Benedict Cumberbatch - Mapping His Early Career

Lynnette Porter has created three performance biographies of Benedict Cumberbatch covering all his stage, TV and film performances of his early career.

The first 'In Transition' covered:

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, War Horse, Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Hobbit trilogy, Twelve Years a Slave, August: Osage County, The Fifth Estate; Hedda Gabler, After the Dance, Frankenstein; Hawking, To the Ends of the Earth, The Last Enemy, Parade's End, and, of course, Sherlock. 

Lynette followed this up with 'Transition Completed' which included:

Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Fifth Estate, 12 Years a Slave, August: Osage County, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The third book 'London and Hollywood' includes:

Hawking, Small Island, To the Ends of the Earth, Parade’s End, and The Hollow Crown; on stage, Hedda Gabler, After the Dance, Frankenstein, and Hamlet; on radio, Cabin Pressure and Neverwhere; and on film, Atonement, War Horse, Star Trek: Into Darkness, and The Imitation Game.

We hope Lynnette will do more as these are a fascinating insight into one of the most talented actors of his generation.
