Benedict Cumberbatch Flattered By Praise From His Co-Stars


Only a few weeks in and we’re already getting massive amounts of news pertaining to the highly anticipated sequel.

Star Trek

One of the main reasons being is Benedict Cumberbatch, who is recently recognized as BBC’s Sherlock, being the center of the set photos as well as the set video that shows him squaring off with Zachary Quinto‘s Spock. Complimented and praised by his co-stars, he was quoted saying:

“Well, it’s very sweet to say,” Cumberbatch said of the comments by Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana, in which they praised him for compelling them to bring their A-games to the sequel. “I actually did a year at drama school, so I’m not that trained; I’m not that classical, but I’m flattered. I think they are brilliant on that show, and it’s a real privilege to be on that set. There’s a patter and a kind of knowledge of who they’re playing and the other main characters, which I’m learning a lot from. It’s just good fun. It’s great to work with Chris. He’s very professional. So is Zach (Quinto), who I’ve been working a lot with; I adore him, he’s a brilliant, brilliant guy.

A great of an actor he is, I seriously would not have thought he went to drama school for a year! Along with filming Star trek, he’s also slated to appear in The Hobbit in which adds on:

“I’m kinda getting busy with the film now. I’ve been away doing other things — The Hobbit, which was fantastic. And so my part of the film is really sorta kicking in now. It’s great fun, great, great fun. But what I’m trying to say is it’s a great thing to come into something that everybody’s familiar with and knows each other very well. So it’s (in) a weird way a very easy thing to get up to speed with, because everybody is so welcoming and gets along with one another.”

I am definitely excited for this film being the Trekkie that I am. The untitled Star Trek sequel directed by J.J. Abrams is currently being filmed and has a release date of May 17, 2013.
