Info About Benedict Cumberbatch Edit
Benedict Cumberbatch began performing at a young age whilst at Brambletye School in West Sussex. Immediately upon leaving school he spent a year at Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Darjeeling in India teaching English. After returning he enrolled in the university of Manchester to study drama. After completion of this degree he continued further study at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Cumberbatch has dreams of performing in the theatre for William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
His role in Sherlock has led to many awards such as Best Actor (Sherlock and Parade's End) - Broadcasting Press Guild awards. His performance has also landed him roles in many new films such as Star Trek Into Darkness and 12 Years a slave.
I feel that Benedict Cumberbatch portrays the character of Sherlock Holmes extremely well as he is a spitting image of the depiction I have of Sherlock in my head.
