Benedict Cumberbatch: I Have No Vanity About My Characters

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be seen depicting the character of scientist Thomas Edison in his upcoming flick' The Current War'. The actor believes that the light bulb inventor was a genius and he will leave it to the others to debate if he was a robber baron. The film ' The Current War' also stars Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland, Michael Shannon and Nicolas Hoult.

Cumberbatch said, "It's deadly to judge your character if you're portraying someone you have to inhabit with a certain understanding and empathy”, at a Film Festival in Toronto. He further added, “ I leave it to other people to judge characters I play. I find it very hard not to be defensive. I have no vanity about my characters”.

The 'Sherlock' star also expressed sympathy for Edison as he had gone through the same dispute of being a celebrity as the actor as a screen star. The actors find it interesting to check up the characters which are famous. The film is going to be helmed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, which is slated to release on January 19 next year.
