Caitlin Moran revealed at last night’s Book Slam how she recently ended up wandering the countryside in search of Benedict Cumberbatch. Speaking at The Grand in Clapham Junction, the How To Be a Woman author explained that she had been trying to set up an interview with the Sherlock star and that he had “suggested that I come to the country and have Sunday lunch with his parents”.

“So I’m going down on the train, pretending this isn’t a big deal, and thinking about how ridiculous it was that there was all that fuss last summer about Benedict being posh — like that’s a problem.”

But, Moran admitted, she was a little intimidated to arrive at a vast, sprawling and apparently empty country mansion. “This house was so big that I couldn’t work out how to get in and I’m thinking f***ing hell, he really is posh.

Finally, I go to the nearby peasants’ cottage to ask for help, and there’s Benedict, leaning on a fence, politely asking why I’ve just spent the last half an hour trying to break into Kate Moss’s house’.”

TRADUCCIÓN:

Caitlin Moran (crítica de TV y columnista en "The Times") reveló en el Book Slam de la pasada noche cómo hace poco acabó paseando por el campo en busca de Benedict Cumberbatch. Hablando en The Grand en Clapham Junction, la autora de "Cómo ser una mujer" explicó que había estado intentando hacer una entrevista a la estrella de Sherlock y que Benedict "le sugirió que fuera al campo y que comiera el domingo con él y sus padres".

"Así es que fui en tren, fingiendo que no hay para tanto, y pensando en lo ridículo que había sido todo el alboroto que hubo el verano pasado que decía que Benedict era un pijo - como si eso fuera un problema"

Pero, Moran admitió que se sintió un poco intimidada al llegar a una casa de campo enorme, extensa y aparentemente vacía. "Esa casa era tan grande que no pude averiguar la manera de entrar y pensé 'Jod**, pues sí que es pijo'.

Al final, fui a la casita de campo que había cerca para pedir ayuda, y ahí estaba Benedict, apoyado en una valla, preguntándome educadamente porqué me había pasado la última media hora intentando meterme en la casa de Kate Moss".

Manipulative, Intimidating, Sinister…
All the qualities that made Benedict Cumberbatch to play the coolest movie villain ever.
SO BAD, HE’S GOOD
(The New Paper) Benedict Cumberbatch, 36, is a star in Britain, but he is still largely unknown beyond British shores due to his minimal Hopllywood resume (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and War Horse).
Cumberbatch, who stars in the acclaimed British mini-series Sherlock, where he plays the modern-day sleuth, however, seems set for international stardom with his role as main villain in Hollywood;s Star trek into Darkness.
The sequel to the 2009 box-office winner Star Trek, opening here on May 16, has Cumberbatch playing John Harrison, a super-smart, super-strong, super-bad sci-fi terrorist who has a big bone to pick with the United Federation of Planets, or The Federation.
Standing in Harrison’s way is captain kirk (Chris Pine) and his crew - Spock (Zachary Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Bones (Karl Urban), Sulu (John Cho), Scotty (Simon Pegg) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) - aboard the USS Enterprise.
There has been much speculation among fans that Harrison is actually Khan, a beloved antagonist from the original Star trek television series and from the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).
Being a super-cool villain will no doubt raise Cumberbatch’s value, especially with the millions of Trekkies out there.
But going from Sherlock to outer space came with a price.
Cumberbatch had to get into shape for an action-packed movie like Star trek.
“I have changed shape for roles before (but) not quite on this scale, and this time, it is all about learning about the Hollywood diet - that beautiful blend of eating a lot of food and doing a lot of exercise,” said Cumberbatch.
“But I enjoyed it because it was a real thrill. It’s very important to me that (my character) has a strong physical presence that is believable,” he added, his smooth, deep voice casting a spell on the international gathering of reporters at the Corinthia Hotel in London for the Star Trek Into Darkness press conference last week.
“I’m sometimes perceived to be cerebral rather than physical,” he said.
Casting Cumberbatch was an easy decision for director and producer Abrams.
“The truth is we’ve been looking rather far and wide and desperately to cast the right actor for the role of John Harrison.
“We were very lucky in the first film, where we had extraordinary actors all filling these iconic roles and elevating everything, and it’s hard.”
Abrams explained further: “(Writer and producer) Damon Lindelof said to me, ‘Have you checked out Sherlock?’
“I haven’t seen it, but after I watched it, my jaw hit the floor! And then Benedict auditioned, and at the audition, it was done.
“We actually found the person who could not only play someone as manipulative and sinister and intimidating and physical but also do that thing that is the definition to me of the film, which is also to start to sympathise and care for that person.
“That is really the mark of a good actor to do all that, being able to pull that off and make it look easy.”
Cumberbatch’s role as the new villain in Star Trek has been the subject of aggressive marketing campaigns to strengthen the movie’s core subject matter of terrorism.
Despite the focus, Cumberbatch and Abrams both agreed that the role of the villain has a sense of incredible simplicity and purity.
“We played with a lot of the looks and I think that’s very important because I wanted him to appear more human,” said Cumberbatch, looking extremely suave in an all-black suit with his hair sleeked back.
Abrams chipped in about the villain:”His character is unadorned, and he’s not wearing some ridiculous costume or headdress or a mask or tattoos; he’s just a guy standing there in a black shirt against the plain neutral space delivering an intense performance, which at times was sinister and scary.”
When asked about his inspiration for the role, Cumberbatch asked Abrams: “Can I tell them what you said to do in the audition?”
To which Abrams snarkily replied: “only if you want to ruin a friendship!”
Producer Bryan Burk said Cumberbatch took an iconic villain and made it his own.
“Benedict, like so many of the (Star Trek) actors, has not replicated what came before, but sort of returned to the mystical essence of the characters and played it according to his own instinct.
“You can’t look at a bad guy and say we want to do it like that. The villain has to have his own motivations.
“It’s true that your good guys are only as good as your bad guys. The challenge is that we’re all going to have these iconic characters – how are we going to do it in a way that’s entirely familiar and entirely fresh at the same time,” Burk said.
Cumberbatch’s extensive theatre background certainly didn’t prepare him for a CGI-heavy sci-fi flick.
He had to adjust to filming in front of green screens.
“there was a lot of computer animation, but actually the real joy is the live action.”
The posh London-born Englishman, who studied drama at Manchester University before training at The London Academy of Dramatic Art, is already garnering fans around the globe through the various publicity tours.
Co-star Saldana is a clear fan, proclaiming: “Ben is a very merticulous actor… I find that to be quite amazing.”
Cumberbatch even has a strong following of female fans who called themselves “Cumberb*tches”.
In addition to the third season of Sherlock, Cumberbatch has several big-screen projects lined up that will continue to showcase his acting skills, including playing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate.
He has also just been cast in Guillermo del Toro’s horror film Crimson Peak, which also stars Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain.
His rich baritone voice is also being put into good use – he voices Smaug and the Nacromancer in The Hobbit: There And Back Again.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Out of Darkness
By Mary Kaye Schilling


I meet Benedict Cumberbatch the afternoon after an awkward ­appearance on Letterman, where he was promoting his part as John Harrison, an intergalactic terrorist, in J. J. Abrams’s Star Trek Into Darkness. It’s a summery spring day in New York, and we’re on the patio of his room at the Bowery Hotel. Cumberbatch—his dead-white complexion shaded by a newsboy cap—is “chuffed” by his posh digs; it’s his first starring role in a blockbuster, and he’s not used to this level of star treatment—well, from everyone except David Letterman, who has not, apparently, been following the actor’s rise as avidly as the actor’s Internet fan club, the ­Cumberbitches. Not only did Cumberbatch have to follow an animal act, but Letterman, who began by referring to Star Trek as Star Wars, asked his guest—a ­veteran of twenty movies, including ­Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and War Horse—if he was new to major motion pictures. (The actor, being the polite, Harrow-­educated Brit that he is, jumped in to save his host: “This major? Yes!”) I tell Cumberbatch that, given Letterman’s cluelessness, I was surprised there weren’t the usual efforts to wring a laugh from his name.

“Well, since he couldn’t even say it,” says the actor. “At one point, before I came on, he announced me as ‘Benedict Cumber… ,’ and his voice sort of trailed off. My friends said, ‘What the fuck was that? It was like his batteries ran out.’ But that’s the sort of thing that’s been happening here, where I’m not as well known,” he continues. “It’s strange to be 36 and still explaining the weirdness of my name.”

Cumberbatch is very well known in Britain and practically a superstar ­online thanks to his Golden Globe–nominated role as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC’s high-tech, modern-day Sherlock, which debuted in 2010. (It’s more of a cult hit here, where it airs on PBS.) “I generally don’t look to see what people are saying about me,” he says. “But when the show started to explode in Britain, and I was reading stuff online, I started to think it was real. I thought I’d walk outside my door and hundreds of people would be lining the streets, cameras would be flashing. I quickly ­realized the audience was virtual.”

Well, not really. Those are flesh-and-blood fans huddled outside the London locations of Sherlock, which is currently shooting its third season. “That’s why I have this ridiculous length and color,” says Cumberbatch, tugging at his black hair (he’s naturally auburn). “Every time I take Sherlock out of the box, I have to put the fucking hair dye on.”

This is a man who lives for details. His breakout role in Britain was the young Stephen Hawking in the BBC’s 2004 film Hawking. It introduced one of his great talents—humanizing the analytical—and a reputation for precision and obsessive preparation. To wit, this description of his Star Trek villain, a genetically engineered superman: “I wanted Harrison’s voice to have something slightly manufactured and odd, that sounded test-tube-made, where every word was sort of etched,” Cumberbatch explains. “I was keen to make his violence quick—not balletic, but purposeful. And his physique—he’s not Bane, he’s not this unsurpassable physical entity. He’s a warrior, a spearhead—someone who just carves his way through and doesn’t stop. There had to be emotion in the movement as well, and when he was at rest, it was more reptilian.”

Cumberbatch prefers the hows to the whys of acting, and he found a kindred spirit in Meryl Streep, his co-star in this fall’s August: Osage County. “I asked her how she approached the multiple layers of her part,” says Cumberbatch. “And she said, ‘I don’t know. I don’t have a process. It changes with every job, doesn’t it?’ And I thought, Oh, thank God, to hear her say it. This whole thing about technique or method? It’s bullshit. People say, ‘Oh, you’re so precise.’ But within that I work very hard to give every part a heartbeat. I learned a lot from just watching Meryl in repose. It was a bit like a Sherlock deduction actually.”

Once people have digested the ­absurdity of his name, the next reaction generally goes like this: “Oh, yeah, he’s good. But he’s so strange-looking.” Letter­man featured the Tumblr, Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch, which the actor considers “utterly brilliant.” To my mind, his big, impacted features are more reminiscent of an Easter Island head—a near parody of good looks that can have the effect of making more ­traditionally movie-star handsome actors (say, Star Trek’s Chris Pine) look dull by comparison. They can also distract from the transformative physicality he brings to every part, from buttoned-up brainiacs (Christopher ­Tietjens in the recent BBC Two mini-series Parade’s End) to the more ­explosive demands of Danny Boyle’s 2011 stage production of Frankenstein, in which Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternately played Victor ­Frankenstein and his creature.

What are the odds, I ask Cumberbatch, that you and your friend Miller would both end up playing Sherlock Holmes? (Miller is the star of the CBS hit Elementary.) “We laughed about it a lot,” he says. “I love his show. It’s a deviation, a beautiful and interesting one. Our Sherlock chimes much more with Conan Doyle’s original—I don’t think Jonny would mind me saying that.”

Where Cumberbatch’s Holmes is notably asexual (while still managing to be sexy), Miller’s is the opposite. Yet, curiously, the former has more chemistry with his Watson, played by Martin Freeman, than the latter has with his, played by Lucy Liu. Cumberbatch has a history of compelling rapports with his male ­co-stars. “I’m basically gay, is that what you’re saying?” he says with a laugh. No, it’s not sexual chemistry, just a more ­delicate version of male friendship than we’re used to seeing in American films, where relationships between bros tend to be warier and more superficial. “I see a similar tenderness between Kirk and Spock,” he says. “It speaks to the sort of friendship you’re talking about, and maybe that was part of my appeal for J.J.”

If Harrison is a bit of an enigma, the intentions of Cumberbatch’s next character, Julian Assange, were crystal clear. This time the challenges were less physical than moral. The script for November’s The Fifth Estate is based on two one-sided accounts that are not pro-­Assange, a man the actor admires: “No matter how you cut it, he’s done us a massive service, to wake us up to the zombielike way we absorb our news.”

Though he and Assange have never met, Cumberbatch says the two had “a form of communication. He hates the idea of the film and asked me not to do it, and I said to him, ‘Well, somebody is going to do it, wouldn’t you rather it’s someone who has your ear, who could steer the film to a place that’s more accurate or balanced?’ The tabloid image of him, what he fears is going to be promoted—that weird, white-haired guy wanted for rape—is so far from what we did.”

Comparatively speaking, ­December’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was just good, sweaty fun. Cumberbatch did his time at Peter Jackson’s motion-caption studio playing the titular, gold-hoarding dragon as well as the ­Necromancer and resents reports to the contrary. “It was publicized that I ‘voice’ Smaug, and I thought, Fucking hell. My voice, my motions—I worked my ass off to create that dragon!”

Otro artículo "graciosillo" de hoy 16-5-13 en Fansided, que dice qué es y qué no es Benedict Cumberbatch y acaba diciendo a los de Hollywood que espabilen, que tienen ante sus ojos a una gran estrella...

(PS - Apostaría la cabeza a que dentro de nada y menos, aparece alguien vendiendo una camiseta que diga "WHY NOT CUMBERBATCH?")

Star Trek Into Darkness: Is Benedict Cumberbatch About to Become a Huge Star?

Who the hell is Benedict Cumberbatch? If you’re asking that question, you obviously do not spend much time on the internet. I will enlighten you if you need enlightening. Let’s start by listing who Benedict Cumberbatch is not (because jokes about his name never get old or at least haven’t yet):

A janitor at Hogwarts.

A lawyer from a Dickens novel about an orphan who inherits a million dollars from a mysterious convict.

A 19th Century British naval hero or the Home Secretary during the Boer War.

A long-lost relative of Lord Grantham from Downton Abbey who shows up looking to claim his rightful inheritance and also get with the maids.

The inventor of the thing that was ultimately replaced by the cummerbund.

A wise old rabbit in a powerful allegorical novel about fascism or something of the like that you were supposed to study in school but never read because you were too busy getting high and playing Mario Kart.

Austin Powers’ new sidekick.

A character in a nonsense poem that was ripped off by John Lennon for one of those crazy LSD-fueled songs on Sgt. Pepper.

Benedict Cumberbatch IS:

A guy who is about to be hotter than crotch fire in Hollywood. By the time this week is over, only Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer will be a more sought-after commodity in the Greater Los Angeles area. Lindsay was going to jail y’all. And that lawyer lady got her stashed away at the Betty Ford clinic instead. Why doesn’t O.J. get on the horn to her? He’d be back playing golf in an hour.

Benedict Cumberbatch IS:

The villain in the new Star Trek movie. I would tell you more but I can’t. This character is shrouded in more mystery than the North Korean first lady. Nobody builds up anticipation like J.J. Abrams. Remember before Cloverfield came out? And then it turned out to kind of suck. But this time it won’t suck. Why?

You wouldn’t be asking that question if you had ever seen Benedict Cumberbatch act.

Which brings us to Sherlock. I say this as a person who under normal circumstances would rather hit himself in the face with a brick than watch any kind of whodunnit or Arthur Conan Doyle/Agatha Christie mystery-type story. Sherlock ROCKS. Not because of the stories which are the usual completely outlandish bullcrap that all comes together way too neatly in the end. It rocks because Benedict Cumberbatch.

Who has given the best performance on television over the past few years? Jon Hamm? Bryan Cranston? Damian Lewis? Michael C. Hall?

No. Cumberbatch, damn you. Cumberbatch as Sherlock.

Here is what I love about Cumberbatch as Sherlock. First of all, I love the dancerly way he moves. I love his physical flourishes. The way he punctuates his movements. It is all so consciously actorly. And that is the whole point of the character right? Sherlock is always performing. How much pain and sadness is he hiding behind those consciously flamboyant mannerisms, the boyish petulance, the deliberately over-the-top smartest-guy-in-any-imaginable-room arrogance? That’s the real mystery of the show. Not who killed some dame and took her pink cell phone.
Cumberbatch attacks this character with almost gluttonous relish. It’s like watching a fat man joyously assault a plate of fried chicken but without the disgust. Cumberbatch has more fun playing Sherlock than any human being should have doing anything. He makes acting seem greater than the greatest sex that has ever been had. But even more importantly? He makes smartness sexy as hell.

This is why I love Cumberbatch as Sherlock. WARNING: I AM ABOUT TO PREACH. In our culture right now stupidity and especially male stupidity tends to be glorified. Everything is about dumbing down especially when it comes to portrayals of maleness. It’s like you can’t be a real man unless your entire life centers around the three Bs: beer, boobs and book-ignoring. Cumberbatch’s performance in Sherlock says eff that. It says the smartest guy in the room is also the sexiest guy in the room. Especially if he is already possibly the sexiest guy in the room anyway.

Correct me if I’m wrong ladies, but Benedict Cumberbatch is hot. And you can’t be a star without sex appeal. Unless you’re Danny DeVito but he’s the exception that proves the rule. Also DeVito is funny as hell so he gets a pass.

So let’s go down the star power checklist for Cumberbatch. Talent: CHECK. Sex appeal: CHECK. Makes you have fun watching him perform: CHECK. Has a name you absolutely positively will never ever forget: CHECK. Has a prominent part in a high-profile summer movie: CHECK.

All Cumberbatch needs now is a juicy starring role to launch him into the superstar Hollywood leading man phase of his career. I know what some of you are thinking. JAMES BOND MAN. CUMBERBATCH AS JAMES BOND. He would be a lot funnier than Daniel Craig, that’s for sure. With all that theatricality and panache. He’d be Roger Moore + talent. The hair though. Something has to be done about the hair. James Bond can’t go around looking like that.

I can hear the rest of you right now. “Wait wait wait wait. Cumberbatch as a leading man? Are you daft? This guy is a CHARACTER ACTOR. Why are you trying to ruin him? Do you want him donning tights and fighting crime, tossing off lame one-liners all the while?”

Well? Why not? Why not Cumberbatch as Batman? Why must Batman be a wet blanket?

Look around the movie landscape right now and what do you see? Lots of frankly boring leading men. Leonardo DiCaprio? Brad Pitt? Channing Fricking Tatum? Why must our leading men all be muscleheads? Why must Jeremy Renner get a chance to sleepwalk his way through multiple franchise films while the scenery-chewing Cumberbatch is restricted to villain roles and TV? It’s time we started thinking outside the box here. It’s time for Hollywood to adopt a new slogan. “Why Not Cumberbatch?”

Who will make the t-shirts?

Even if he is not traditional leading man material, Cumberbatch is about to blow up. Hollywood is about to be rocked by a 100 megaton Cumberbomb. Now it’s up to Hollywood to USE this guy. Find him some solid vehicles. Don’t tell me he’s too quirky to be a major star. Don’t tell me he can only do villain roles and character parts. Don’t tell me I’m doomed to 20 years of Chris Hemsworth. That is depressing man. So depressing.

Say it with me Hollywood. WHY NOT CUMBERBATCH?

And seriously, what happened to you Jeremy Renner? Hansel and Gretel? I thought I knew you man.

Artículo reciente en una revista rusa (en la página de Tumblr en la que está traducida en inglés, no pone de qué revista se trata):

Alexey Vasiliev. About new stars. Benedict Cumberbatch


It is a widely held misconception that the acting craft can be learned. It serves to console a broad segment of people attempting the profession, and is also financially profitable for makers of films and TV series – as long as it is physically impossible for the large number of films and TV series currently produced to all star Benedict Cumberbatch. When in “The Hound of Baskerville” he delivers the phrase, not the most dramatic one in the world, “I have no friends”, he spurts out the word “friends” like a rabbit suffering from hay fever. Watson is mortally offended, but at that same moment we all wish for no friends as well. Don’t try to rehearse this in front of the mirror: you won’t succeed. To be able to do this, you need that blunt, wide, prominent rabbit nose that leads to the unyielding, lazy face: the mouth skewed down toward the neck, where the slightest dissatisfaction forms a triple chin, and the flying apart eyebrows, under which diamonds of gray-gray-blue eyes hide tiny dots of pupils. (How would you solve the problem without these eyes if, as did Cumberbatch in “Third star”, you got the role of a man on morphine? Would you have had lights flashed at you until you went blind? But for brown eyes that would be useless.)

Cumberbatch is a great actor because you can follow the activity on his face with unflagging interest until you keel over. This is a nature’s gift. Then there is the superior body language and noble deportment of a grandson of a prominent British Army officer active in two World Wars (precisely the capacity in which the meticulous Spielberg used Cumberbatch in “War Horse”, a film about World War I). Now, certainly, there are other actors, those who train and toil, gain weight and glue on fake noses, and who do get some love, money, and even sometimes Oscars, but to have a face that can be read like a hefty detective novel or contemplated the way the Japanese contemplate cherry blossoms – that one can only be born with. Directors happily integrate that face into scenes of a universal scale. In “Third Star” his face emerges in the starry sky without disturbing its harmony like it had always been there. In the film’s conclusion Cumberbatch’s character accepts death of his own free will, going under water with the facial expression of a babe unborn – this is how we see embryos in test tubes. In the prologue of “Sherlock” Watson complains to his therapist: “Nothing happens to me”, and then across the backdrop of the London panorama – voila! – Cumberbatch’s face appears – and we immediately get it: “Something is about to happen – something huge!” In “Star Trek Into Darkness” he gazes through the windshield of a helicopter in flames – surely this is how God gazed at the Earth while creating volcanoes.

Easily blending into the landscape, that face itself can become a landscape with a changing weather and an interplay of light and shade. In the prologue of “Stuart: A Life Backwards”, Cumberbatch’s character is behind the wheel, listening to an audiotape with the voice of a deceased friend – an alcoholic sociopath (Tom Hardy). In the span of half a minute he covers a whole octave, all four seasons-worth of emotions, from an uncontrollable smile of a person hearing a beloved friend’s “Hello”, to eyes dripping with tears. People who have questions about Cumberbatch’s acting technique can be directed straight to that scene. “Golden”, says a fly-by American girl about his Luke behind his back after he returns from working as a policeman in Malaysia for a bit of a life pause in his English home village, in an adaptation of Agatha Christy’s novel “Murder Is Easy”. “You’re just too nice for this world”, tells him Anna Chancellor who plays his mother in the incomparable six-part Hugh Laurie comedy “Fortysomething”. In that scene Cumberbatch’s hair is hidden under a thick knit cap that resembles a condom. It’s remarkable – watching his STID colleague Chris Pine you constantly think how unlucky the guy is: he could have been very handsome if not for his too high forehead. Yet Cumberbatch’s high forehead in the “condom” only makes him more handsome. Then again, the streaked with highlights fringe of a British intelligence officer issue 1973 in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” enhances his looks as well. And Shelock’s curls, and Alexander’s glasses in “Stuart”, and the hat the hero dying of sarcoma in “Third Star”… Everything suits him. Because it is impossible to disfigure the sea or the sky.

In “Sherlock” Cumberbatch transforms the world for which he is too nice into a series of exaggerated, clichéd facial expressions. Here is how one smiles while offering a coffee (to check whether the sugar contains a drug). Here is the look to wear while asking to be let into the door (to search an apartment). The means of facial expression are as well worn as those of words. Cumberbatch is an actor, and he shows us that people by and large are living others’ lives using traditional actor tools – borrowed facial expressions. This is what he makes a mockery of. Where did you learn this ingratiating look, that polite smile – from your mother, the electrician, or the TV presenter? In this case facial expressions are a symbol. Behind this wicked parody of the shared facial vocabulary he hides a question for everyone: where are you yourself? Maybe you should reassess and realize yourself as Sherlock realized himself in creating a previously non-existent profession – that of a consulting detective. (In “Third Star” Cumberbatch delivered the reverse story, a deafening tragedy of not getting to realize yourself.)

If you don’t feel sorry for yourself, feel sorry for God who created you precisely for – what? Before going into acting, not having the looks or even the name equivalent of our hero’s looks and name, ask yourself that question; it can lead you to yourself and therefore to freedom and truth. Freedom and truth are brilliant! But leave the screen to Cumberbatch – this is what he was born for.

'I THOUGHT I'D LOST THE SHERLOCK PART OVER A BISCUIT...'
Benedict Cumberbatch talks to Siobhan Synnot about Victorian detectives, Star Trek, big lizards and how he owes it all to afternoon tea
It’s close to midnight, and in a north London house two children snooze peacefully in bed surrounded by their Christmas booty, unaware that heinous deeds are being plotted in their kitchen. Every so often, one of the conspirators cocks an ear, then pads off at warp speed to check the kids are still out for the count, before resuming their part in evil doing.

Of all the items for inclusion as a DVD extra on Star Trek Into Darkness, Benedict Cumberbatch’s audition sounds the most intriguing. When producer-director JJ Abrams asked him to tape two scenes to test his suitability as the villain who brings chaos to the USS Enterprise in his science-fiction sequel, Cumberbatch cleared his schedule. Then, when he was unable to find a camera crew in London available during the Christmas holidays, he cleared space on his phone and hit ‘record’ instead.

‘People were knocking on my door, saying that while this was a holiday in the UK, LA was still working, and I had to send a tape now,’ he recalls. Eventually his best friend, actor Adam Ackland, offered his kitchen as a makeshift studio. ‘By the time I arrived, they had put my godson and his sister to bed, so I squatted under the one good overhead light, with Adam’s wife Alice balanced on two chairs holding my phone, and Adam feeding the lines to me.

‘Really they had enough on their plate without this strung-out actor in their kitchen, but we eventually shot three takes of each scene. Then it took me a day to work out how to compress the file and email it to JJ.’

Surely Abrams was so impressed by this technological resourcefulness that he gave him the job straight away? Cumberbatch laughs ruefully. ‘No, because it turned out he was on holiday. I was furious.’ But on 2 January an email dropped from Abrams – ‘Do you want to come and play?’

This is not the first time Cumberbatch has won a major role after co-starring with teapots and pans. He auditioned for Sherlock Holmes at the producer’s flat over tea and biscuits. ‘I thought I’d made a mistake taking the biscuit because that wasn’t a very Holmes thing to do. I thought I might have lost the part because of that.’

Show runner and writer Steven Moffat was looking to reboot Holmes into modern London while retaining the spirit of Conan Doyle’s show-off sleuth with brains to spare. Blackmail notes no longer arrive in the post but on a smartphone, and Dr Watson writes up Holmes’s casework on a blog, but the series still roughly adhered to the cornerstones of traditional Holmes – including the big lethal confrontation between the hero and Moriarty at the end of series two.

The show is also 36-year-old Cumberbatch’s first exercise in protracted secrecy; he refuses to offer any clues about how Holmes could survive jumping off a tall building. All we know is that there’s a third series, currently shooting, and Cumberbatch is back as Holmes. Three days after Abrams’s email, I met Cumberbatch to talk about his role in War Horse. His recruitment to Star Trek was all over the internet, with Trekkies analysing the choice and its implications with Vulcanesque thoroughness. ‘Go on,’ I say, ‘there are only two of us in the room. What sort of superpowered bad guy are you?’ Cumberbatch throws me a wry look. ‘I can’t say anything. Sorry to go cold on you, but there are lawyers in the cupboards right here with us.’

Keeping schtum must be one of the hardest aspects of Cumberbatch’s recent rapid rise to the A-list. Three years earlier, he could be raffishly indiscreet. He had just been horse riding, and needed no prompting to reveal that these cramming equestrian skills were for a new movie with Steven Spielberg. A born storyteller, he chatted easily in long, fluent paragraphs about auditioning for Madonna, who struggled to work her handheld camera, or a blithe account of filming Sherlock on a set adjacent to Matt Smith and the Doctor Who complex in Cardiff (‘Hello, Doctor.’ ‘Hi, Sherlock.’). He also gave me his phone number, in case I needed more quotes. I’m sure it’s been changed now.

Cumberbatch has become such hot property that he is in almost everything at the moment. He sports a bleach-blond look as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in a movie called The Fifth Estate, studied lizards at London Zoo to provide the voice and CGI moves for the dragon Smaug in The Hobbit, and has agreed to step into Leonardo DiCaprio’s shoes for The Imitation Game, a film about the brilliant British mathematician Alan Turing.

This kind of workload would have Sherlock Holmes slapping on the nicotine patches and playing soothing music, but Cumberbatch, who came to acting slightly later than friends such as James McAvoy, is now determined to make the most of this new attention.

Along the way he has acquired a fanbase, the Cumberbitches, although he frets that the term is pejorative: ‘Cumberbabes’ is his preferred alternative. There are discussion forums, internet shrines and fan fiction, which tends to home in on Holmes. Something about the scene in Buckingham Palace, where Holmes is naked except for a sheet, seems to have established the world’s greatest detective as a lustbucket. ‘There’s some really weird crossbreeding stuff,’ notes Cumberbatch of the storytelling. ‘When I was playing Smaug in The Hobbit, suddenly there were lots of dragons with purple scarves flying around.’

Cumberbatch has also been flying around, dotting between the UK, the US and New Zealand. Since his 12-year relationship with actor Olivia Poulet ended, there has been no serious girlfriend based in any of these places. Three years ago he had remarked rather wistfully that he would like to be a father by 40, but dating in public is a challenge. When he attended the Golden Globes for Sherlock, he took his PA Emily as his guest. When the paparazzi saw Cumberbatch getting into a car with her after the ceremony, they assumed this was a new chapter in his romantic history. ‘The flashes went off to the point that I couldn’t actually see. Poor girl, she’s never experienced that before. I’d never experienced that before. They were hanging off the bonnet of the car.’ The punchline? Emily is also his niece.

Perhaps because he spent a long time doing small roles in big films before the big bang of Sherlock, Cumberbatch is determined not to get carried away by the new heat he’s packing. ‘I am very flattered, although I don’t take it too seriously,’ he says. ‘I mean, I still have all the same weird things about me.’

The other thing that keeps him grounded is seeing the ups and downs of acting first hand. An only child, his mother is Wanda Ventham, a comedy actress who played Cassandra’s mum in Only Fools And Horses and Lesley Ash’s mother in Men Behaving Badly. Her son has inherited her wide cheekbones. His 6ft height is from his father, actor Timothy Carlton. Neither of them wanted him to follow in their footsteps, and hoped an expensive public-school education might set him on a different path. ‘They kept pointing out how uncertain their lifestyle was, and for a while I thought I might be a lawyer – after watching Rumpole Of The Bailey.’

How far did he pursue this? ‘I got to the stage of looking at degrees at Oxbridge, but a lot of people told me that barristers never knew where their next job was coming from… It sounded a bit like acting, so I stuck with that instead.’

From the age of eight, he was a boarder at Brambletye School in West Sussex. But if his parents had hoped to keep his mind off acting, they were rather scuppered by Harrow, where he landed his first stage role as Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The breakthrough came when he played a grudging Salieri in a university production of Amadeus. ‘Afterwards we were in the car park and my dad said, “You are better than I was or ever will be” – which wasn’t true because he’s a great actor – “and you will have a really good time doing this for a living.” Which was a huge thing for him to say, and an emotional turning point for me, and I cried. Having got his blessing, I wanted to make him proud.’

Both parents stayed with him during Star Trek’s lengthy shoot. On set, he formed a small British clique with co-stars Simon Pegg and Alice Eve, watching British TV relayed on a Slingbox and drinking tea.

Cumberbatch, it turns out, is less science-fiction nerd, more a real science nerd. Earlier this spring, he was guest director of the Cambridge Science Festival. He also has a keen interest in astronomy, and counts Stephen Hawking as a friend since Cumberbatch played the astrophysicist as a young man in a 2004 TV movie. ‘He told me, “You’re better looking than me; I was more scruffy than you,” which isn’t true because I’ve seen the photographs. But he has got a good sense of humour. It can take a while for a oneliner to come out, but when it does, it’s fantastic.’

Consequently, Cumberbatch’s biggest thrill on Star Trek wasn’t boarding the Enterprise or trying on a Starfleet costume, but the filming on location at the National Ignition Facility in San Francisco. In the film, it doubles as Starfleet Academy, but its day job is housing the world’s largest laser. ‘It’s where Edward Moses is trying to create hydrogen fusion by using lasers fired at extraordinary speeds through various lenses,’ says Cumberbatch, sounding as gleeful as a ship’s engineer who has found a hidden cache of dilithium crystals.

‘If they can hit this target of hydrogen – which is half the breadth of a human hair in this huge cell – they will create this alternate energy supply, which could power San Francisco for a year with one burst.

‘So when we arrived in our costumes, with our cameras and dollies and lights, there was this huge tradeoff between scientists and film people, where we had the amazing privilege of being there, while they loved this crazy circus coming to town.’

Bueno, no sabía donde dejar esto, porque no es un artículo pero tampoco son fotos....así que lo dejo por aquí. Es un extenso comentario sobre las impresiones de una persona de Munich que ha participado como extra en la película que está rodando Ben junto con su amigo Adam, "Little Favour" y que donó una cierta cantidad de dinero no especificada para poder serlo. Yo no digo nada, pero.... no sé, todo este tema de la peli me lo parece a mí o una de dos, Ben no está cómodo con todo el lío este o en realidad es un animal de los negocios y va a saco. No sé. Después de leer la historia que me ha dejado un regusto raro, sólo sé que no haría de extra en ningún sitio (a menos que me pagaran un pastizal o necesitara el dinero)  trabaje quien trabaje en la peli, como si es el mismísimo Cumberbatch.

Mensaje  aliciauk el Miér Jun 19, 2013 8:48 am

Yo tampoco se como responder citando, le he dado a todas las pestañillas y nada.
Toda esta historia es muy rara, empezando por el hecho de tener que "pagar" por salir de extra en el corto, no me extraña que Benedict pareciese avergonzado,(es que hay que tener...)
Benedict es un hombre adulto, que tienen casi 40 años y ha tenido experiencias de las que te hacen madurar sí o sí, no creo que se haya dejado engañar, tiene que apechugar con las consecuencias, los extras, cuando pagan tienen mayores expectativas y exigen, tienen derecho al pataleo, y con toda la razón.
Este chico alemán llega a decir que hubiese preferido que Benedict no hubiese aparecido, teniendo en cuenta la forma en que lo hizo. 
No les ha podido salir peor, no digo nada de lo que se puede liar en el caso de que corten las escenas en las que salen los extras.......(¿estafa?).
 
Su amigo Adam se me está atragantando mucho, mucho.

Os quiero. Adoro este foro. Cada día tengo más claro que somos de las pocas fans que tenemos la cabeza sobre los hombros, porque he llegado a leer tantas tonterías por ahí, que aún lo estoy flipando. Este hombre y su amigo son dos tíos con... me voy a callar, y que saben perfectamente lo que están haciendo. No sé si Ben es que es así cuando está cansado o es su verdadero yo o simplemente todos tenemos buenos y malos días, pero tratar así al personal que te está pagando porque así lo has pedido tú y te has comprometido a lo que te has comprometido, fuera idea de él y de su amigo o sólo de su amigo, pero él lo ha aceptado así, me parece de muy mala educación. Lo del amigo ya es para coger tus cosas y pirarte del sitio. Es la primera vez que oigo que un extra pague para ser extra y encima esto... Además parece que los extras sean casi hasta innecesarios, era todo un caos, no les daban indicaciones de nada y luego en cambio les decían que como no había salido bien la toma se eliminaba, pero eso se lo decían luego segundones después de preguntar ellos, porque si no, ni eso. Esto me suena a "como han pagado, hagamos como que los grabamos y que van a salir en la peli y así cumplimos con nuestro compromiso, quedamos de pm y ellos tan contentos, pero no pongamos cinta en la cámara...." o es esto o es que esa peli es más que un "Little favour" una "Little mess", es decir un desastre de organización. 

Y lo que dice Issa, este hombre tropieza con la "incomodidad" fan una y otra vez y todo por la pasta... si no, de qué iba él a meterse en una caravana a soltarle un "gracias por venir y darnos la pasta" a un grupo de gente que no conoce de nada? A la vista quedó que estaba super incómodo, no ya que estuviera cansado, que seguro que también, si no que parecía que lo que hacía lo estaba haciendo a la pura fuerza. Ben tiene muchas cosas buenas, eso lo tengo clarísimo, pero aquí se le ve el plumero y de qué manera! Una cosa es estar entre sus compis de la profesión y otra muy distinta entre gente normal...

En fin, menos mal que tengo este rinconcito para poder comentar lo que está bien claro. No entiendo como la gente no puede ver esto, no lo entiendo.

Es verdad. Se los come. No les deja ni las miguitas. Solo hay que parar atención en que Ben hace todas las escenas y los diálogos más dramáticos. Es más me gustaria haber cronometrado sus diálogos para comprobar (como creo que es) que tiene las parrafadas más largas. La gesticulación..... perecta. El tono de villano.... increible. Total como ya sabiamos nosotras.. un gran ACTOR.

Re: Artículos de prensa sobre Benedict Cumberbatch

Mensaje  araceli el Lun Jul 08, 2013 5:58 pm

Ahi va el articulo. Llegad al ultimo párrafo no tiene desperdicio:

Con Star Trek (2009), la regeneración de la franquicia de ciencia ficción creada por Gene Roddenberry en los sesenta, J.J. Abrams consiguió rizar el rizo de lo imposible: contentar a los fans más fundamentalistas de la legendaria serie (y ya sabemos cómo las gastan los trekkies) y a la vez insertar las aventuras de la tripulación del Enterprise en un espectáculo inteligente y sofisticado, que aunaba las cabriolas espacio temporales de Perdidos -todavía en el pasado reciente del director- pero sin desnaturalizar la esencia pop del invento. Todo ello cumpliendo con el expediente de lo que se ha venido a llamar cine de verano, guiado por la necesidad constante de golpes de efecto y apabullantes secuencias de acción que percutan los oídos del espectador.

Pues bien: su secuela, la nueva y flamante virguería Star Trek: en la Oscuridad, puede presumir de estar a la altura de su precedente y se erige desde ahora mismo como una de las buenas películas de este verano 2013. La cinta comienza fuerte, y eso como poco, nada menos que con un homenaje evidente a En busca del Arca Perdida que continúa como un ejemplar relato de aventuras y suspense construido, esta vez, en torno a la pura y dura caza de un villano. Una búsqueda de un esquivo terrorista espacial que da el pie perfecto al fichaje estrella, Benedict Cumberbatch, al tiempo que respeta el sustrato humanista de la serie original (la Enterprise está poblada, al fin y al cabo, por científicos y no por soldados) hilando fino con el que es, claramente, uno de los guiones más abiertamente políticos de la franquicia... algo que a diferencia de El Hombre de Acero y otros shows épicos recientes, jamás trabaja en contra del dinamismo de la historia. Al contrario: Star Trek. En la Oscuridad evita los delirios de grandeza y rebosa de incesantes batallas cuerpo a cuerpo y espaciales, complementadas con inteligentes giros argumentales y una reivindicación del arte del cliffhanger que delata, en el mejor de los sentidos, el origen televisivo de su autor: narrar y tirar para delante por encima de todo.

En efecto, los requiebros del primer Star Trek son sustituidos aquí por una trama más lineal, una persecución a contrarreloj aparentemente simple pero que acaba confirmando una vez más a J.J. Abrams como un director, en primer lugar, habituado al suspense pero sobre todo, un maestro de la reescritura cinematográfica. El autor de Super 8 demuestra en su segunda película de la franquicia su respeto al original tomando por banda Star Trek II: La Ira de Khan (1982), la secuela más celebrada de la antigua serie, pero sólo para desarmar y diseccionar su referencia con todas las herramientas cinematográficas disponibles. Sin revelar demasiado de la trama, dado que En la Oscuridad tarda algún tiempo en desvelar sus cartas, la película repite en su desenlace, pero invertido, una de las escenas más celebradas y dramáticas de la original, con Spock y Kirk al borde de la muerte y separados por una barrera invisible que rubrica su amistad. Respetar el molde, pero a la vez romperlo: se trata sólo de uno de los múltiples guiños-licencia que Abrams hace a la cinta de Nicholas Meyer, que por cierto se caracterizó por recuperar en pantalla a uno de los villanos más celebrados de la serie, el interpretado por Ricardo Montalbán.

Y para acabar, un apunte sobre este último. Pese a las excelentes presencias de Zachary Quinto y Chris Pine, el británico Benedict Cumberbatch se hace con la película con la facilidad y contundencia de una exquisita estrella de cine. El Sherlock de la serie BBC interpreta su personaje allí donde se cruzan Shakespeare y los cómics Marvel (ver sus escenas enjaulado cual Hannibal) y el resultado de su interpretación nos hace caer rendidos ante la monumental propuesta, un enredo de narices envuelto en cinetismo extremo, un ejemplo de cine de aventuras repleto de humor y melodrama.

Artículo de un periódico de Venezuela, el Ultimas Noticias. Me hace mucha ilusión poner esto aquí porque es del país donde me crié y pasé gran parte de mi vida.Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy 

Sonia Hernández | ÚN.- Benedict Cumberbatch vive un verdadero Viaje a las estrellas. Y no solo porque ha recibido todos los elogios posibles como el villano de la más reciente entrega de la saga, sino porque en apenas tres años ha logrado ubicarse en la exclusiva constelación de los superastros del cine y la TV.

Lanzado a la vorágine de la fama por la serie de la BBC Sherlock (2010), en la que da vida a un Holmes cerebral, moderno, dramático y sociópata, el inglés recibió hace poco una nominación al Emmy 2013 por su trabajo en la miniserie Parade's End. Una muestra más de que vive el mejor momento de su ya exitosa carrera.


Oriundo de Londres (19 de julio de 1976), Cumberbatch se decidió por la actuación tras impresionar a sus profesores en varias de las obras de Shakespeare en las que participó.
Su primer gran éxito lo obtuvo con Hawking (2004), un filme para televisión en el que personificó al científico Ste-phen Hawking, y con el que logró una nominación como Mejor actor en los Bafta.

Cintas como Expiación, deseo y pecado (2007), La otra Bolena (2008), Van Gogh: Painted With Words (TV, 2010), Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy (El topo, 2011), Caballo de guerra (2011) y Star Trek Into Darkness (Viaje a las estrellas: En la oscuridad, 2013) han servido para consolidar su estatus de estrella internacional.

Dueño de un talento interpretativo de amplio rango emocional, una personalidad fuerte y una voz grave y distintiva como principales avales, Cumberbatch es actualmente el actor que se pelean directores de la talla de Steven Spielberg y Peter Jackson.

Guillermo del Toro, por citar uno, ya ha manifestado que lo quiere para la versión que prepara de Frankenstein. Eso, a pesar de que ya lo tiene fichado para su cinta Crimson Park, que se estrenará en 2015.

La Benedict-manía llega a tal punto que el actor incluso ya es considerado un símbolo sexual. Aunque no tiene el físico del galán hollywoodense, Cumberbatch cuenta con una legión de fanáticas tan efusivas como las de Brad Pitt o Johnny Depp.

Y todo eso solo ha sido el inicio. Con cuatro películas por estrenar en 2013, y una nueva temporada de Sherlock, resulta elemental que el ascenso de Benedict Cumberbatch aún no tiene límites.

Re: Artículos de prensa sobre Benedict Cumberbatch

Mensaje  sherlockvictim el Sáb Ago 17, 2013 1:12 am

Esto no es un artículo de prensa pero me pareció que era el mejor sitio donde ponerlo.  Es lo que cuenta alguien que estuvo en Top Gear de público. Interesante porque habla de lo que no salió en cámara.  Es muuy largo pero ahí va

After the opening discussion about Sherlock ‘not being dead’, Jeremy Clarkson asked Benedict about the whole Star Trek Into Darkness experience, to which Benedict replied in the warmest terms. Benedict encouraged Jeremy to get JJ Abrams on the show – describing the Star Trek director as a polymath – and predicting that he would do a great time out on the track.

Jeremy then asked about Benedict’s Star Trek audition, with Benedict recounting the whole kitchen table drama once again. Benedict went on to thank Adam for his invaluable help and acknowledged his friend’s presence in the Top Gear studio. Clarkson suggested that the quality of the iPhone recording must have been awful, with BC surprising him by saying that it was actually pretty good and that it had taken a whole day to compress. Benedict took great pleasure in telling Jeremy and the studio audience that he plays Khan in the film – “I can finally say that now!” and then immediately panicked and asked if this would be airing in south east Asia…to which Clarkson’s answer was a resounding yes.

After Benedict had given us his particularly candid thoughts on two character relationships – and a quick foray into the world of Sherlock/John Watson fanfic - the discussion moved on to Benedict’s parents. **People of a nervous disposition are best skipping the next paragraph**

Jeremy told the audience that both of BC’s parents were actors, and then showed BC a very glamorous photograph of his mum, Wanda Ventham, posing alongside a futuristic looking car. Benedict recalled the image being from ‘UFO’ – a 1970s sci-fi series where his mum played Colonel Virginia Lake. On hearing this, Clarkson suddenly blurted out that he remembered the series extremely well and that it was highly likely that he had in fact **nked to scenes involving BC’s mother. Benedict’s reaction was priceless. He said nothing. He simply stared round at the audience, with one eye closed in grimace, whilst biting his bottom lip. Eventually, Benedict admitted that he actually had no idea how to respond to that statement, and JC told him not to worry because there was no way that any of it would be making it to the final edit. BC said that was irrelevant as it would be on twitter by the time he’d finished the interview. And of course he was right.

The conversation then moved on, with Jeremy commenting that he really hoped that people would watch the show on Sunday, and that BBC1’s Countryfile had been giving Top Gear a hard time in the ratings. Benedict said he couldn’t understand why, and spoke straight to camera - asking people to stop what they were doing, turn over, and watch. Clarkson had to remind him that this wouldn’t really work if they weren’t watching at the time… with Benedict saying something along the lines of people not needing any more cute scenes of badgers in their lives.

The next topic of conversation, unsurprisingly, centered on cars. After the mini, Benedict had his second car, the Mitsubishi Colt, right up to and during the first series of Sherlock filming. And like the mini, he pretty much drove it into the ground. Despite friends telling him that he couldn’t possibly be seen out and about driving such a vehicle, he hung on to it until he started doing the voiceovers for Jaguar – with the rather happy result being the loan of a rather more appropriate car (I can’t remember the make, I have no idea about cars, but Clarkson was impressed!)

Clarkson mused over there being a certain north London actor set who had all taken to driving motorbikes round town instead of cars (he cited Fassbender and James MacAvoy). Benedict agreed, saying that it was actually MacAvoy who had first persuaded him of the benefit of two wheels – which resulted in him acquiring a Vespa. And after that he moved on to a Honda (again apologies I have no idea of the various letters and numbers which followed…) which he still owns now.

The carjacking section of the interview was pretty much as broadcast. My personal view was that the discussion felt rather out of place - particularly on a factual entertainment programme that is heavily skewed towards the ‘ent’. Clarkson already seemed in possession of many of the ‘facts’, with Benedict verifying a few specifics – e.g. he was pushed into the car boot because the hijackers had clearly thought he was the one most likely to cause trouble – in actual fact he had merely been attempting to stand up after spending so long sat on the front seat with his back to the windscreen. He felt sick and wobbly and thought he was going to pass out.

Clarkson then revealed his motive for bring the subject up. His daughter had recently gone through a similar experience, also in South Africa. Luckily, she had managed to escape quickly and without harm.

The conversation stayed with cars, with Benedict recounting the tale of a fairly recent speeding fine and subsequent court appearance. He had been driving along the Westway (one of the main roads west out of central London) and was doing slightly more than 40 in the 40 mph zone (I travel on this road a lot and this particular speed restriction is a bit nuts) when he got pulled over. He pleaded with the official to give him the speeding fine there and then as it was just a few days before he was due to leave the UK for New Zealand and then LA (Hobbit and Star Trek filming). He was also about to have builders take over his home and was worried that the paperwork would get ignored/thrown away. And that is exactly what happened. He ended up missing the payment notification, was duly summonsed, and had to go to court, where, to his great surprise, the judge agreed that the speed restriction was ludicrous and reduced the amount he was to have paid!

I’m so glad that they kept the punch scene in! Little has been edited out of the tx, but the Top Gear audience did have the pleasure of watching ‘Benedict the director’ in action. Benedict pretty much controlled the whole set up – surveying the scene, telling the cameramen where to stand, advising which one would do the pick up, and then positioning Clarkson properly so that the desired effect would be achieved. Clarkson appeared a bit blown away by how effortlessly Benedict had the scene prep’d and ready for action!

Clarkson then steered the discussion in the direction of The Lap. He started by asking what Benedict had found more scary – the Top Gear lap, or his 2010 appearance on Have I Got News For You. Benedict was in absolutely not doubt whatsoever that it was the latter. Clarkson, who has also hosted the BBC1 game show, concurred, saying it was probably one of the most terrifying experiences of his life. Benedict talked about the stress of having so many questions to get through (the actual recording lasts around 90 minutes) and recalled the autocue being a particular nightmare as it didn’t always keep up with the narrator. He also joked that it was a ‘big laundry day’ the next day….

And so to the lap! Clarkson said that he’d been chatting to Adam earlier and remarked that he seemed more nervous than Benedict appeared to be. Benedict agreed, saying that he hadn’t really had that much interest in cars, until today. But he’d learnt an awful lot very fast! Clarkson queried whether he was a competitive person, Benedict shrugged, erm absolutely!

Clarkson then told Benedict that he had never known any other celebrity spend so much time out on the track, and get through so many practice laps. Clarkson admitted that the celebrity of the week usually came along, plugged their thing, and then did a couple of circuits before going for it. The Top Gear presenter seemed genuinely impressed that that Benedict had taken it all so seriously. Benedict seemed a little embarrassed (‘shameful’ was the phrase he used), but said that he had wanted to make the most of it and was ‘on holiday’ so why not!

The rest was pretty much as broadcast, and I don’t think they cut anything from the lap footage, well apart from bleeping out mother****** of course!)

And that was pretty much it. While waiting for my car back to the station, I chatted to the guys at the security gate who said that they’d found Benedict a particular charming guest – and they showed off their newly acquired signed photo – which already had pride of place on the Star In a Reasonably Priced Car celebrity photo wall.

Más bien parece que quien ha escrito el artículo no sabe mucho acerca de él, es como si le hubiera tocado en la rifa del reparto de artículos de la mañana y se ha limitado a escribir lo que puede ser más llamativo, pero sin profundizar demasiado.
