TIME The 100 most influential people - Benedict Cumberbatch By Colin Firth
The alarmingly talented English starWhen I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors. The encounters were brief, but I’ve remembered them both with great admiration. Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. Along with very considerable talent, they had elegance, glamor, wit, kindness and decency.
I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes. And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.
His parents’ qualities are on rampant display. 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. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.
He must be stopped.

when I get depressed, I found something… I travel. So to lessen the stress and the waistline, I decided on a Bavarian spa. Why Bavaria, you ask? I’ve always wanted to visit Ludwig’s castles. Because he’s Sissi’s cousin. We are what we are. Also because, if I’m becoming a homosexual, better to shoot for the top. Anyway… I’m going to love it.
"Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgive one another, as God in Christ forgave you."
I look at my mother and I understand everything. I understand that she's the one who's afraid.
