Benedict Cumberbatch’s marriage to his pregnant fiance on Valentine’s Day was justified by his publicist as he was declared a newly married man after his exchange of vows with his now wife.
Sophie Hunter is 36 and a successful theater director. The Londoner also released a music album with Guy Chambers in 2004 film Vanity Fair against Reese Witherspoon. Sophie was born from a prominent family line– her grandfather is the late General Sir James Michael Gow GCB, Knight Grand Cross, and Order of the Bath.
Summing up Sophie’s career will reveal that she and Benedict are advantageously positioned to understand the work pressures that both are fated to face in their roles.
Her exposure to the showbiz world will also help when it comes to approaching Benedict’s massive counts of fans that may result in conflicts.
As an extremely talented actor and being a huge idol of Hollywood, he has a group of ardent female devotees called the ‘Cumberbitches’.
These group of females even have their own ironic Tumblr site called ‘Cumberbitch Problems’ where they enumerate a number of problems that come with being a Benedict Cumberbatch fan.
Despite all these potential problems, the Sherlock star and Sophie had decided to tie the knot. They made their vows at the Medieval St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church in Mottistone on the Isle of Wight, which is off the coast of England, where invited family members gathered along with well-known friends such as Tom Hiddleston and Martin Freeman.
“It was a magical day” said the actor’s spokesman to BBC.
Cumberbatch, the 38 year old Imitation Game star, and Sophie, the theater director, announced their engagement on November 14. This was actually five years after they met. They even worked together in Burlesque Fairytales in 2009, a thriller set one night. They announced they were expecting their first child in January. Although, Cumberbatch does not have much time to spend celebrating his weekend nuptials since he will be required at the Academy Awards on February 22 as he will be fighting for a Best Actor Oscar.
Cumberbatch won’t have too long to celebrate his weekend nuptials – he’s expected at the Academy Awards on 22 February (15), when he will compete for a Best Actor Oscar.
