We just love that there’s a magazine called The Lady.
Benedict Cumberbatch covers the October 11th 2013 issue of The Lady magazine.
Although, given the reaction he tends to get around here, we suppose it should be redubbed The Ladyboner with B Cumb on the cover.
On his sacred space: “I was still at school when I first visited The Garrick Club and my father took me to the library. In my memory it always featured as an enormous room, very grand and impressive. Visiting it now, years later, it appears quite small – which in fact it is. It still retains, though, a particular aura, which I sensed on my first visit.
‘This place is an oasis of quiet: a stone’s throw from Charing Cross Road and the theatre district on one side, and from Covent Garden on the other. It is possible to sit here in silence, surrounded by volumes full of original playbills – Edmund Kean (referred to as ‘Mr’ Kean) in Richard III or Othello. It enables one to touch, as it were, the past of the magic world of theatre.”
You’re hearing that in his voice, aren’t you? Don’t lie.
