The actor stars on Time’s annual list alongside the likes of Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus. Wonder what Sherlock would have to say about this?
Fellow Brit actor Colin Firth has penned a few words about the ‘Sherlock’ for the magazine, writing: “It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy.”
While Benedict is best known for his TV detective role, the actor has made his big screen breakthrough, too, including the Oscar-winning ‘12 Years A Slave’ and ‘The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug’.
He’s also appeared on the West End stage and is set to tread the boards again at London’s Barbican as Hamlet in 2015.
