Benedict Cumberbatch Asks Fans Not to Use Phones During His 'Hamlet' Performance (Video)
Benedict Cumberbatch hurries outside to catch a ride home after leaving the Groucho Club on Friday night (August 7) in London, England.
The 39-year-old actor just began his 12-week run in Hamlet at the Barbican Centre.
After a recent performance, Benedict went outside to ask fans not to use their phones during the show.
“I can’t give you what I want to give you which is a live performance that you’ll remember, hopefully, in your minds and brains whether it’s good, bad or indifferent, rather than on your phones,” he said.
He added, “It may not be any of you here but it’s blindingly obvious…There’s nothing that’s less enjoyable or supportive as an actor on stage experiencing that.”
