Benedict Cumberbatch measures up for a Madame Tussauds waxwork figure http://huff.to/Wy8elT
Just days after his thirty eighth birthday and hot on the heels of an Emmy nomination for his role in Sherlock, we can reveal that one of the most exciting and talked about acting talents of his generation, Benedict Cumberbatch, will be honoured with a wax figure here at our world famous attraction later this year.
Benedict’s figure will be ‘premiere ready’, showing the actor looking impeccably groomed in a stylish dark suit. His immaculate red carpet style will be paired with a warm and relaxed expression, and his famous tousled hairstyle.
Work on the figure is well underway, and the actor has been heavily involved with the creation process. Benedict has given two sittings for our talented studios team, during which hundreds of precise measurements and numerous photographs were captured to be used by our sculptors and artists.
“Finally I can photobomb myself!” joked Cumberbatch. “What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax. I’ve been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy!
“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. Measurements, hand inserted individual hairs and sculpted features. As a subject, you stand still surrounded by sculpters, painters, photographers, measurers and a whole army of people who bring together your likeness… it’s an extraordinary experience. Also my agents will be thrilled, they’ve wanted a clone of me for some time!” added Cumberbatch.
Ben Sweet, our General Manager, commented: “There is no denying that Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the most in-demand actors of the moment, starring in some of the most successful films and TV shows in recent times to critical and popular acclaim. With his star on a meteoric rise, we are delighted that his figure will be joining us at Madame Tussauds London. We have been lucky enough to work very closely with Benedict and his styling team to ensure that his figure is as realistic as possible. Our guests made it very clear they wanted to see him in the attraction, and we can’t wait for them to meet his figure later this year.”
Benedict’s figure will be the latest British star to join our A-list line up, and will take up residence in October, alongside fellow Brits Judi Dench and Kate Winslet, as well as a host of Hollywood names from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, to Julia Roberts and Johnny Depp.
