Did you miss Benedict Cumberbatch entertaining babies on the streets of NYC?

Cumberbatch and baby girl

Just when you thought Benedict Cumberbatch couldn’t get any dreamier (he’s pretty dreamy, right?). Secret snappers caught the Sherlock star being super cute with some baby fans as he filmed scenes for the new Marvel movie Dr Strange on the streets of Manhattan.

Clearly one of the nicer actors in Hollywood, Cumberbatch made plenty of time for fans this weekend – despite getting soaked in the rain and struggling to keep warm. Making many a geek’s wildest fantasies come true, the British star even visited an NYC comic book store in costume and posed for pics with fans.


Joined by fellow Dr Strange stars Chiwetel Ejiofor – who plays Baron Mordo – and Mads Mikkelsen – who plays an as yet unnamed villain – Cumberbatch gave it 100% and he leapt and rolled around in the middle of the street in the Flatiron District.
