Well I have met him once, albeit really really briefly, for about two minutes or so. It was during an event he hosted in Kuala Lumpur. I've been a big big fan of his. I'd like to send some fanmail to Benedict Cumberbatch. Someone I love is terminally ill and all they want is to meet Benedict/speak to him on the phone for a . The late Spike Milligan once remarked that he had arranged to meet a In his role as Hamlet, Benedict Cumberbatch will have to learn, and.
Up until this point, I had been running on pure adrenaline. But as I stood in line, the nerves began kicking in.

I had bought 3 extra photos on top of the one that came with my diamond pass, but I had never done anything like that before, so I had no idea what I was doing or how to ask for poses without feeling super weird. When my turn came, I went up, said hello, and then let him know about the 4 photos.
I asked if he was doing hugs that day, and after thinking about it for a second, he said no totally understandable, with the amount of people he was seeing that dayso we just did a normal shot first. Then I asked if we could do silly faces, which we did.
I never could have thought of a better one if I tried — I was so happy! Little did I know about the face he pulled…he left that as a parting surprise for me… I started laughing the second they handed me the photo and continue to giggle each and every time I glance at it.
I later noticed that the picture went viral — over reactions on Facebook and on Twitter! When I left the photo area, I could have easily left right then and there feeling completely satisfied. I still had an autograph session to attend, as well as his talk … not to mention all the others I was to meet in my short amount of time there!

He was charming, extremely funny, sweet, and incredibly thoughtful. Finally for Saturday was my autograph session — which was by far the most nerve wracking part for me.
To understand this, we need to go back to Sherlocked for a moment. When I decided to go to that convention back in January, I figured there might be a chance that Benedict would attend, and if he did, I wanted to find a way to show my affection and gratitude in a tangible and meaningful way.
30 Hours in London to see Benedict Cumberbatch
So, I decided to pick Save the Children for the year as my gift to Benedict, because I remembered hearing about his impassioned speeches after Hamlet and knew how much he cared about their work. So, I was feeling pretty nervous while I stood there waiting in line — and mind you, I was also running on about 3 hours of sleep and no food since the previous evening by this point! When my turn finally came, I greeted him happily, and then as he began signing, I asked my million dollar question.
The respect the man has for his fans is so obvious, it can almost be a little overwhelming at times. At this point, I presented him with the replica note, hoping to make him realize that it really and truly was OK — and he accepted it immediately, telling me that on second look, upon seeing it, he did seem to think that maybe he had seen it, but that he would make a point of reading it again just to be completely sure this time.
In chatting about it, I gave him a brief summary of what it was, and he thanked me graciously for it. Finally, as it must have been top of mind for him since I had mentioned Sherlocked early on, he asked if I had come all the way from LA for this, and I told him no, but that I was actually from DC…and then his minders interrupted him, and I was off!
Today, I got the chance to see Benedict one last time before I left — his duo photo with Mads. When my turn came, I said good morning to them both, and then Benedict asked me how I was doing. And that was that!
However, he greatly appreciates all the kind words and support that he receives and he values his fans very much. How do I know that if I send something to Benedict it will get to him?
