In between reading more than I ever expected to know about World War I in Picardy, I’ve been typing up tomorrow’s Teaser Tuesday post about the hero of The Other Daughter, Simon Montfort.
But then I hit a snag.
Simon Montfort was– shall we say?– visually inspired by Benedict Cumberbatch. I don’t usually base characters’ appearance on actors, but there it is. The moment Simon stepped onto the page, there was no mistaking the resemblance.
I wanted a visual for the post. But there are many, many pictures of Benedict Cumberbatch in the world. And I would never go back to reading about 1914 Picardy if I tried to go through them all.
Which is where you come in.
Do you have a favorite Cumberbatch picture? Or one that you think looks particularly appropriate for a 1927 hero?
Post the link in the Comments section below! I’ll choose the best ones to use in my post tomorrow– and one winner will be chosen at random to receive an Other Daughter mug!
If you need inspiration, you can read Rachel’s first meeting with Simon here. You can also find some Rachel and Simon snippets in last week’s post about Rachel, here.
Otters! Like a stoat but cuter.
Pam, that is so deeply brilliant, I just can’t even.
Lady Florence Oblong can’t begin to compete.
This is a particular favorite of mine. http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2014/news/141208/benedict-cumberbatch-7-768.jpg
Here’s my 1927 Simon portrayed by Benedict.
And, here’s an evening dress from 1925 that I wore (in my imagination) when I had my imaginary date with him.
Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, Lauren. I’m excited to read this book. I’m SUCH A FAN!!!
I loved his performance as The Creature in Frankenstien. This is from the birth scene.
That one is my favorite. I just adore him as Sherlock!
Looking forward to reading it!
Don’t think I did it correctly the first time…sorry!
Combines my two loves: Benedict and soccer
This is my favorite because it’s the day I got to see him in person when I visited London. They just happened to be filming season 3 of Sherlock! Can’t wait to read your book Lauren!!
Okay, so this one isn’t really 1927- inspired, but I love it! http://benedictdaily.tumblr.com/post/116766841022/benedict-cumberbatch-photographed-by-tomo-brejc
One of my favorite Miss Marple episodes co-stared Cumberbatch!!!!
I hope the link works…great photo and I know he loves this suit! Lovely.
How about a casual hero with a killer smile?
More period-appropriate and sweet with the child.
This is my favorite:
It’s a batch of ‘batch! Tried to post a link but failed. Enjoying the photos!
Benedict Cumberbatch in Parade’s End
and this one works quite nicely too (also Parade’s End).
I like the Sherlock pics!
Oh, gosh. I second Joy’s photo in Comment #3. But they’ve all been such fun to look at! 😀
I’ve now overdosed on BC…and I don’t even get that excited about his looks. Good actor, though.
