“I know it’s such a well-trodden, clichéd path, ‘Brit actor plays baddie in Hollywood’, but I channelled all of that and just really enjoyed it.”
- Benedict Cumberbatch on his role in star trek
and now I’m thinking of Eddie Izzard’s bit on the British baddies on the death star in Star Wars.
British actors opening doors and going:
"Oh, I’m - oh, oh…"
"What is it, Centurion Sebastian?"
"It’s just Star Fleet, Commander. They’re here."
"Vadt! Do they want tea?"
"No, I think they’re after something more than that, Commander. I don’t know what it is, but they’ve brought a flag."
