‘Holmes is a bit superhuman. He’s the best. It’s a very good name, Sherlock,” Ian said about playing the lead role (via USA Today). “It doesn’t take much to imagine being him. There was no acting problem. So I suppose I was very concerned to get the age right.”

Ian has the body of a 16-year-old. He loves his life. He’s involved politically and artistically in the world. He’s connected,” Laura added. “There’s great circulation in his life. It shows in him physically. You always wonder when someone is playing someone much older, how is that going to come together? In this case, it’s a great actor combined with a great makeup artist. It was a beautiful balance.”
