Benedict Cumberbatch (right) finds his fans’ love “overwhelming and utterly humbling”. The 40-year-old English actor was stunned to find a huge queue of people waiting overnight for his Doctor Strange panel at the recently-concluded San Diego Comic-Con. He insisted on getting a chance to spend time with fans because they are the reason he’s in the position he is, reported Female First.
“I saw this huge line of people and asked, ‘Is that for some event?’ They (organisers) said, ‘No, it’s for what you’re doing tomorrow’. I was like, ‘How long have they been there? What? All day? In this heat? Have they got water?’ They said, ‘Some of them have, some of them haven’t?’ ‘Are they going to be on the street tonight? Can I go and talk to them?’ There were furtive looks between the security (they said) ‘We can make that happen if you really want to.’ I said ‘Hell I do.’ I want to meet the people who make this possible because it’s all about their enthusiasm and devotion,” said rbatch.
