Behind the scenes of Benedict Cumberbatch's Time cover Can't Post


Benedict Cumberbatch photographed by Paola Kudacki for TIME. Benedict Cumberbatch is TIME's cover for their October 28 edition. Go behind the scenes of the shoot with photographer Paola Kudacki and discover the moment that led to the striking image that graces the cover.






In London recently, Paola Kudacki took her young nephews to see Star Trek. Leaving the theater, her 6-year-old nephew remembered Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the role of Khan, saying, "He has such an interesting face." He does, Kudacki agreed. A couple days later she got the call from TIME, asking her to photograph that same interesting face.

"I was very excited because his career has been so big but it's just beginning," Kudacki said. She continued, "I wanted to capture the intensity of his face but also the quietness. I wanted to take a serious approach, very quiet, and intimate."

In the flurry of their work, Kudacki reached over her camera and mussed Cumberbatch's coiffe. She stole one snap before a stylist restored his careful waves.

i saw a clip of his recent graham norton appearance [In reply to] Can't Post

 
so impressed. he appeared to be a wonderfully nice person.

we need more of those, rather than the swaggering braggadocio that many people opt for (both in the celebrity world and real life), which is (in my opinion) often an excuse for selfishness, bullying, and narcissism.

so glad that such abundant success has alighted on the shoulders of such a seemingly nice gentleman.

the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

Speaking of him being on the Graham Norton Show... [In reply to] Can't Post

Here he does an impression of Chewbacca: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuMQYFDAPyc

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
