Actor Benedict Cumberbatch says he hopes he’s not overexposed himself with the amount of roles he’s taken on. Yes, he realises that sounds dirty.
“I’d hate to think anyone is sick of the sight of me, although I wouldn’t blame them. It’s just crazy. I’ve overexposed myself! Actually that sounds a bit dirty,” Cumberbatch tells Adelaide’s The Advertiser.
“I’m proud of every single project. I can genuinely say that it is varied enough, as a slate, to not fear too much overexposure. I just hope the public agree because they are seeing a lot of me.”
Cumberbatch is undoubtedly hot property – although perhaps fans of Sherlock would be quick to suggest more of that on our screens wouldn’t go amiss.
On Sherlock, the actor says it’s always lovely to return to the role, especially alongside Martin Freeman as John Watson. Of preparing for each series Cumberbatch says, “Physically I do a little swimming and yoga. It sounds funny, but it helps.”
And on the future of the ever-popular BBC One detective drama he says, “I genuinely don’t know. That’s not me trying to be mysterious. None of us know if there will be a fourth, fifth or sixth series.”
