Benedict Cumberbatch on Sherlock series 3, Irene Adler, Star Trek Into Darkness, Elementary & more…
Den of Geek did an amazing article (x) where Benedict actually delves into acting decisions in Sherlock S02, and character meta analysis. It’s a great read.
A tiny sliver of the iceburg follows - The excerpts really don’t do it justice.
On the relationship between Mycroft and Sherlock:
But at the same time there’s a joyous fount of characterisation to explore there and yeah, definitely there’ll be some stuff revealed. You’ll find out more about their relationship definitely, as brothers. Somebody said something which I really liked, they said it to Mark and it was intriguing, he said ‘Does Sherlock worry about Mycroft?’ which I think is a wonderful idea, because they are very… they play cold with each other to maintain superiority but well, you’ll see.
Is that a clue for The Last Vow, I wonder?
On Irene Adler
There’s a drawer in Baker Street, with her phone in it, the Vertu phone, it’s there isn’t it? I mean, he has a token, he’s kept something of hers. But if you look at the way I play that after the moment of fond reminiscing of one night in Islamabad or whatever may or may not have happened after I rescued her from death, I stop smiling and put it away and it’s in a drawer, it’s gone from my immediate environment, it’s something that’s compartmentalised.
More detailed goodness in the article (x)!!
