Benedict has devoted fans all over the world

It’s not just British viewers who’ve fallen hard for Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch.

When the actor starred in Frankenstein at London’s National Theatre last year, some eager fans flew halfway across the world to see him after the stage show.

‘There were an awful lot of people,’ Benedict, 35, tells TV Buzz.

‘It was 12 o’clock, I was tired and I was saying I’ve really got to get home but there are people going: “We’ve travelled all the way from South Korea!”

‘It was incredible.’
