Benedict Cumberbatch Meets Benedict Cumberwax: ‘Sherlock' Star Comes Face-To-Face With His Waxwork (PICS)

No, you’re eyes aren’t deceiving you. These pictures really do show Benedict Cumberbatch coming face-to-face with another Benedict Cumberbatch.

The ‘Sherlock’ actor is set for a surprise in tonight’s (Friday 24 October) ‘Graham Norton Show’, when the host unveils Benedict Cumberwax.


The newly-created waxwork will be housed at Madame Tussauds, though it was only fair that Benedict gave it the once over first.

While Benedict had seen the waxwork while it was a work in progress, this is his first time seeing the finished piece.

Ahead of the big reveal, Benedict was keen to help the artists and attended two sittings to make sure that the measurements were all perfect.

At present, Benedict is busy promoting his latest film, ‘The Imitation Game’, and sadly, he won’t returning as Sherlock until - at the earliest - late 2015.
