19th July, 1976.
When I started, I just assumed I couldn’t be called Benedict Cumberbatch… but then, one day, I told someone in the business what I was really called and they said, “That’s great, that’s something you can use to stand out.”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BENEDICT.
❝ I’ve seen and swam and climbed and lived and driven and filmed. Should it all end tomorrow, I can definitely say there would be no regrets. I am very lucky, and I know it. I really have lived 5,000 times over. ❞
Happy Birthday Benedict.

Why do you taunt me so? At least do us the kindness of linky goodness! *whimper*
There is this fine fellow named Ben
Who is seen on my blog now and then.
His face is divine
But alas, he’s not mine
I drooled on my keyboard again.
Every job is incredibly different, and I love it because you’re picking up skill sets and experiences. It’s the university of life.
Benedict Cumberbatch looks like he ought to be on the cover of a romance novel. Or the cover of a DVD about some gorgeous, brilliant chap with tons of people enamoured of him and… wait…
The next professor for Muggle Studies, Ladies & Gentlemen. Professor Martin Crieff
YOU BETTER FIC THIS, RANDOM!!!!!
OMG, sweetie, I’ve only written the merest smearing of a Harry Potter glaze over a chewy Beeblock center - how… I could never… it’s… well…
maybe a drabble…?
Dark Side of The Earth:
The Dark Side of the Earth is a potential fantasy/adventure film by writer/director Neil Oseman.Benedict Cumberbatch appeared as the character Maximillian Clarke a paranoid hypochondriac who’s so afraid of germs that he lives inside a sealed suit that filters all the bacteria out of his air and food. Isabelle Vincey, the heroine, finds him surviving in an igloo on the Dark Side of the Earth and he joins her on her quest to start the world turning again. Benedict shot some footage for the film in order to try and raise money from investors to make a full length feature.The footage is not available to buy although it has been part of various packages offered by director Neil Oseman as part of crowd funding initiatives for his new projects.source:
Enough people probably want to see this now that they could do a kickstarter FOR this and it would get funded like crazy. *whines* I wanna seeeeeeee it! :p
I see Cumberbatch tomorrow. So excited.
If anyone is going tomorrow, let me know? Still looking to meet up with someone…
I don’t even know how that happens.

Okay, fellow Cumberfans, can we have a quick chat about the upcoming Hamlet business? I know I’m not alone in my excitement about the possibility of getting tickets to the production in 2015, and I plan to make a genuine effort to do so - as I know so many of you will as well.
If/when any of us are lucky enough to get in a seat at the Barbican next year, can we all agree to be on our best behavior during the performance? YES, Benedict is attractive. YES, there’s a possibility he will be in tights.OBVIOUSLY, his performance will be brilliant, swoon-worthy, etc.
Does that mean there should be uncontrollable cat-calls from the audience whenever he sets foot on stage?
Should collective cries of “Squeeeee!” erupt whenever he does something particularly adorable? NO.
Is it OK for people in the audience take photos and/or secretly film the performance, thinking they are being sneaky but managing to be totally obvious in the process?
Let’s all be respectful of both Ben and the other performers as well as the rest of the audience. Help them put on the best performance they can and have just as amazing of an experience as you’re having. Don’t be “that guy” in the front row causing a distraction. Please?
I would greatly appreciate it if you guys could please reblog this so as many of Benedict’s fans can see. This might be a serious problem, and it’s not fair to the rest of the guests who want to watch the show, regardless of who the actors are. Thank you.
Guys, this is so important. Benedict has wanted to play Hamlet since he was seventeen. Let’s not fuck this up for him with dolphin noises and camera-flashes or throngs blocking sidewalks at all the theater exits.
I want to be able to hear a fucking mouse’s sneeze during Hamlet’s monologues. I want Ben to get home easily after his performances, glowing with standing-ovation satisfaction and blissfully unharassed. I am so serious. Show some respect to one of the greatest works of the Bard, and act like fans Ben can be proud of.
This is all self-evident, isn’t it? Everybody is aware that respect is the key word here. And not only respect for Benedict, but for each and every one who will be on stage in that performance :)
Reblogging again as text because this is SO IMPORTANT! Don’t make him regret doing this. Don’t make him regret waiting to find a location that will cater to his huge number of fans. Don’t make him regret doing live theatre when he could be walled off filming in some podunk town in the middle of the swamp. (Hi there, filming for 12 Years a Slave. Why was Benedict’s plantation way out in the middle of nowhere when everyone else was less than 20 minutes from the city? Just curious.) Anyway. Be RESPECTFUL. Please. Catch more flies with honey and all that. Basic operant conditioning. We don’t want to train avoidance.
The way he sits so straight and his arms OMFGSH HIS ARMS I can’t even….*incomprehensible noises*
Always reblog… No matter how innocent this pose may be it gives me the most depraved mind images every single time… 8D
Because that’s exactly how he’d sit and watch you strip after ordering you to do so.
