Between having three movies coming out before the end of the year, preproduction for the next season of the BBC’s “Sherlock” (yay!) and brushing up on his Bard to play Hamlet in London, Benedict Cumberbatch somehow found the time this summer to let the sculptors at Madame Tussauds poke, measure and draw on him to create his own wax likeness.
“The main privilege for me was the process and seeing the amount of exacting work and skill brought to every detail of this art form. It is a wonderful combination of old and new, hi-tech and lo-fi skills,” Cumberbatch said when the project was announced in July.
The figure went on display at the museum’s London branch on Monday.
