Q: Mr. Cumberbatch,
What was your favorite prank, done by you or to you, on or off set.
Let me know if you would like suggestions :)
Neutron cream. Come on, people!
PS. Anytime you’re in a restaurant with a group of friends and one of them goes to the restroom or bathroom (presume there are many nationalities involved in this AMA), tell the waiter that it’s that person’s birthday. Not only is it fun to embarrass the hell out of the poor victim, but you get free cake in the bargain.
Q: My wife would sincerely like to know if you are wearing anything under your robe….. please respond, this is important for our mental wellbeing.
A: You should be asking who’s naked under it with me.
Q: Nutella or Marmite?
I don’t have a question. I just wanted to say that I think you are lovely in Sherlock and that my husband named our fish after you.
I hope that fish lives a long life. Don’t put it near any rooftops.
Q: This AMA has exceeded my wildest expectations. Has your sass increased since working with Martin Freeman, or were you always this sassy?
A: Well of course Martin will be furious unless I say I owe it all to him. And believe me, his wrath is more fearsome than any dragons.
Q: What do you think of your fans calling themselves ‘Cumbercookies’? That way when we all come together, we’ll be the ‘Cumberbatch’ :D
A: It’s great! You could call yourself the Cumbergirls, and then when you come together you’d be a flock. Or you could call yourself the Cumbertadpoles and that way you’d be the Cumberspawn…Wait!…Ew! Don’t do that.
I’m afraid I still don’t have the answer to this, sorry!
PETITION MILESTONE: 10% OF SIGNATURES COLLECTED IN JUST 3 DAYS!
Just 3 days since The Pixel Project launched our petition to invite Benedict Cumberbatch to become the 4th and final Celebrity Male Role Model for The Pixel Project’s Celebrity Male Role Model campaign, we have passed the 250-signature mark!
Thank you so much to all CumberCollective members, fellow anti-Violence Against Women activists, Pixel Project supporters and survivors of gender-based violence who have signed and shared your stories so far!
It’s not over yet though because we still have over 2,000 signatures to collect!
So please sign the petition and leave your comment/share your story with Mr Cumberbatch here: http://is.gd/BC4RoleModel
We will be printing out every signature and comment to send to Benedict once we have reached/surpassed 2,500 signatures! So whatever you have to tell him about supporting the end to violence against women or even your personal story of surviving gender-based violence will be included.
Personally, no. I think he may be a little stand off-ish at times when it comes to the press and his private life but I think that’s understandable. I also think he knows that he is popular and and so must be doing something right because you don’t (generally) get this far if you can’t act, but he is still very humble and appreciates every bit of praise he gets. That’s the feeling I get from him, but I don’t know him so I couldn’t tell you for sure.
I really don’t think Benedict Cumberbatch is going to publish his actual address. Any normal person would be uncomfortable having the world know where they live let alone a celebrity.
None that we know of. He isn’t doing any theatre or recordings at the minute that I know of so it would have to be at interviews/press releases. http://www.benedictcumberbatch.co.uk/ is good for dates.
