Louise Brealey says young Sherlock fans have changed her life

The Sherlock actress thanks Twitter for helping her connect with viewers


Actress Louise Brealey had some nice things to say to Twitter yesterday as it celebrated its tenth birthday. As well as being pleased about all the dog pictures the social media site has bought her over the years (we’re all thankful for those) she also said it’s been life changing to connect with young fans of Sherlock.


Brealey, who plays Molly Hooper in the BBC adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work, is often to be found interacting with viewers of the show on the social platform. After the New Year’s Day special she posted a message to thank fans for their outpouring of love for her new-look character, as Hooper donned a disguise for the Victorian-themed episode.

“You make being a part of Sherlock amazing,” the actress told fans.


As for Twitter itself, we helped mark its anniversary with 10 of the biggest tweets sent in its first 10 years.
