Benedict Cumberbatch 'thrilled' with upcoming movie 'The Fifth Estate'
Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he is "thrilled" with his upcoming film 'The Fifth Estate'.
The 37-year-old actor, who plays the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the film, admitted that though he enjoyed the role, he was “terrified” before he watched the final version of the movie for the first time, Contactmusic reported.
The ‘Sherlock’ star said that he couldn’t watch the film himself, as he was playing someone who is so different from him considering the appearance and accent.
Cumberbatch argued that the film, which was criticized by Assange himself, is both entertaining and intriguing and not about “character assassination”.
