Benedict Cumberbatch visits the zoo for inspiration

July 8, 2012 at 9:10 pm by linuxelf  - 

In an recent interview with InStyle magazine, Benedict Cumberbatch said he visited the London Zoo to study the reptiles in preparation for his role as Smaug the dragon.

“It’s an extrapolation of a performance into something other than an actor. But essentially, you’re still doing a scene.”

Cumberbatch who also stars in the up-coming Star Trek 2 and plays Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock says that his acting parents helped him learn the importance of professionalism.

In other Cumberbatch news, apparently he’s also landed a small guest spot on the Simpsons. Its been recorded, but no word yet on when it might air, or what the part involved.

    SWEET. Just from that statement this guy knows what he’s doing. Smaug and The Necromancer is in very good hands.

    There’s a really nice story about when Benedict visited London Zoo, he went with a 17 year old girl who has Cystic Fibrosis. You can read the story here
