Benedict Cumberbatch

Originally Benedict Carlton

18 Feb, 2015

Cumberbatch tells reporters the origins of his name:

I started off as Benedict Carlton, which is my middle name, my grandfather’s name. Cumberbatch sounds like a fart in a bath … It is even funnier in an English accent. But an agent who was wiser than me told me it was a good name. People have had fun with it and they continue to!
