ones from Hartswood and the BBC were the original Whip Hand account and the websites written by Joe Lidster.

The third questioner asked if, since the three most famous Holmes stories had been tackled in Series Two, there was any worry about running out of material later. Mark said that since there are fifty six short stories and four novels they have plenty of material still to draw on, as well as cherry picking bits and pieces to place within a framework of the stories and having the ability to add new material too. They have also decided that other sources are canonical too, and so include material from the Basil Rathebone films and Billy Wilder's 'The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.' He also said that Sherlock's introduction by flogging the corpse was hardly ever done onscreen, and it was tremendously exciting to be able to do that.

The fourth audience question was specifically for Mark, asking whether he preferred writing for the series or acting as Mycroft. After jokingly saying "neither", Mark said the chance to do both was an enormous privilege, but it was also very handy to be able to change a line of dialogue without having to ring someone up on the phone. Sue said that she and Mark are always onset during filming, and she sometimes finds it odd to find him missing - only for Mark to turn up in costume as Mycroft - "Oh, you're in it!" Mark said at the time he was originally auditioning to play former political spin doctor Peter Mandelson in a biographical film with Julie Walters, and Steve Thompson suggested he play Mycroft as a result. He also reaffirmed it was an intentional decision to be uncredited in A Study in Pink to fool the audience into thinking he was playing Moriarty, as otherwise the truth would quickly have come out.

Both the fifth and sixth questions asked about the worldwide feedback for the series and their reaction to it. All spoke about the huge international profile of the characters, with Russia and the Far East being a particularly large audience. Sue also brought up the gap between UK and International broadcast, with the US screening in May having only ten people who hadn't seen the episodes, and the audience at the French launch speaking the lines spoken onscreen aloud. Sue expressed a desire to try and close the gap between broadcasts around the world in future, though we must say that shouldn't be taken as any confirmation it will happen.

The seventh questioner turned out to be presenter Richard Bacon, who attempted to swing proceedings onto the subject of Doctor Who, resulting into a comedic slanging match with Steven who amusingly bellowed "Richard, you're not hosting THIS panel!" following the Series seven launch at the BFI in London the previous week.

The final two questions had a technology focus, with the eighth asking if they were worried about the use of technology dating the series - to which Mark noted Holmes was always a man of technology in the original stories - and the ninth and last question asking about online blogs and criticism, with Steven saying he tries to avoid much of it, and Mark saying if you didn't know it was there you would just carry on, and at times it felt akin to eavesdropping on the conversations of others. Sue noted that some of the videos and pictures put out online were fantastic, and Boyd asked Andrew what the most unusual thing he had been ever sent was - and Andrew decided it was a bag of Moriartea.

And with that, that was the end of the Sherlock Masterclass. Boyd Hilton thanked Sue, Steven, Mark and Andrew for the panel and the audience disbanded.

Also, immediately after the panel Steven, Mark and Andrew recorded a shorter Q&A for The Guardian in the main entrance hall of the EICC, and you can [Tienes que estar registrado y conectado para ver este vínculo]. It includes some material from the Masterclass, as well as some new lines of questioning not covered above.

But more was yet to come later in the day at 18:00BST, when we returned to the same auditorium for the Channel of the Year Awards 2012. The awards recognise the increasingly competitive and often challenging market that today's TV companies operate in, celebrate the creative, innovative and commercial solutions that both channels and production companies present, and are voted for by delegates to the Television Festival. Hosted by comedian Jason Bryne, the awards were a freewheeling and comedic affair that saw success for Sherlock in both the categories it was nominated for.

Firstly, the series won Terrestrial Programme of the Year for the second year running. Up against tough competition from Downton Abbey, Educating Essex, Homeland and The Voice, the win provoked possibly the biggest cheer of the ceremony and after striding up onto the stage with Sue and Andrew, Steven and Mark thanked everyone for the 'best award' of the night. Later, Sherlock won again with The Network & Ones to Watch Programme Choice Award, up against Black Mirror, Educating Essex and Homeland, and this time Andrew and Sue collected the award to huge applause.

And so ended what was arguably Sherlock's day at the Edinburgh International Television Festival. After spending some time congratulating Steven, Mark, Sue and Andrew for the award wins, we exited the Conference Centre to find a crowd of people waiting for them to emerge before we headed off for the journey home. As Michael Price, who we had spent much of the day with, rather aptly tweeted later on - '3 words, 2 awards and 1 jolly day'.

Artículo en The London Magazine de octubre de 2012

¿Esa tal Jessica Brinton quién se ha creído que es, llamándole "Cumbie"? Suena tan ridículo como cuando en Parade's End le llamaban Chrissie a su personaje... OMG!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Tell me, why have all the girls and boys fallen in love with Benedict Cumberbatch? There was a moment in the first episode of Tom Stoppard’s Edwardian drama, Parade’s End, when Sylvia, the errant wife of Cumberbatch’s character, Christopher Tietjens, decides to leave her lover and return to her husband.

“Why?”, wailed her horrified lover, wielding a gun in a vain attempt at finding the courage to shoot himself. “Because,” she says, crispily, “he knows everything about everything and it’s the difference between being with a grown man and trying to entertain a schoolboy.”

Sylvia is talking about Tietjens, but, in that simple line, she explains the basis of our strange new crush on the self-described startled meerkat, the hammerhead shark with a head the size and shape of Sid from Ice Age – better known as Benedict Cumberbatch.

When did it happen? The actor, 36, has been knocking around for a while. After an education at Harrow and a year at drama school, parts in Heartbeat, The Other Boleyn Girl and To The Ends Of The Earth have never been hard to come by. Yet a quick straw poll reveals that it was the dominatrix scene in the second series of Sherlock that did it.

Like the sudden appearance of Colin Firth’s Darcy out of the water in his breeches and wet shirt, this clever, complicated, awkward man was suddenly sexual too. “I’ll never forget it for as long as I live,” says one obsessive new fan.

We’d been trying to fancy him for months, of course. Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman’s John Watson have a deep, complex and compelling friendship; so much so, it has given birth to a whole new genre of fan fiction.

But it was more than that. Cumberbatch’s self-control, the gold standard kind that frustrates and delights women, was balanced out by a deep, dark intellect. It’s a reminder – listen up, the cast of Towie – that sexual charisma is all the more potent when a man’s head is somewhere interesting too.

Last year, Cumberbatch split from Olivia Poulet, his girlfriend of 12 years, a successful actress in her own right, although he’s always saying in interviews (despite the recent rumours of a new Russian girlfriend) that he “still loves her to bits”.

Men like Cumbie & Co don’t love just any woman, and beautiful is not enough (even if their girlfriends always are). He expects feisty banter so that he doesn’t have to explain himself twice. And strong women love him back because, behind the stern exterior, his heart’s as soft as butter too (never mistake strength for macho: his first acting job was playing Titania in a school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream).

The poshness is far more nuanced than the rentable version we’ve come to see around us in recent years. Cumberbatch went to Manchester University after Harrow, catching it in the heyday of dance music and the Haçienda. “I needed to be out of the danger of tying a cashmere jumper round my neck,” he has said. “I wanted something a bit more racy, a bit more different, a bit more egalitarian.”

‘Racy’ is said to have given him a kidney infection on more than one occasion, but that’s not a surprise. Here’s a man who grabs life recklessly by the balls. Cumberbatch’s own favourite dinner-party anecdote is the story of the time he and two fellow actors were carjacked in South Africa. He rides a motorbike and gave up a stage role because, “I want to run round a desert shooting guns at aliens and looking like I barely have to take a breath. I’d love to do all that shit!” Does he have shadowy friends in the SAS? We’ll never know about that.

What we do know about is one of the hallmarks of his work, a sense of robust self-denial aligned to the sort of high moral codes that leads a man to marry the broad he may or may not have made pregnant during that knee-trembler on a train. “I stand for monogamy and chastity,” declares Cumberbatch’s character in Parade’s End, proudly and without flinching.

Except wait – are we confusing the man with his roles? Was the actor Paul McGann really Percy Toplis in The Monocled Mutineer? Was Ralph Fiennes actually Count Laszlo de Almásy in The English Patient?

If we are – and yes we are – it’s only because Cumberbatch, both the actor and his work, strikes a note with the times that we cannot afford to ignore. It’s the spectre of a man-type cantering back into view, sweeping aside the baby-faced narcissists such as David Beckham and Peter Andre, just as the world was beginning to look so wobbly.

Welcome Dominic West, Eddie Redmayne and even Bruce Parry: strong, thinking men who might, just might, save the day. These are men who know about real friendship (consider Colin Firth as King George VI and his Australian speech therapist, Lionel Logue; Holmes and Watson). Men for whom real-life success is just the beginning of doing well in the world; and for whom money is a means of pursuing one’s real passions rather than buying a yacht.

Cumberbatch’s intellectual hunger and social conscience – he’s an old-school socialist wrapped up in the body of a gentle Tory – has secured him an ambassadorship of the Prince of Wales’ Trust. Colin Firth’s other job is a not-for-profit film production company, Brightwide. Dan Stevens is editor-at-large of online literary journal, The Junket. Dominic West is preparing to shoot a documentary about an Indian religious festival with Sanskrit scholar Sir Jim Mallinson. Bruce Parry has written a book about what it means to be human.

“I’m interested in art for all,” says Cumbie. “I don’t want it to be only the sons and daughters of Tory MPs who get to see my plays,” summing it all up for the rest of them.

Commercialism has given us a strange legacy: a longing for the graciousness and noblesse oblige bits of the Empire, but with less prejudice and more heart. “ ‘Parade’ stands for a certain way of conducting yourself, a bearing, a stance to do with integrity, dignity and not being swept away by commercialism or nationalism,” says Christopher Tietjens in Parade’s End.

Could The Cumberbatch be that man?

Parade’s End is available on DVD on 1 October. Filming for the third series of Sherlock is due to start in early 2013.

Resumen de Basingstoke Gazette de la aparición de Benedict en el Cheltenham Festival (6-10-12)

REVIEW: Benedict Cumberbatch on Sherlock at the Cheltenham Literary Festival 2012

Benedict Cumberbatch, Cheltenham Literary Festival, Cheltenham Racecourse

THE building was already packed to the rafters with the 2000 fans leaving the JK Rowling event when the 2000 Benedict Cumberbatch devotees began to arrive.

Benedict’s unbelievably brilliant portrayal of Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional sleuth Sherlock Holmes - in Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’s incredible reimagining of the tales for the BBC - was the reason he was at the 2012 literary festival, and there were screams when the actor finally appeared, casually clad in a blue duffel coat.

After warming everyone up with a routine borrowed from Elbow’s Guy Garvey, he took a seat opposite his interviewer on stage, his charming Sherlock co-star Louise Brealey, whose character Molly is in love with the genius detective (and who may have played a key role in aiding him to fake his death at the conclusion of series two). Their sparky chemistry throughout made for a revealing chat, with lots of laughter. Louise even revealed that she’d had countless dreams about the interview, including one where she admitted that she “wet herself on stage and tried to blame it on Benedict”. It was a relief, given Benedict’s recent reticence in interviews after having been misquoted/inadvertently dragged into media storms.

One recurrent topic of the evening was what the third series of Sherlock will be about. The creators have recently revealed three clues, rat, wedding and bow, but will say no more – as will Benedict: “No comment – as I am now used to saying. Nothing. In the past year, what has been extraordinary is that I have met some of the most extraordinary people…and they all ask one question. And I have to say no comment. I can’t tell you. Secrets are a good thing to keep.”

He revealed that his mother hadn’t thought him right for the role initially - “My mum went, ‘You just don’t have the right nose.’ Thank God he [Moffat] picked the right nose!” - and that he hadn’t been sure about the project until he read the script: “I heard about it…and was rather dubious about how cute it could be and an excuse to make money. And then I read the script and was blown away by it. It was so funny and so fast paced and at the heart of it was this friendship.”

The role is, he said, “such a rich gift for an actor. [Arthur Conan Doyle] makes the ordinary extraordinary… and Watson is the audience being dragged through. It’s about the thrill of the relationship. It’s been copied…I hate the word sidekick – I’m sure Martin [Freeman, who plays Watson to Benedict’s Sherlock] does too. It’s a double act.”

There was effusive praise for Martin from Benedict – he recalled that when they first read together, “I felt my game go up. He can ground this extraordinary extravagant character” - and for the pair from Louise, who revealed that she’d been frightened by how good they were at the first script reading: “it felt like you were both already there.”

And there were very warm words for his Frankenstein collaborator Jonny Lee Miller, who is now to play Sherlock for American television in the series Elementary, with Lucy Liu in the Watson role. Several American sites claimed Benedict had been critical of his friend’s decision to accept the role.
Benedict said: “Under no circumstances would I want Jonny to have anything but rip roaring success. First and foremost he is my friend – it would be pathetic. I made a joke, which doesn’t translate when written (something I’ve learned this summer). I’ve seen him and it’s fantastic. It’s really good and you should all watch it. He’s stunning to watch – he really knows what he’s doing. He asked if I was alright with it – I said of course I am. Don’t take me out of context. Lucy Liu is wonderful – it’s another great relationship.”

There were also revelations that he’d corpsed during a production of Hedda Gabler when a woman’s stifled sneeze became ‘apoo’ instead of achoo – “I was crying with laughter. I could not speak” – and he talked about his own education at Harrow (his old head teacher was in the audience), his gratitude to his parents for working so hard to pay for it, and his frustration at yet another media blow-up.

Referring to ‘tall poppy syndrome’ wherein those who rise to fame are knocked down to earth by a harsh media, he said: “This summer I’m poster boy for anti posh bashing, I’m some sort of voicepiece for poshness. One of the reasons I got involved in acting is to be free of that.”

There was also loud approval from the audience when he mentioned his forthcoming charitable cycle from Buckingham Palace on October 14 in aid of The Prince’s Trust – set up in the year of his birth – and spoke of his passion for its giving a voice and an opportunity to those who might not otherwise be “taken count of.”

He still takes the Tube, likes his motorbike (and the anonymity of the helmet) – “I want to be a human being” – but that he’s sadly beginning to realise that he must “curtail accessibility to remain safe or sane.”

Those who were lucky enough to attend this select gathering will have been wholly enchanted by his intelligence and winning warmth. The ascension of Benedict Cumberbatch’s star is surely set to continue.

Re: Artículos de prensa sobre Benedict Cumberbatch

Mensaje  Mertxines el Lun Oct 08, 2012 1:03 am

Y esto no es un resumen de prensa, pero lo pongo aquí, un resumen de una fan que asistió de público al acto de Benedict en Cheltenham:

To anyone who couldnt make it to Cheltenham to hear Benedict Cumberbatch tonight:

- unfortunately he wasnt allowed to give us any spoilers for season three, but he did say he hoped to bring out a slightly more human side to the character

- when asked about the backstory he imagined for sherlock he said that again, he couldnt say how much it would feature in the series or if there’d be flashbacks (returning to his fallback position of ‘no comment’), but as for his use of it as a tool for playing the part he said he ‘likes to go there sometimes, but it’s a place I like to go by myself’ - obviously a very personal creation and comfort for him

- on crying-on-command he said he tended to draw on the emotions, vulnerabilities and motives of the character he’s playing and noted the importance of delicacy when it comes to balancing those emotions with ones from his own past that he could draw on (and that a certain amount of exhaustion can help sometimes too!)

- on Jonny Lee Miller and his new role in Elementary, he earnestly wished his former co-star well with the production and sought to affirm that any bad remarks in the press were misquoted, fabricated or a case of misinterpreted humour - he thinks the show is ‘fabulous’, loves Jonny’s charisma and presence and really enjoys the reinvention of Watson by Lucy Liu

- the misquotes about Lee Miller prompted him to talk about his recent ‘tall poppy syndrome’ and the problems that can come with increased press attention after taking on larger roles. He said he is now a much more guarded interviewer and conscious of how he comes across, as remarks made with humour are easily misinterpreted by those wishing to draw more attention through (rather minor) scandal

- this also led him to talk about ideas of middle class priviledge and ‘anti-posh bashing’ as he has been talked about by some media as a new spokesman for the posh. He seemed uncomfortable with being put in that position saying that ‘the posh and well-educated are articulate and able to defend themselves - instead of making sweeping generalisations about people we should be focusing on the more important issues surrounding class.’

- when talking about the benefits of fame he mentioned being able to provide a voice for charities and those that didnt have one themselves in the public, mentioning a 40-mile-long cycling trip he is going to take next week from Buckingham Palace for the Prince’s Trust, helping children in Britain who are disadvantaged due to their poor home or school lives.

- he did agree with Loo Brealey’s statement that his look and manner made him well suited to playing the period characters (though she added he of course isnt limited to them), and he responded that it was less him being pigeonholed due to class and more to do with his identification with the characters being so much stronger as he is an ‘old soul’ (a description given to him by a Harrow english teacher during his time there).

- on Parade’s End he said he didnt get a chance to read the books before filming, relying on the script and the trust he placed on his co-stars Rebecca Hall and Adelaide Clemens. After filming began he read the four novels voraciously and ‘fell in love’ with Tietjens, going as far as saying he is the character he most loved playing.

- on preparing for roles he said he’d seen a live autopsy leading up to Frankenstein and spent time depriving himself of sensory prejudices in order to simulate being born again as the monster

- his favourite scene to watch as a viewer and one of his favourites to act as well was the infamous Reichenbach suicide. The side of Sherlock that he got to act as there gave him a chance to find vulnerability and a different kind of emotional depth for the character (even if it was just going through the process imagining how sherlock might create/act out those emotions - actingception?). On auditioning with Martin he said the other actors brought something wonderful and creative to the role but when Martin came in, Benedict’s ‘game went right up’.

And as for the crack moments,

- he forgot to take his jacket off until 45 minutes into the talk, at which point he promptly got up, took of the jacket and danced a little as he moved to unbutton the shirt as well to the sound of many wolfwhistles

- he and loo didnt realise they were being projected onto the screen above them until the Q & A session and Benedict had a minute giggling to himself leaning around the shot and messing with the angles

- Mark Gatiss bought the Sherlock coat for him and he wore it around London before the pilot had aired (something he was sad to say he couldnt repeat now)

Informe de Cheltenham (6-10-12) de Sherlockology:

Benedict Cumberbatch and Louise Brealey at The 2012 Cheltenham Literature Festival

Saturday October 6 2012 saw Sherlock fans travel in their droves to Cheltenham to listen to Louise Brealey interview Benedict Cumberbatch at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on Sherlock Holmes and his role in the television series. In the event, the talk became more focused on Benedict's work and career, but when the discussion was as sparky, funny and entertaining as this that was certainly no bad thing.

When J.K. Rowling, arguably the world's most successful modern author, tells her audience that she is merely the warm up act for Benedict Cumberbatch's session, you can get a sense of the anticipation that was pervading the Centaur building at Cheltenham Racecourse. Emerging onstage to a frankly thunderous reception from the sold out audience of two thousand people, Benedict and Louise were in playful mood from the off, joking that Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, the true Sherlock Holmes experts, weren't attending the talk. This led Benedict to play act shock and confusion, walking around and staring backstage in mock incredulity, before settling down in his seat. Louise noted the next time she would publicly say "I play Molly Hooper" in front of an audience would be during the read through for Sherlock Series Three next year.

While many of the questions covered previously known information, there was a smattering of confirmations and news revealed relating to Sherlock and Benedict's upcoming roles, which we'll get out of the way first:

- Mark Gatiss handed in his first draft of the opening episode of Sherlock Series Three last week - he tweeted about completion of a script that came as a 'physical relief' on Tuesday 2 October.

- Confirmation that Benedict actually owns one of the incredibly rare Belstaff Milford coats, made iconic by his role as Sherlock Holmes. It was a gift from Mark Gatiss after the filming of the original pilot episode of the series in 2009. Benedict joked that he has only worn it the once, hinting that going outside publicly wearing it would make him far too visible.

- There is no truth to the recent tabloid rumours about his role as the lead villain in the proposed 24th James Bond film. Benedict knows nothing about it.

- First news that Benedict has performed motion capture for The Necromancer in The Hobbit trilogy - previously it was only stated that he was voicing the character. This emerged from an expression of his frustration that most media outlets report that he is only providing the voice for Smaug the dragon in the films, whereas he will actually portray the entire physical onscreen performance for the gigantic creature through motion capture, which he performed during an intense couple of days of work in New Zealand earlier in the year.

- Confirming earlier comments, Benedict stated that the one role he would want to play onstage above all others is Hamlet, and he is working to find room in his schedule to make this a reality.

On Sherlock, both Benedict and Louise reaffirmed that they could only offer a healthy 'no comment' when questioned as to how Sherlock survived the drop from St Bart's Hospital during The Reichenbach Fall, with Benedict saying that whether the questioner was Steven Spielberg or any other Steven, he could only offer the same answer. He told an amusing anecdote on playing the character, following an encounter with someone in a pub after the broadcast of the first series. The man had huge appreciation for his performance, but amusingly noted that Benedict had 'stolen' the famous praying hands from others who played the character in the past - though as Benedict noted, Sherlock's famous physical depiction of thinking of course comes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original writing!

Benedict said the version of Sherlock Holmes he was most familiar with while growing up was Jeremy Brett's portrayal in the Granada series, who he knew from a young age, noting the incredibly hawk like and cold quality he brought to the role, and the tragedy of his own life imbuing the character with these elements at such incredible cost. That familiarity led him to initially question the validity of BBC Sherlock before he auditioned, but once he discovered the calibre of those involved behind the scenes he lost any misgivings. He talked about his original audition for the BBC series, which famously took place in Beryl Vertue's flat - with Beryl serving him tea and biscuits in a Mrs Hudson like manner - and his subsequent reading with Martin Freeman where he noted he felt his "game just go right up." He was full of praise for his friend during the talk, noting that he hates the word 'sidekick' and that the pairing is more of a double act, and saying that Martin was actually much quicker in thinking than he was - amusingly Benedict said he was much closer to John Watson in real life, seeing himself as much more of a follower. Louise asked what his favourite part of filming Sherlock was, which Benedict found quite hard to pin down, and instead gave us a list:

- The end of filming a deduction - "a nice belt un-tightening reliever."
- When he gets to run about and have fun and "be a bit of an action hero."
- A nice "rat-a-tat" dialogue scene with Martin
- Portraying moments when Sherlock is wrong and has to be brought up short
- Filming the rooftop scene between Sherlock and John in The Reichenbach Fall, and being able to find a vulnerability and emotional depth for the character.
- "The coat is nice, but not in summer."
- "Driving a Land Rover as fast as you can was good!"
- Getting the dialogue right is "one of the best things in the world"
- "And you" (to Louise)

When asked if he had a single favourite episode of the series as a viewer, he said he didn't, but again highlighted the rooftop scene from The Reichenbach Fall and being able to see what Martin was doing on the ground while he was on the rooftop in the final version of the episode.

Benedict also related the most embarrassing thing to occur to him on set filming the series, which was the infamous scene of Sherlock in nothing but a bedsheet inside Buckingham Palace. On one take of Mycroft stepping on the sheet in the scene, a combination of factors between Mark's stepping and Benedict's forward movement lead him to fall completely flat on his face. Further joking saw Louise reveal what was inside Molly's Christmas present to Sherlock in A Scandal in Belgravia - a Mankini, as seen in Borat. He also commented on his occasional frustration with Sherlock's hair, and the time it takes to prepare and look after it before filming can begin for the day.

Talk on his other recent projects also featured. Benedict revealed parts of his preparation for his role in Frankenstein at The National Theatre, attending a live autopsy and depriving himself of sensory experiences to attempt to understand the experience of being born anew. On Parade's End, due to the tight production schedule he didn't have the time to read the novels beforehand and relied upon the scripts by Tom Stoppard, the direction of Suzanna White, and the work of his co-stars to understand the character of Christopher Tietjens initially, before finding the time to plunge fully into the nine hundred odd pages of Ford Madox Ford's work. He said that of all the characters he has played, Tietjens is his personal favourite, and that agreed with a statement from Louise that his look and manner made him well suited to playing period characters, but he said that his identification with that type of role could be attributed to his manner as 'an old soul' - something pointed out to him by one of his teachers while at Harrow. Incidentally, his headmaster from the school was in attendance, which led to huge applause from the audience, and later a bit of an apology to him when Benedict admitted to smoking and drinking whiskey in a successful attempt to deepen his voice for a school play!

Knowing the size of that audience, Benedict also quite wisely took the opportunity to address his recent misquoting in the press regarding the topics of Elementary and 'posh bashing', with two thousand pairs of ears being perhaps the best and most unimpeachable witnesses to what he had to say. He noted that much of this can be attributed to misinterpreted humour or even outright fabrication, so he is now being quite guarded when giving interviews. On Elementary, he said that it was impossible and wrong for him to claim any form of ownership over the character after 70 previous actors had played Holmes, and reaffirmed his genuine best wishes for his friend Jonny Lee Miller in his performance, wanting him to have "nothing less than rip-roaring success" and stated how impressed he was the series after viewing the pilot on broadcast while in the United States. On 'posh bashing', he said he was bemused by his sudden appearance as a mouthpiece for the privileged in the media from misquoted or even fabricated statements, and that one of the reasons someone becomes an actor is actually to be free of any notions of class. He is clearly very thankful for the chances he was given by his parents and the fame that has been afforded him though, and one of those is his chance to become a mouthpiece for charities, and thus help give people a second chance where they would ordinarily not be heard. He highlighted the Palace to Palace charity bike ride he is undertaking on behalf of The Prince's Trust on Sunday October 14 2012, cycling 45 miles from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle - and joked he would wear the previously mentioned mankini as part of his cycling gear. He said the greatest benefit of sudden fame is the chance to talk about these things in front of a large audience, and the opportunities it provides in general.

Benedict also spoke about his upcoming projects, including August: Osage County, which he has been filming this month alongside Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor and Chris Cooper, and will return to the States soon to continue working on the film. Displaying an excellent poker face, he could give us no comment on anything relating to Star Trek Into Darkness, but said how the film will be a fantastic experience come May next year.

Discussion turned to Twitter late in the event, following Benedict's query if people would like him to join the social networking site - to huge cheers. He reaffirmed that he has no plans to do so, and that he is not on the service at all, but also suggested he lacked the writing ability and skill to edit necessary to fit information into those pesky 140 characters.

Following the Q&A section of the panel - much of which we've covered throughout this report already - the event concluded having run over time, but even as we prepared to make our long journey home for the night, we stopped to watch the sheer dedication of the fans of this remarkable actor, and his response to them in turn, going way over the allotted hour of scheduled signing to ensure every single person queuing was able to receive his signature. It was a fantastically fun evening in the company of Benedict and Louise, with many moments of mucking about and humour from both that is difficult to describe after the event - though their late realisation that they were both being projected onto a giant screen to the audience was a definite highlight, with Louise's shock and Benedict's subsequent shameless mugging. It is always a tremendous pleasure to hear actors talk about their craft, and as good as he is on screen, Benedict is huge fun to listen to in person.

BIEN, no sabía donde colocar esto, porque entrevista bien bien no es, pero hay preguntas y respuestas, así que lo dejo por aquí. Cuando pueda os lo traduzco y comento, porque la cosa da para unas cuantas opiniones...las que podáis entenderla ya me lo diréis! Cool

Es el encuentro de una fan suya que tiene un tumblr y lo sigue a todos lados siempre que puede. La chica cuenta aquí su experiencia tras la última grabación de Cabin Pressure y su encuentro con Benedict después.

" i’ll try my best to remember everything again. it’s a little shady to say the least, (3 hours sleep!).
i wasn’t going to post every little detail but stuff it, there are loads of you that are dying to read about it and live ‘vicariously’ through me, so here’s the best i can do at details. so i arrived around 8:30, yay simon and laura. bit of an odd atmosphere in the queue, might have been the gloomy weather! benedict arrived around 9ish and said good morning to everyone. he came back out 10 minutes later, “have people been shouting at you all for being too loud!?” lot’s of yeah’s. “all the time!”. “aw no, well thank you all for being so quiet!”. oh what a love! john finnemore came out and “just wanted to come out and say hello, and thank you all for coming and waiting in the cold. that’s all i wanted to say. *awkward giggle* see you in a while!” <3333
got in to our seaties and enjoyed two *arthur voice* brilliant episodes. my favourite, non spoiler part was when stephanie messed up her lines and said, “fiddly arseholes!” at which roger looked round to his backside and said, “i wondered what that was!”. everyone cracked up and it took a few takes to regain control after that. (yes i’m looking at you cumbergiggle!!).
afterwards around 50 people held on to see if they could meet the actors and within about 25 minutes, roger, stephanie, benedict and john were all out having photos and signing autographs! a gesture that was deeply appreciated by us all!
to say the crowd around benedict was a bit squishy was an understatement. benedict, while holding a glass of champagne, asked people to go back and as they did, i found myself guarding the microphone, “be careful! microphone!! be careful of mic, he’s only little!”. so after everyone shimmied round my mate mic, everyone started having their pics and autographs with benedict.
it was soon my turn and i was greeted with a lovely, “hello you!”.

oh what a love. “hello… again…” i then mentioned about the fact i should stop popping up everywhere haha! i asked him to sign my copy of empire mag and another little something (keep your eyes peeled followers, someone might be in with the chance of nabbing something super cool…).
“sure, can you hold this for me?” -hands tor champagne glass-
“oh, what i wouldn’t give for a glass of champagne. i’ve hardly had a drink all day!”
“you can have some if you like!”
“really? are you sure?”
“yeah, you can have it!”
“oh, thank you very much!”
-starts drinking the rest of benedict cumberbatch’s champagne-
i did consider cloning him for each and every one of you with whatever dna i had in that glass but by the time i thought about it, i had already drank it all… forgive me Wink
*i’ll know who to blame if i suddenly wake up ill tomorrow!*

“i should really get myself one of these” -empire mag-
“you haven’t got one?”
“no..”
“what! no-ones brought you one!?”
“no..”
“well they’d almost sold out of all your copies and had a tonne of chris pines left!”
“really? bet it’s not the same in america, they probably have loads of my copies left!”
“er, no. you’re taking america by storm!”
-smiley cumberbatch-
“where have you come from?”
“kent. canterbury. you ever been?”
“yeah, i have actually. very nice!”
he handed back the goods, and i asked if i could have a picture. he kindly obliged and dear simon snapped a few in succession.

i’ll admit it. and benedict, if, and lets hope not, you’re reading this, i’m so sorry. i didn’t know i was touching until i was well…. touching. giving you a cheeky back rub and resting my hand on your waistline was a little bit naughty. it must have been the bubbly!!
simon and laura asked for a photo next! laura said, “no, group pic!” so benedict said, “get down here!” and directed her in;

simon, looking at the finished product said, “hmmm. that looks a bit wierd”. “no, you look proud! you look like martin creiff!” hahahahahaha!!
so that was that. i said to him, “before i go, 2013!?!?! it’s going to be amazing. we can’t wait for everything!” “oh thank you darling!” “just enjoy it and take care of yourself okay. i’ll see you soon!”
and so i bid farewell to a certain b cumbs! “take care!”.

benedict announced he was leaving around 10 minutes after and when he looked up at me i made sure, “are you sure it’s okay for me to neck this!?” “it’s fine. there’s plenty more back there!”
so i sneaked it out inside my jacket and gently sipped it all the way to euston train station. hahahaha!
a somewhat lovely day and on a personal note, it was *arthur voice* brilliant to finally get a photo with him! thank you all for being so lovely in comments, messages and tweets about being so happy for me. i’ll get back to all your messages and tweets when i’ve got a moment tomorrow. you’re all absolute diamonds. that was literally all we had time for so i couldn’t pass on anyones personal messages, so i apologise for that. let’s all sit back see where 2013 takes us/him!
p.s as the previous write up was deleted, i really am writing this on my last legs so apologies if there any grammatical errors. i’m so exhausted, i’m going straight to bed!
above: please do not cut benedict out of my photos. thank you.
below: a few pictures simon took beforehand. so the guys in them, you’re welcome. they’re on the house. do as you please."

Y esta es la chica en cuestión. La verdad es que consiguió un montón de fotos Lucky Girl!!!

El encuentro es de lo más normal, pero me ha sorprendido el detalle del champán. Yo ya lo siento, pero lo que es "moi", no se bebe las sobras de un vaso, ni que éste sea el de Benedict Cumberbatch...pero bueno, igual esto en UK, según que circunstancias, se ve de lo más normal... Shocked

*Lo que está en negrita y cursiva es lo que la chica marca como las palabras de Ben. Lo he marcado yo también porque así es más fácil seguir el diálogo.

Desmontando a Julian Assange

Primeras imágenes de 'The Fifth Estate', la película basada en el libro 'Dentro de Wikileaks' que describe a su fundador como un megalómano obsesionado con el poder

Ya han salido a la luz las primeras imágenes de The Fifth Estate, la película sobre Julian Assange. En ellas se aprecia la transformación de Benedict Cumberbatch, actor que interpreta al activista y fundador de la Wikileaks, caracterizado con una cazadora verde militar, mochila y una melena rubia platino que recrea el característico pelo largo y canoso de Assange.

Cumberbatch comparte plató junto al hispano-alemán Daniel Brühl, en la pìel del exportavoz de Wikileaks Daniel Domscheit-Berg y el director Bill Condon, cuya filmografía cuenta con títulos tan dispares como la saga de vampiros adolescentes Crepúsculo: Amanecer, partes 1 y 2 y Kinsey, sobre uno de los pioneros de la sexología.

La producción está parcialmente basada en el libro Dentro de Wikileaks, de Daniel Domscheit-Berg. En sus memorias el informático alemán describe al fundador como un megalómano obsesionado con el poder que “parecía criado por lobos. La comida no se compartía de manera equitativa” dice Domscheit-Berg del que fue su mejor amigo “Solo contaba quién era más rápido. Si había cuatro trozos de carne, él comía tres y me dejaba uno.” Assange amenazó con denunciar a su antiguo colaborador por romper el contrato de confidencialidad que hacía firmar a todos sus empleados.

Como era de esperar la película no cuenta con el beneplácito del organismo pro libertad de información. Assange se halla acogido en la embajada ecuatoriana en Londres, después de que fuera reclamado por Suecia acusado de violación y abusos sexuales. Desde su asilo en el edificio dio una charla mediante videolink a la Unión de estudiantes de Oxford en el que reveló que había conseguido una copia del guión del filme. Aseguró que la producción de Dreamworks “aviva las llamas de la guerra contra Irán”, ya que en la primera escena se sugiere que el país está preparando un arma nuclear. “¿Qué tiene todo eso que ver con nosotros? Es una mentira tras otra” declaró. “Es un gran ataque propagandístico a Wikileaks.” El activista añadió que el público británico debería preocuparse por la participación de Cumberbatch, conocido por su papel en la reciente adaptación televisiva de Sherlock Holmes. Durante la intervención no dio pistas sobre el fin de su encierro en la embajada, en la que permanece desde verano. En un discurso anterior mantuvo que seguirá pidiendo asilo mientras el Pentágono considere un “continuo crimen” a WikiLeaks, organización que filtró documentos secretos sobre la guerra de Irak.

Según el portavoz de Wikileaks Kristinn Hrafnsson “Hollywood no es el mejor reflejo de la historia contemporánea.” Condon ha respondido que con su película no pretende erigirse una autoridad sobre el tema ni hacer un “juicio final” y que se centrará en el papel del activista australiano como revolucionario dentro de la difusión de información. The Fifth Estate tiene previsto su estreno a finales de año.

Chicas, os he movido todos los mensajes que habíais puesto sobre la película The Fifth Estate al apartado que toca. Todos estos comentarios sobre la película no tienen que estar en este apartado. Esto es sólo para artículos de prensa sobre Benedict.
La película sobre Julian Assange ya tiene su hilo propio dentro de "Benedict Cumberbatch Place", así que por favor, escribid allí, que si no, se nos lía esto. Gracias Smile

No te preocupes por eso pandora, en esa clase de revistas aqui solo sale la esteban y cuatro petardillas por el estilo, y que conste que yo lo prefiero asi, que se le conozca por su gran trabajo y no por ser un personaje de revistillas de esas Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad , que por otro lado era lo que le estaba pasando ya en yanquilandia, pero parece que se ha frenado y ha echo bien , mucha party tampoco es bueno todo en su justa medida.

Artículo de hoy en Sunday Express:

(Repite mucho de lo que ya ha dicho en anteriores artículos/entrevistas pero dice cosas de August Osage County):

[Tienes que estar registrado y conectado para ver este vínculo]

Benedict Cumberbatch: 'I'm so LA now'

Even Sherlock Holmes would be baffled. Benedict Cumberbatch certainly is.

"It's like a lawn in a glass," he says, holding his murky green smoothie up to the light. "But hey, I'm so LA now - it's all juices and egg-white omelettes and can I get a small dog in a handbag to go?"

Britain's most charismatic actor (currently single, by the way) is getting used to Tinseltown and its wacky ways, now that his fame is going global. Or rather galactic, thanks to his role in the new Star Trek movie, Into Darkness.

"Benedict Cumberbatch is the best actor in the world," announced the film's director, JJ Abrams, before I met his 36-year-old star.

"Ha!" cries Benedict, rattling teacups across the room. "That means I now have to say he's the greatest director in the world. It's a pact we have."

Abrams always knew he wanted Cumberbatch to play the villain of the piece, but studio executives were not so sure. And that meant the actor had to do something that hadn't been required in a while: audition for the part.

"That was good, actually," he says, suddenly sounding very Old Harrovian. "It's very flattering to be offered work without an audition, but it also brings pressure because you haven't won it. You haven't proved your ability to do that role."

He shouldn't worry. From blockbuster movies (three Hobbit films) to quality telly (Sherlock, Parades's End) and hot-ticket theatre (Frankenstein), Cumberbatch has proved he has ability in spades. Surely his parents, both jobbing actors themselves, are delighted?

"They tried everything to put me off this as a career," he chuckles. "They gave me an education where I could choose to be anything but an actor, which I was very privileged to have, and then I threw it back in their faces."

But only after his father (Timothy Carlton, best known for the TV sitcoms Executive Stress and Next of Kin) had bowed to the inevitable. "He saw me in Amadeus at university and said, 'You're better than I ever was or ever will be. You should do this.' which made me cry, but here I am."

Little did he know it, but Cumberbatch senior had actually lit the flame of ambition some years earlier. "When I was little he read me The Hobbit," says Benedict. "I must have been seven because I went to boarding school at eight. I'd say, 'Come on, bring it out! Just do Gollum. what would Gollum say now, dad?' And he'd do the voice.

"He was brilliant at it. I loved the performance aspect, so yeah, it's just amazing things have come full circle and I get to play Smaug in the Hobbit cycle."

So now they've got used to the idea, is it fair to say his parents are absolutely thrilled with his success?

"They are - it's really lovely. They still work. They've still got their careers. But they're over the moon. It's one of the driving motivations of my life to just get out of bed and make them proud."

Timothy and his wife Wanda Ventham (aka Cassandra's mum in Only Fools and Horses) are sure to enjoy another of their boy's upcoming releases, August: Osage Country. Based on acclaimed playwright Tracy Letts' play, it also stars no less than Meryl Streep.

So did Benedict inform Ms Streep that she is not in fact the world's greatest living actor - he is?

"Oh, she knows that," he chuckles. "She knows she's number two. Seriously, though, she's not only one of the all-time greats, she's also a human being rather than a film star.

"That's the best thing of all. Oh, and she's a Sherlock fan. The first time we met, she came up to me and said, 'Everyone in our family loves your show. And I just adore it.'"

Then Benedict takes a swig of his "lawn in a glass" and stares at it again, as if he can't quite believe any of this is really happening.

Star Trek into Darkness is out in cinemas on Thursday.

Artículo de ayer 7-5-13 en el Esquire Latinoamérica (se supone que es para dar a conocer a Benedict en Latinoamérica, aunque yo creo que ya le conocen bastante allí, ¿no es así? Razz :

Benedict Cumberbatch
Si este peculiar nombre aún no es tan reconocido fuera de Inglaterra, lo será con el estreno de Star Trek Into Darkness.

Escucho con los ojos cerrados lo que dice Benedict Cumberbatch y me salta su voz de barítono cargada de matices roncos. El actor inglés de 36 años, estrella en su país -por su protagonismo en las series Sherlock (BBC) y Parade`s End (HBO) y un interesante rol en War Horse de Steven Spielberg-, habla con gran rapidez. Exige atención. Su voz es un puente para conectar y armonizar los casi brutales extremos de emociones que Cumberbatch lleva desplegando desde hace más de una década de trayectoria en teatro, radio, televisión y cine.

Con un vocabulario preciso persigue las ideas para hilar largas e inteligentes cadenas de conversación, con amplias fuentes literarias o de actualidad, para terminar compartiendo su opinión sobre lo que significa encarnar a alguien. "Como actor uno puede perder peso, ganarlo, ponerse una nariz tonta o imitar acentos locos, para que la audiencia admire las diferencias que eres capaz de reflejar. Pero al concentrarte en eso, solo quieres que te vean a ti, cuando lo que se debe buscar es que la gente se preocupe por el personaje que está viendo".

Esa preocupación es la que el artista espera generar por el villano de Star Trek Into Darkness, del director J. J. Abrams (Lost). "Interpreto a un malo atípico, detrás de cuyas acciones hay cálculo, inteligencia y manipulación, pero también es un guerrero feroz y físicamente diestro", explica. Se trata de un antiguo miembro del Starfleet Command que usa su genio para causar una destrucción épica. Es el archienemigo de un Kirk joven, capaz de poner de rodillas al famoso capitán; es un personaje con múltiples capas emocionales y una poderosa razón para su maldad. Cumberbatch lo presenta de forma perturbadora y cerebral.

"Benedict tiene su propia gravedad como actor y como persona", dice el escritor de la nueva entrega de Star Trek, Damon Lindelof, quien le sugirió a J. J. Abrams que lo viera en Sherlock. "Te atrae y es imposible escapar de su influencia".

Para J. J. Abrams, Benedict "es uno de los mejores actores vivientes. Es como ver a un gimnasta olímpico en movimiento. Yo imaginaba que iba a ser bueno en cualquier cosa, pero sobrepasó mis expectativas. Lo elevó todo, y le confirió a sus escenas la inteligencia y el respeto que exigían".

Quizá la única escena no tan respetuosa fue la prueba que le pidieron enviar. "Me tocó filmarla en un iPhone", recuerda Cumberbatch riendo. "Era la época de Navidad de 2011 y por esos días no había en Londres un solo director. Decidí hacerla yo mismo y me fallaron las baterías de la videocámara. Llamé a un amigo y terminamos filmando la escena en su cocina, en un iPhone colocado entre dos sillas. Unos días después, J. J. me llamó y me preguntó: ¿Quieres venir a divertirte?. Fue genial". Incluso Abrams le dijo a The New York Times que era "una de las mejores lecturas de prueba que había visto jamás".

De Cumberbatch me llamó la atención el profundo y nada común interés en la ciencia y en interpretar personas notablemente difíciles, como el cosmólogo británico Stephen Hawking antes de quedar paralítico (Hawking, 2004); el físico nuclear alemán Werner Heisenberg en el umbral de la creación de la bomba atómica (Copenhaguen, BBC Radio 3, 2013); el mismo Sherlock Holmes, experto en química; Julian Assange, el programador y activista australiano que fundó WikiLeaks (WikiLeaks, en posproducción); el doctor Victor Frankenstein, alternando el rol con el del monstruo (Frankenstein, Royal National Theatre, 2012); y próximamente la turbulenta vida del matemático británico Alan Turing, padre de la computadora (papel que había sido ofrecido a Leonardo DiCaprio).

"A veces la ficción y el arte se casan con la ciencia y es algo magnífico", comenta Cumberbatch. "Para Star Trek filmamos varias secuencias en un lugar excepcional, el National Ignition Facility, en California, un laboratorio donde se intenta crear fusión nuclear, que utiliza lásers a velocidades extraordinarias para golpear un blanco menos grueso que un cabello humano. Es terriblemente emocionante. Algún día producirá una fuente limpia de energía".

Físicamente, Benedict parece una criatura exótica. La cara asimétrica es fascinante, como de otra época. Está llena de ángulos y posee los pómulos más tuiteados de la red. No sería mala idea que los asegurara, como hiciera Marlene Dietrich con sus piernas.

Con notable destreza juega a ser la persona más calculadora y carente de afecto, y segundos después, todo lo contrario. Un minuto es muy bien parecido y al siguiente, con solo mover algún músculo escondido en su rostro, no lo es. "Sé que no encajo en ningún arquetipo y eso no me molesta", ha dicho repetidas veces. "Igual, siempre he sabido que mi cara es muy larga y mi cabeza demasiado grande".

No obstante, tiene una legión de fans femeninas que no dejan de sorprenderlo con el creciente número de websites dedicados a él. Y a pesar de no participar en ninguna red social ("me es imposible limitarme a un tweet de 140 caracteres"), su nombre está asociado a cientos de postings.

Mi primer encuentro con la actuación de Cumberbatch fue en los seis episodios de 90 minutos de Sherlock que Spielberg describió como "el mejor Sherlock en pantalla [de las 72 interpretaciones que se han hecho del detective]", y que no hay que confundir con el de la serie Elementary.

Su Sherlock habita en el Londres moderno, depende del celular, usa la última tecnología en materia de laboratorio de química y se viste elegantemente. Hasta el punto de que su ya famoso abrigo, diseñado por la casa Belstaff, se ha convertido en un best-seller británico (se vende en 1,350 libras).

"Me encanta ese abrigo", le dijo Cumberbatch a The Guardian. "Tengo uno parecido que me regalaron antes, y es una lástima porque ya no lo puedo usar en público. Los guantes y la bufanda de Sherlock fueron idea mía, así como el ojal en hilo rojo del abrigo". Cumberbatch le presta atención al estilo, y se ha ido convirtiendo en algo de ícono de la moda: participa en desfiles que apoyan a creadores ingleses, aunque también favorece los trajes minimalistas de la alemana Jil Sander, apodada "la reina del menos". "De Sherlock me gustan los trajes limpios y bien cortados [del diseñador Spencer Hart], aunque están tan entallados que me cuesta trabajo respirar".

Pero más trabajo le cuesta entregar las escenas de las famosas deducciones de Holmes. "Son endemoniadamente difíciles. Comienzo a aprender esas líneas dos o tres días antes porque siempre son un parto doloroso. He descubierto que el truco es pronunciar una frase mientras pienso en la que sigue. Hay que trabajar muy duro en eso, y cuando puedo, busco momentos de calma para desconectarme y meditar un poco sobre el proceso".

Esa meditación la aprendió durante el año que pasó enseñando inglés a monjes budistas en la India, antes de entrar a estudiar Arte Dramático en la Universidad de Manchester y luego en la Academia de Música y Artes Dramáticas de Londres. Cuando se graduó (tras escribir una tesis sobre el director Stanley Kubrick) ya tenía un agente, y ha trabajado sin parar desde entonces. Sus padres, actores también, le quisieron dar una educación privilegiada en un colegio de la alta sociedad llamado Harrow, a un costo de 29 mil libras por año (de ahí han salido ocho primeros ministros de Inglaterra). Trataban de alejar a su hijo del difícil camino de la actuación, pero eso -e inscribirse en el equipo de rugby- fue lo primero que hizo el joven estudiante.

Benedict Cumberbatch se ha descrito a sí mismo como malgeniado, impaciente, algo anticuado, desorganizado con el horario (haciendo esperar a Spielberg durante su primer encuentro para discutir War Horse), fumador, amante del dulce y del café negro. Le fascinan las manos humanas y se le olvidan los cumpleaños de todo el mundo. Quiere pintar, bucear, escribir, hacerlo todo ya. Es totalmente ambiguo con sus creencias religiosas, le gusta la poesía y adora a los niños; quiere formar una familia cuanto antes pero no ha tenido el tiempo de relacionarse con nadie en serio después de los 12 años que pasó con la actriz Olivia Poulet. Siente que la dificultad es que cuando conoce a alguien solo ve en él al personaje ficticio y no al verdadero Benedict.

Habiendo ganado 18 reconocimientos en su carrera por Hawking, Sherlock, Parade`s End y Frankenstein, entre otros, y 16 nominaciones incluyendo una al Golden Globe también por Sherlock, Cumberbatch afirma que el peso de la responsabilidad lo hace feliz. En cambio, hay algo que no lo hace tan feliz: "Tengo muy sensible el cuero cabelludo", confesó una vez entre risas. "Jala mi pelo de forma equivocada y me verás de rodillas pidiendo clemencia".

Qué no habrían dado Kirk y Spock por tener esa información desde el principio.

Artículo de hoy 9-5-13 en USA Today (atención a la última parte donde habla de Star Wars y de que le gustaría tener alrededor una familia de Chewbaccas Razz Razz )

British actor has become 'a king of the geeks' with 'Star Trek,' 'Sherlock' roles.

When you appear on the pop-culture radar of a guy like Damon Lindelof, you're doing something right.

The Lost co-creator first saw Benedict Cumberbatch on the first season of the British TV show Sherlock — which stars the English actor as a quirky, antisocial yet exceedingly brilliant modern-day version of the detective — and recommended his buddy, Star Trek director J.J. Abrams, take a look at Cumberbatch to play the villain of his sequel.

"When he came to meet us in L.A. for the first time, they had shot the second season, and I begged him for a DVD," Lindelof says. "He gave it to me and said that if I lost it he would have to kill me, at which point I fell deeply in love with him."

With galaxy-chewing gusto, Cumberbatch stars as the antagonist John Harrison in Star Trek Into Darkness (in theaters May 16), and between that, Sherlock and his upcoming motion-capture role as the dragon Smaug in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, his star status will be hoisted above just being a guy Anglophiles know and adore.

"I've always tried to mix up my work. I haven't made a plan of being a king of the geeks. It just happens that at this moment in time I've been the go-to guy," says Cumberbatch, whose big-screen fare thus far has tended to be of the period-drama sort, including Atonement,The Other Boleyn Girl, War Horse and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

That might be news for those who aren't already regulars on Team Cumberbatch, such as his large female fan base and cult contingent who follow him as Sherlock. In the past, he's likened getting ready to play the detective to revving up an engine and using a good amount of oil, concentration and focus, and it's similar to what he had to do for Harrison, a seemingly superhuman terrorist connected to Starfleet that Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and the U.S.S. Enterprise crew have to track down and capture.

Cumberbatch, 36, had to master both mind and body — for the latter, he gained enough muscle through training and eating 4,000 calories a day to build an intimidating figure. "I grew from a 38 (chest size) to a 42 in just over a month. I really went for it," he says.

Like his Sherlock, Harrison has a sharp intellect but in a different way. Whereas in the TV series (Cumberbatch is filming the third season now in the U.K.) there is a certain speed at which Sherlock's mind moves, Harrison has similar moments in Star Trek "but it's just to do with him being silver-tongued and very quick, not to do with moments of massive deduction like you get in Sherlock," Cumberbatch says.

"That's a very different muscle altogether — a really difficult one but very enjoyable when you hit the sweet spot."

What struck Lindelof about Cumberbatch, especially as Sherlock, was that there was a great unpredictability around him — "There's just nothing more exciting than an actor where you just literally don't know what they're going to do" — but also a sense of not needing the audience to like him and making choices that weren't always the most heroic.

"He had this incredible intelligence that was emanating from him, and I think that idea of it can be very dangerous and very scary when somebody's that smart. What if he were to use that power not for good but for something else?" says Lindelof, a screenwriter and producer on Star Trek Into Darkness. "He very easily could have been cast as Moriarty on this series and that would have been just as interesting."

While most of Cumberbatch's roles tend to be dunked in gravitas, Abrams appreciated the balance of his self-deprecating humor off-camera and that seriousness on.

"When someone's going to be playing a role in a movie like Star Trek, you need actors who are going to commit to this as if they're doing the most grounded true-story drama," the director says. "You can't have people going into this in the campy, silly way. You have to really sell it because if you don't, the audience will feel there is a disingenuous, by-the-numbers approach. And Benedict every day brought a respect to the character and the audience."

The son of British actors, the London-born Cumberbatch will continue to be seen on American shores for the rest of the year. In addition to Star Trek, he plays Little Charles Aiken in the movie adaptation of the play August: Osage County (Nov. Cool, controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate (Nov. 15) and slave owner William Ford in Twelve Years a Slave (Dec. 27.)

And those are just the things where he's actually seen on screen — Cumberbatch also "shredded" his baritone voice to star as Smaug in the Hobbit sequel (Dec. 13).

"Every job is incredibly different and I love it because you're picking up skill sets and experiences. It's the university of life," Cumberbatch says.

"That's why I do it. I could do it for five people — I could just do it for my parents in the living room. For me it's not about the scale of the project or the size of the audience or following or thinking of what the audience wants. It's selfishly just this thing of really enjoying my job."

Immersing himself in sci-fi, though, is a bit of childhood wish fulfillment. While he enjoyed the morality tales of the original Star Trek reruns he watched over biscuits and tea in the early evening, he grew up adoring Star Wars — along with Indiana Jones, Han Solo was one of "the coolest, most aspirational heroes of my childhood," he says.

Ask Cumberbatch if he's available for Abrams' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, and he lets loose an impressive Wookiee roar in return.

"Where's Chewbacca in all of this? You want little baby Ewok-sized Chewbacca and a whole family of Chewbaccas," the actor says, fan-casting a subplot to the upcoming movie. (If you play a dragon in a movie, you can probably also play a furry co-pilot who growls a lot.)

"It's safe to say that J.J. knows my work and has my number. It would be great fun. Just promise me you won't have a banner headline where it goes, 'USA TODAY exclusive: Cumberbatch wants in with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams,' " he adds, laughing. "The worst way to try and get a job I think is to tout it in a national newspaper."

What else would you expect from the reigning king of the geeks?
