TIME The 100 most influential people - Benedict Cumberbatch By Colin Firth
The alarmingly talented English starWhen I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors. The encounters were brief, but I’ve remembered them both with great admiration. Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. Along with very considerable talent, they had elegance, glamor, wit, kindness and decency.
I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes. And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.
His parents’ qualities are on rampant display. It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.
He must be stopped.

I’ve noticed lately that a lot of people have been grabbing my edits and using them as a basis for their own edits or simply reuploading them into a photoset with some other pics. I kindly ask you to STOP DOING THIS.
I’m tired of seeing my edits reuploaded with a simple black and white filter over it. If for you do feel the need to edit one of my pics ask me for permission first and if you can’t be arsed to do that leave my
fuckingwatermark on it for fucks sake.
End of PSA *BEEP*
Yep, fucking tired of it. I’m even tired of reasoning with anyone on this matter, but please, if anyone has a moment, read the TUMBLR ETIQUETTE! http://mishasminions.tumblr.com/post/25165190110
@jayrayner1: I wonder if @guardian editorial conference tomorrow will be better attended than usual. Some bloke called Benedict Cumberbatch will be there

Should actor Benedict Cumberbatch be included on the #TIME100?
Reminder. Official list won’t be chosen by voting, but it would be nice if he won the poll anyway, just to show the haters what we can do as a fandom :)
