English actor Benedict Cumberbatch is handsome and talented. Many people joke about how his name is almost stereotypically British — though his full name is “Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch CBE”, so you can’t really blame them.
Cumberbatch got his start in the theater. He even won an Olivier Award for his 2005 performance in Hedda Gabler, which was also his first appearance in London’s famed West End.
He’s found many successes not just in the the theatre, but for his television work — including the title role in the BBC’s Sherlock. He even played Stephen Hawking in a BBC television biopic about the physicist’s years at university.
And, of course — it’d be strange if an actor of his stature hadn’t made the leap to film, and Benedict Cumberbatch is not strange (though he is Doctor Strange!). He’s appeared in Star Trek Into Darkness and August: Osage County.
Whether you’re a fan of his work in Sherlock or as Smaug in The Hobbit, here’s all of our coverage on him.
