EYEWTK. as in Everything You Ever Wanted To Know. Time for yet another infographic that will give you endless witty banter at your next get together when Benedict Cumberbatch, any of his countless movies that are set to premiere or the obligatory, ‘when is Sherlock set to premiere’ question arises.
The fact that he taught English in a Tibetan Monestary during his gap year will probably win you something if you phrase it right. Couple that bit of trivia with the knowledge that his first acting role, at the age of 13, was that of Titania: Queen of the Fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream has to be worth a free pint or two, don’t you think?
Given that since 2011, Benedict Cumberbatch has been a part of War Horse, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Parade’s End, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, 12 Years a Slave, The Fifth Estate, August: Osage County, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, it’s no wonder there have been 825,624 (and counting) Twitter mentions of Benedict in the last 12 months. One can only imagine what will happen when Sherlock hits the telly in 2014.
