Ryan Seacrest asked the “Sherlock” star the fan-submitted question about how Cumberbatch would describe differences between fans in the United States and in his native Britain. Almost immediately, Cumberbatch had an answer: “They’re very noisy,” he said. “That’s what Americans are like.”
In case this point needed proof, Cumberbatch turned immediately to the fans in the red-carpet bleachers and waved. They responded by yelling and waving back. It was notably noisy all the way back on the carpet.
Safe to say Cumberbatch knows his audience at this point.
