OK, here's that story on Cumberbatch getting carjacked while filming in South Africa.  He's pretty honest about a very wrenching situation.

And I've been spending waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time at this site being a fangirl and gawking at pictures of the man.  :-* :-*

Thanks for posting these links. What fun! I'm looking forward to following what I hope will be a long career for him. I'm so glad he is so generous in sharing his experiences!!

And his name!  Whether it's German Cumberbach as Jeff pointed out or Welsh.  :laugh:

Thanks so much for posting!  Very interesting.  Goodness, I wish I was in London so I could try to buy scalped tickets to 'Frankenstein'.

Oh, geeze, yes, his name...."small valley dweller or whatever"  ;D

Same here re London. Are you near any of the theaters where they're showing the broadcast of 'Frankenstein'?  I'm counting the days. Seeing it live would be wonderful, but I'll settle for the big screen.

I watched The Seven Percent Solution tonight. It was quite awful, even though I like Alan Arkin (who plays Sigmund Freud) and Vanessa Redgrave. Almost everybody in the movie had a terrible faux British or German accent.
