He began acting in Shakespearean theater productions before making his West End debut in Richard Eyre’s revival of Hedda Gabler in 2005.

In 2015, he played the title role in Hamlet at the Barbican Theatre.

Cumberbatch’s television work includes his performance as Stephen Hawking in the television film Hawking (2004). He gained greater recognition for playing Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series Sherlock from 2010 to 2017, for which he won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie.

He received critical acclaim and nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performances as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game (2014) and as a volatile rancher in The Power of the Dog (2021).

While in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, in 2005, Cumberbatch and two friends were abducted, after bursting a tire, and held at gunpoint by a group of locals. Eventually their abductors drove them into unsettled territory and set them free without explanation. Cumberbatch said of the incident: “It taught me that you come into this world as you leave it, on your own. It’s made me want to live a life less ordinary.” Before the burst tire, they had been listening to “How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead. Following this experience, whenever Cumberbatch hears the song it “reminds [him] of a sense of reality … [and] a reason for hope”.

He subscribes to Buddhist philosophy and has expressed affinity for meditation and mindfulness. Cumberbatch also follows a vegan diet.
