Benedict Cumberbatch to have his wax figure in Madame Tussauds soon

The Sherlock actor has even met sculptors and technicians for the same

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is the latest celebrity to have his wax statue at the Madame Tussauds museuem here.

He met sculptors and technicians for the measurements and photographs for his figurine, which will be revealed in October.

“Finally, I can photobomb myself,” a portal quoted the Sherlock star as saying.

The 38-year-old joked having famously “photobombed” the red carpet at the Oscars earlier this year. He hijacked other stars’ picture opportunities by sneaking into their shots.

“What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of talent already committed to wax. I’ve been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy,” said Cumberbatch.

His figure will be dressed for the red carpet in a stylish dark suit.

“Our guests made it very clear they wanted to see him in the attraction, and we can’t wait for them to meet his figure later this year,” said Ben Sweet, general manager at Madame Tussauds, London.
