Benedict Cumberbatch’s handwritten reply to me
BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH WROTE ME BACK.
and I died a little….
Let me preface this post with a bit of an explanation. When previous frans on tumblr were having success with writing and getting a reply from Benedict Cumberbatch I was not given privilege of the address from them. Through means of my own, I was able to locate an address that Ben (could possibly) receive mail. I sent my pictures with a hope and a prayer that it would get to him before moving to his next location.
After two weeks, I had given up all hope even though my package had not been RTS as others on tumblr experienced.
Exactly 4 weeks after sending my package, low and behold, I did receive my package back from Ben. I’ve been debating over and over for a few days on whether to share this news here.
Let me say that I don’t want anyone to think I am posting this to flaunt my success or gloat over the package. I am merely sharing to show (once again) what a beautiful human being this man is.
He didn’t have to write me a lovely letter. He didn’t have to sign two photos that I sent for the bestie AND I. He didn’t have to do anything, but he did. Because he’s Benedict effing Cumberbatch.
Let’s all just take a moment and reflect on what a wonderful person he truly is.
I know, I know. Enough talk right? Pix or it didn’t happen gurl…
I didn’t save a copy of my letter (I don’t know why) but basically I said (paraphrase) Thank you for the wonderful job done in TTSS and Sherlock. It’s been a horrible year for me personally due to various reasons and both sets of work from him were a wonderful distraction.
Does anyone want me to type up what his letter says? It’s a bit difficult to read…
Updated to show what the letter says. His handwriting is cray cray. :D
That was a lovely letter for your first. Thank you. Hope your personal circumstances get better and its a pleasure to hear that I helped to bring some much needed distraction.
It’s the most an actor can hope for and achieve.
All the best and yes, I might be coming to Comic Con. But this is up to my bosses not me!
