Sherlock cast reveal which character they’re most like in real life

Martin Freeman's answer may surprise you


Members of the Sherlock cast and crew were asked which character they think they’re most like in real life.


Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty sure he’s more of a Molly Hooper than a Mr Holmes. Amanda Abbington, rather teasingly, says her head says John but her heart says Moriarty. Rupert Graves jokes he looks like Lestrade but is more of a Mrs Hudson, while the lady herself says she’s more than happy as the housekeeper landlady.

But it’s Martin Freeman’s answer that may well surprise you. He details why he’s not all that keen on John Watson’s line of work, before dancing between Lestrade and Mrs Hudson because… he likes making people tea.


Lovely. Mine’s milk and no sugar Martin.
