Naomie Harris and Benedict Cumberbatch in National Theatre’s Frankenstein.
Benedict: I think it was probably Atonement that swung it for me, for [Steven Speilberg]; and then he saw Sherlock and fell a little bit in love with that and what I do in it.
Tom: As did everybody.
Benedict: Oh, bless you.
Interviewer: [Tom], are you Errol Flynn reincarnated?
Tom: Uh, I can’t possibly comment.
Benedict: I can. He is Errol Flynn reincarnated. He’s an action man, he’s got the looks, he’s an incredibly talented actor, and he’s one of the finest of our generation, and a friend that I’m very proud to know.
Tom: Darling! Thank you.
