Happy Birthday, Vasily Livanov and Benedict Cumberbatch


Happy Birthday Vasily Livanov and Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock Holmes actors in Russian adaptation and British BBC series 19 July 2013

Vasily Livanov and Benedict Cumberbatch are my favorite actors to portray Sherlock Holmes. Both were born on this day in 1935 and 1976 respectively.

In my humble opinion, Vasily gave the best performance as the Canonical version of Holmes and Benedict is proving himself as the definitive modern version of the quintessential Victorian character.

Many Many Happy Returns of the Day to both of you! Wishing you the best of health and success in the coming years.

  2. I suppose the secret to being a great Sherlock is to be born on the 19th of July.
