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!
