Benedict Cumberbatch To Cameo In EastEnders?
How bloomin’ amazing would that have been?
And it wasn’t even as far-fetched as it sounded with the Oscar-nominated actor previously expressing an interest in appearing in the show and having ties to the BBC due to his work with Sherlock.
Unfortunately Dominic ended up deciding that a cameo from a Hollywood A-lister would be way too flashy, telling Radio Times: “I thought about the idea of some stunt casting.
"Ben Cumberbatch has said that he seriously wanted to do ‘EastEnders’ if he had the time. So I toyed with him for a while.
"But it would have been too unreal and flashy. I’ve got to think about the show going on.”
A wise choice we reckon; as much as we’d love to see Benedict in Albert Square he’d definitely look a bit out of place next to the likes of Phil Mitchell and Shirley Carter.
Dominic has been widely-praised for his work on EastEnders following his departure, with the 38-year-old being the one who brought in the much-loved Carter family, lead by the incredible Danny Dyer.
