Benedict admires stars like Keira Knightley for their focus

Benedict Cumberbatch doesn’t find it easy learning his lines, but he has got used to knuckling down to do it.

The Sherlock star works had to memorise scripts.

‘Acting definitely gives you discipline but I have to say I’m not the best example,’ Benedict, 36, tells Metro.

‘I see others who are amazing, such as Keira [Knightley], who’s dyslexic; it’s pretty f***in’ impressive what she does.

‘Her work ethic is phenomenal. And Meryl Streep, of course.’
