The young Benedict would be impressed by his older self
Benedict Cumberbatch thinks his 10-year-old self would be very excited about how his showbiz career has gone so far.
The actor, who stars as villain John Harrison in sci-fi flick Star Trek Into Darkness, could never have dreamed as a youngster that he’d land a role in the legendary series.
‘I really don’t know [what my 10-year-old self would think],’ says Benedict, 36.
‘He’d be pretty chuffed. What was I doing when I was 10?
‘I was probably playing Ann in Half A Sixpence at school at that time, so the idea of being in a Star Trek film was probably very far from Ann’s mind, and mine!
‘He would have been really, really surprised, and wouldn’t quite have believed it. He still doesn’t.’
