6. William ford
12 years a slave (2013)
The Oscar level performance in an Oscar winning movie. Benedict Cumberbatch played the role William Ford in 12 years a slave. His role in the movie is central and has added an extra edge. The movie in itself, is one of the best of its kinds, starring some of most popular stars such as Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael Fessbender etc.
5. Stephen Hawking
Benedict Cumberbatch played one of the greatest scientists of modern world in the 2004 flick named Hawking. A really stunning and mesmerising piece of acting by the British star in this movie shows not only his versatility, but also establishes him as one of the most popular and celebrated actors of the time. In an interview, he told that it was hard playing Stephen Hawking but he worked hard for the role and everything else got better.
4. Khan Noonien Singh
Star Trek into Darkness (2013)
Khan Noonien Singh was a very strong character played by Benedict. This role is quite impressive because in this role alone, Benedict Cumberbatch can be identified within two to three ranges of acting. Such powerful and rocking role by him got this character one of the most popular of Benedict Cumberbatch.
3. Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange (2016)
This is also a very strong and intense role by Benedict Cumberbatch. Though, we can expect much intense nature or Benedict’s roles, this is different and contains a lot more. I do not want to reveal much. How about you go watch it yourself?
2. Alan Turing
The Imitation game (2014)
Oh my gosh!! What to say about this movie and the Alan Turing role played by him… Can not tell you why, but this is my most favourite role that have ever played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Such a beauty, I would say. Alan Turing, if you do not know, was a computer scientist, Mathematician, Philosopher and what not? His sexual orientation, at that time, became somehow the reason of his loneliness and eventually death. Such a role was very hard to be played by anybody, but i must say, Benedict Cumberbatch did justice with the role. It became a very popular and appreciated role of Benedict.
1. Sherlock Holmes
This is arguably the greatest and most popular role by him. This is something immensely popular, and for good number of reasons. The character of Sherlock made Benedict one of the most prominent figures in series and digital content world. With 9.2 of rating, it is one of the highest rated shows on IMDb. A lot of people who are into consuming the digital content must have watched this show, but in case you are living under a rock, what the hell are you waiting for? After all this is the most popular and epic role of Benedict Cumberbatch!
