‘Doctor Strange’ Star Benedict Cumberbatch’s Spirit Animal Is Otter As He Hilariously Imitates It [Watch]

“Doctor Strange” actor Benedict Cumberbatch showcased his more adorable side as he poses for the challenge in a talk show. When a cool actor who is known for the portrayal of serious characters in movie like “Sherlock Holmes” revealed his other side, fans can’t help it but love him even more.

According to The Mary Sue, fans have suggested that Cumberbatch looks like an otter as they even edited photo comparisons of him and the cute furry animal with the same pose and facial expressions. Through the Graham Norton TV program, he gave them more reasons to believe he definitely resembles it. The guests of that episode also include Johnny Depp as they are promoting their latest film entitled “Black Mass.”



The talk show host opened this segment by explaining that a great popularity always come with solid fandom and sometimes, members of these fandom have weird ideas. It appears like Cumberbatch isn’t aware that fans are claiming he looks like an otter because of his clueless and grinning reaction. Norton even shared three of these photo comparisons. What comes next is, he asked the actor if they could give more of these pictures for the fans by imitating the otters in the images they retrieved.

The “Doctor Strange” actor was up for the challenge and did his best to mimic the otter. Spectators in show continue to burst out in laughter for his every pose, especially when he candidly stuck out his tongue. In the last picture, it became a group picture as Norton and Depp posed with him.

Inquisitr reported that the actor is indirectly encouraging fans who see him as an otter to watch their film. He said, “People [who] like the viral pictures of me and an otter will go and see a film about a violent gangster. Yay!”

Indeed, Benedict Cumberbatch gave a new definition now to the word cuteness.
