Some time ago, a certain Sherlock paid a visit to Malaysia – which is why it’s only apt to give the man a little limelight! Announcing Benedict Cumberbatch as our Eye Want Candy of the week!
Who Is The ‘Benedict Cumberbatch’?
Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch, or more adoringly known as Benedict Cumberbatch, is a charming Englishman with acting as his profession. Born in 1976 as a native of London, the thespian got his big break when he portrayed Stephen Hawking in a 2004 British television program.
His spectacular performance gained the attention of critics and fans and eventually led to his first BAFTA nomination.
Since then, he has appearances in numerous films and TV shows – such as BBC’s Sherlock, The Hobbit, Star Trek: Into the Darkness, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Twelve Years A Slave. In simple terms, Cumberbatch is one internationally known chap.
To those of you whose stalking attempts (for when he was in Malaysia to host the Laureus Awards) were futile, we hope that this piece will help light up your day a little bit. Below are few fun facts you should know about Benedict Cumberbatch.
5. He Taught English To Monks!
Before Benedict Cumberbatch took up drama studies in Manchester University, he was a GAP overseas student volunteer at India for a year. During his stay, the beautiful and talented man had taught English to the resident monks in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery.
Mr. Cumberbatch the English teacher? Oh, just tell us where to sign up because we are so ready for that!
4. He Doesn’t Like The Term ‘Cumberbitches’!
Although fans adoringly label themselves as ‘Cumberitches,’ the man does not appreciate the term – specifically because of the ‘b’ word. In an interview for The Times, Cumberbatch shares that: “It’s not even polite. I won’t allow you to be my bitches. I think it sets feminism back so many notches. You are… Cumberpeople.”
3. He Is A Colouring Book!
