Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch swaps Baker Street for the battlefield to play King Richard III
The Sherlock star will star as Britain’s most controversial monarch Richard III in The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch swaps Baker Street for the battlefield as he plays doomed hunchback King Richard III in a thrilling new big-budget BBC2 Shakespeare adaptation.
The dashing actor ditches the deerstalker and pipe and replaces it with a golden crown and sword to play Britain’s most controversial monarch in The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses.
Giving up his Marylebone pad for a marshy filed, Cumberbatch filmed dramatic scenes from the Battle of Bosworth, the last significant clash in the 15th century civil war which tore England apart. Shooting took place last week in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.
He has a spring in his stride as he charges across the bloody battlefield with rage etched on his face.
However it all ends badly with the broken, disfigured king forlornly wandering around the blood soaked field pleading: “A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!”
The Game of Thrones-style drama, which is set to be screened on BBC2 in 2016, also stars Dame Judi Dench, Sophie Okonedo, Hugh Bonneville, Keeley Hawes and Philip Glenister.
It reunites posh Cumberbatch, 38, with his Sherlock nemesis Andrew Scott, who played Moriarty.
The Hollow Crown is based on William Shakespeare’s History Plays and is one of the BBC’s flagship dramas.
This series follows on from the 2012 Bafta award winning The Hollow Crown, which starred Ben Wishaw, Jeremy Irons and Tom Hiddleston and was an adaptation of Richard II, Henry IV, Part I and Henry IV Part II (treated as one film in two parts in the series) and Henry V.
The second series includes Henry VI (in two parts) and Richard III.
Last week dashing Cumberbatch graced the red carpet with Keira Knightly for the opening of the BFI London Film Festival.
The pair star in The Imitation Game, a wartime drama about codebreaker and computer pioneer Alan Turing.
Cumberbatch is already being tipped for a string of award nominations. If he is, it certainly won’t be a winter of discontent.
not to mention drinking hot drinks. steamy glasses will be the death of me
Emptying a steamy dishwasher. Pouring out a hot pan of water. Rain. Sand. Random scratches that just appear in your vision.
DONT GET ME STARTED ON SHOWERS
no but imagine the tally marks turning black if their love is requited.
and then imagine the tally marks becoming a scar when the one they love dies.
Imagine someone with no tally marks meeting someone with 50 tally marks
Imagine someone with no tally marks starting to like someone with all tally marks scarred
imagine aromantics with no tally marks laughing at this tally mark bullshit system
imagine someone afraid of being in love suddenly getting a tally mark
imagine someone married with a single nice black tally mark has a new one just appear
imagine someone with a single scarred mark that refuses to love again gets a new mark and it’s black
imagine someone who falls in love too easily having a lot of marks
imagine nurses at old people homes taking care of people with scarred marks, black marks, and no marks
Goddamnit someone write a book
