English actor Benedict Cumberbatch said that at one time he was the victim of a kidnapping. The incident took place in South Africa in 2004. He shared the details of the incident on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.
Cumberbatch said that 17 years ago he starred in the mini-series “At the End of the Earth”, and in their free time they decided to go scuba diving with colleagues.
They were returning in the dark, and their car had a flat tire. They had to stop and get out of the car. At that moment they were attacked by robbers armed with pistols.
According to the actor, the criminals stuck him in the trunk, and at some point his laces were tied to his wrists. The bandits released them only after the victims gave them their wallets with money and bank cards.
True, before that they were held for 2.5 hours, since the attackers took time to get to the nearest ATMs.
Earlier it became known that Cumberbatch will play in the TV series “Londongrad” , in which he got the role of the Russian opposition leader Alexander Litvinenko.
