Spoilers - 2014 10 20 - Benedict Cumberbatch Cast & Crew Filming At Wells Cathedral
Cathedral was open to the public and crew didn’t mind that people filmed in between takes, fyi (info via @FatManatees)
What does everyone think of Benedict Cumberbatch’s wax figure? #cumberwax #benedictcumberbatch #cumberbatch #cumbercollective #madametussauds #madametussaudslondon
Quick trip to Tussaud’s to see the new waxwork today. Whilst the expression is quite intent, the likeness is incredible.
The expression was chosen by Benedict in conjunction with the artist. John Cormican, who sculpted the work, described how it’s quite a tough process for a sitter. You have to hold the pose and expression for around three hours, lots of measurements. John said Benedict was one of the most kind hearted people he had ever met. Not just in his line of work, but ever. He was very warm and a pleasure to spend that time with. John is himself a Primetime Emmy winning prosthetic artist and so they had something to talk about there. He really couldn’t speak highly enough of Benedict’s time with the Tussaud’s team.
The hands are casts of Benedict’s own.
Oddly, Jeremy Paxman was there filming something on Churchill. He spent a bit of time talking to visitors to the Benedict waxwork. He described meeting Benedict at a party. He was with his children who wanted to meet Benedict so despite not knowing him, Jeremy went and introduced himself and the children. He said Benedict was brilliant with them, and got them talking about their exams and what was happening in their lives. Again, reported as being a lovely chap.
Interesting details. Thanks, lovely!

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Richard III during rehearsals
Steve Rogers’ Logic > Everything
(Also, I always love to think how the other Avengers would have done this scene. Tony would build a contraption to get it. Hawkeye would shoot an rope-arrow through it and tug. Black Widow would scamper up like Mulan. Thor would just fly and Hulk would have just ripped the flag pole up from the earth and used it as a toothpick.)
I always forget who may want to be tagged in the Loki art, and on the other hand I really hope I’m not annoying some by doing the same thing. I am absent-minded and introverted - and Tumblr just eats messages when I respond to them - so kindly let me know if anyone wants on or off the list!
