Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Englishman, who began with theatrical roles, but has achieved worldwide fame thanks to the series - Benedict Cumberbatch .|
When you get acquainted with the rich biography of Benedict , you notice that his entire creative and public life combines completely contradictory elements that perfectly suit the image of a modern actor. At the same time, he was never noticed for rowdy, did not become a participant in scandals, and in general is almost an example of real decency.
For Cumberbatch acting is the purpose of life. He has never tried himself in other professions, except for teaching English. Only a year, but in a Tibetan monastery. Educated at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts , he played in the best English theaters since 2001, and at the age of 29 was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award . True, he received it a little later - for his role in Danny Boyle's production of Frankenstein, where alternately with Johnny Lee Miller played either Creature , then his creator Victor . And a year ago Benedict was lucky to embody on the stage the most coveted image for any actor - Hamlet in the performance of the same name.
In parallel with the theater Cumberbatch in the mid-2000s, he began to work frequently on British television. His most rewarding collaboration was with the BBC , which later earned him the role of Sherlock in the modern British adaptation of the classic. At the same time, he hit the big screens, acting first in author films ("The Third Star", "Four Lions"), and then in blockbusters ("12 Years of Slavery", "War Horse", "Star Trek: Retribution", "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"). So he made his way into the cohort of top actors and received a nomination for " Oscar " for Best Actor in the biopic "The Imitation Game."
This is if we take exclusively professional achievements, among which there is still an " Emmy ". For the role of Holmes , of course. And if we focus on his public life, we will see a very charming, funny, simple English guy who is not averse to making fun of himself.
Without hesitation, he describes his appearance as "a cross between the face of an otter and what people think is attractive", along with fans and haters, he laughs at his difficult to pronounce surname, smiles when he hears witty journalists about crowds nicknamed “cumberbitches”, she spoils her colleagues' staged photos, but modestly announces her engagement in the newspaper alongside news and obituaries.
This is what he is all about - the owner of a difficult to pronounce surname, one of the best Sherlocks and the future Doctor Strange, who will certainly surprise the audience with outstanding roles and funny antics more than once.
