Hollywood star Benedict Cumberbatch’s latest role saw him briefly revisit his childhood as he narrated celebrated children’s book The Tiger Who Came To Tea.
Irish Examiner – The British actor lent his voice alongside the book’s writer and illustrator Judith Kerr, 94, in marking 50 years since the book was first published as they read to a group of children and their parents.
Flanked by a full-size tiger, the pair delighted around 150 youngsters on February 13 with narrations of the work and another Kerr book, The Crocodile Under The Bed.
First published in 1968, The Tiger That Came To Tea concerns a young girl, Sophie, her mother, and a hungry tiger who interrupts their afternoon tea.
Cumberbatch said he had vague memories of the book being read to him as a child and now uses it as a bedtime story for his two sons, Christopher and Hal. He told the audience: “It is something that has continued from generation to generation and it’s now a wonderful thing to be passing it on.”
Cumberbatch led a rendition of Happy Birthday to mark the anniversary celebration which took place as part of the Storystock Festival in Battersea, south London.
Yesterday (February 6), Benedict visited the Active Communities Network Programme in south London. The project is funded by the Laureus Sports for Good Foundation, which is the organizer of the Laureus World Sports Awards. Benedict will be hosting the event on February 27 in Monaco. Below you can read the official note about Cumberbatch’s visit to the programme posted on Laurens site:
He has played the role of a doctor, a detective and a genius, and today Hollywood actor and Arsenal supporter Benedict Cumberbatch tried his hand at football as he visited the Laureus-supported Active Communities Network programme in South London.
Ahead of hosting the Laureus Awards in Monaco on February 27, the star of Sherlock, The Imitation Game and Dr Strange spoke with volunteers and participants at the Laureus-supported Active Communities Network programme in South London. The young people from the local community use sport as a pathway to make positive lifestyle choices, learn life skills and progress into education, training and employment programmes.
Having hosted both the 2014 Awards in Kuala Lumpur and the 2015 Awards in Shanghai, Benedict is aware of the work Laureus Sport for Good undertakes around the world, but today’s visit was an opportunity to learn first-hand the ways in which sport helps young people overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage in South London.
The 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards will celebrate sporting success and achievement over the past calendar year, while also recognising the true value sport can have in uniting communities and acting as a positive force for change. For more information and to stay updated in the build up to the Awards, visit awards.laureus.com and follow #Laureus18 on social media platforms.
Benedict Cumberbatch: “Later this month, the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards will celebrate sporting excellence, but we’ll also recognise and celebrate the good which can be achieved through sport at all levels. Laureus Sport for Good supports more than 100 programmes around the world, and having spent time with the young people from the Laureus-supported Active Communities Network programme in London today, I’ve seen the transformational power sport can have in helping young people better themselves in their everyday lives.

Academy Nominee Benedict Cumberbatch is best known for playing the title role in ‘Sherlock’. It is a role that has earned him international acclaim and several awards including an Emmy for best actor.

Other notable films include ‘The Fifth Estate’, ‘Twelve Years A Slave’, ‘Black Mass’, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ and ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’.

More recently he has played the title role of Stephen Strange in Marvel’s ‘Dr Strange’, Stephen in the BBC drama adaptation of the ‘The Child In Time’ and Patrick Melrose in ‘Melrose’ due for release later this year.
Benedict was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2015 for his services to the performing arts and to charity.
During the Showtime’s day at the Winter TCA Press Tour, a panel was held with executive producers and actors from Patrick Melrose. Benedict unfortunately couldn’t be present because he’s still shooting scenes from the Avengers’ untitled movie. However, he was live from Atlanta to discuss his new show with the television critics who were present at the event.
A extended trailer was released, and you can watch below:
During the panel, Benedict explained what drew him to the title role of “Patrick Melrose”
“They are the most extraordinary prose,” Cumberbatch said via satellite. “[Edward St. Aubyn is] one of the most, if not the most, extraordinary modern prose stylists working in the English language.”
“At its heart the subject matter took something–a world I thought I knew and turned it on its head through the perspective of this really unique character who suffers so much and goes on this extraordinary journey,” he continued. “From victim to survivor to champion of his circumstance in a way and via the most richly comic, scalpel-like post-mortem of a class system that is crumbling and the power related to that dissolves as the stories continue.”
The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War is out! The movie, which is set for release on May 4, 2018, sees the heroes fight against Thanos who has come to Earth to recover the Infinity Stones. Check out the trailer below:
Role: Dr. Stephen Strange Year: 2016 Status: To be released on November 2016 Plot: After top neurosurgeon Stephen Strange is injured in a car accident that ruins his career, he sets out on a journey of healing, where he encounters the Ancient One, who becomes Strange's mentor in the mystic arts.
