‘When I first met (Cumberbatch), it was shocking how much he looked like Assange,’ Bruhl says. 'But then the first thing he said to me, he told me what I’d had for breakfast, that I was left-handed and recommended that I iron my shirt better.

'I said, ‘Well, hi Sherlock. I’m going to be your Watson for the next two or three months.’

'This was before he even said hi,’ Bruhl says, adding that Cumberbatch immediately apologized. 'He said, I can’t help it.’
