‘Sherlock’ star announces engagement to girlfriend in London newspaper
LONDON – A popular British actor announced his engagement on Wednesday in a very old-fashioned way.
A small notice in the London Times announced Benedict Cumberbatch’s engagement to his girlfriend, Sophie Hunter.
Hunter is a 36-year-old Oxford graduate, actress and theater director.
The short announcement read, “Mr. B.T. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter; the engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London.”
Cumberbatch is well-known for his role as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series ‘Sherlock.’
His performance as Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game” is already being discussed as Oscar-worthy.
