Cumberbatch Talks Trek at BAFTAs

While on the red carpet at the BAFTAs, Benedict Cumberbatch talked about Star Trek (and Sherlock) with the BBC. He didn’t give any spoilers, but had this to say about the JJ Abrams sequel.

[Star Trek was] amazing. One of the best four months of my life. It was just solid extraordinary fun from beginning to end. JJ Abrams is a god. And the rest of the cast and what we were asked to do in the film is blindingly brilliant. I adore them all. It was a huge roller-coaster adventure and I can’t wait for the world to see the film. I can’t tell you anything about it, even what part I am playing

And regarding the speculation, reports and rumors about him playing Khan in the sequel, he said…

There is all sorts of speculation about all sorts of characters. It would be kind of spoiling it for everyone if I clarified anything. So I am going to leave it with a smile

Cumberbatch was a nominee at the BAFTAs, for Leading Actor in Sherlock. Unfortunately he lost out to Dominic West for ITV’s Appropriate Adult. Cumberbatch did make it to the stage to present a special award to Sherlock creator Steven Moffat. He was joined by Doctor Who himself, Matt Smith.  

And here are some photos from the red carpet:
