Despite all other titles and acclaim, Benedict Cumberbatch is not the most British name to ever come out of Britain. That would be Nigel Whifflepoofhawxe. However, he has accomplished a whole lot during his acting career. His fans (don’t call them “Cumberbitches”) can attest to that.

However, while he certainly displays his talent publicly and often, Cumberbatch tends to keep to himself regarding… well, himself. The guy just wants to keep his private life private (except his privates). It’s not that he’s guarding some terrible secret or anything. Hell, if he couldn’t hold onto a New York accent as Dr. Strange, he certainly couldn’t hold onto anything that dark.

But there is some cool information about him that much of the public doesn’t talk about. You know, small things like teaching English in a monastery, or getting kidnapped. Oh, and technically being a mutant. Here are some more details on those facts and others about Benedict Cumberbatch.
