I had my reservations before playing Sherlock, says Benedict

‘My reservation was ‘Well, this is a very iconic character, there will be a lot of attention on it,’ Entertainment Weekly quoted Cumberbatch as saying.  ‘This was before I had had any significant success, (but) I knew there would still be a lot of focus on it. And while I had done work, it wasn’t stepping into the populist limelight like playing a character like Holmes. So, I did have a pause for thought,’ he added. Cumberbatch acts alongside his The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug co-star Martin Freeman, who plays Dr. John Watson in the series.
