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.
