“I’ve been on muddy fields and on horseback playing Richard III for the BBC and I’ve been on more flights to Los Angeles and back than I can count,” Cumberbatch told the Daily Mail. “All of that has been special, but I’m ready to have a couple of months to ourselves to prepare for the baby and do some nesting. It’s a real-life role, not a part.”
