Benedict is grateful to supportive fans
Benedict Cumberbatch knows he’s taking on roles that will grow his fan base of Cumberbitches – but he welcomes them into the fold.
The Sherlock actor stars in Hollywood movies Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and he’s aware that it’ll bring him even more female fans.
‘I know, I know… I keep dancing into the flames, don’t I?’ says Benedict, 36.
‘But to be honest, they’re incredibly supportive, very smart and very loyal. Whatever your level of exposure or support, you know, things can get a bit weird.
‘But, by and large, they’ve been extraordinary.’
