Being born to prominent actors Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton, it is no wonder that Cumberbatch has managed to become a successful actor himself. He attended Brambletye School in West Sussex before enrolling at one of the oldest and most respected UK boarding schools – Harrow School. Prior to continuing his education, he spent a year volunteering as an English teacher in India at a Tibetan monastery. He later enrolled at the University of Manchester, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama before attending the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts from which he obtained Master of Arts degree in Classical Acting.

His professional acting career Cumberbatch began in 2000, as a member of Royal National Theatre as well as Royal Court and Regent’s Par Open Air, where he appeared in over a dozen classic stageplays, in a variety of roles. However, his on camera debut occurred later in 2000 when he was cast for a supporting role in an episode of “Heartbeat” TV series. These engagements helped Benedict to establish himself as a young and prominent actor, and also provided the basis for his net worth.

Throughout the 2000s, he refined his acting skills by appearing in numerous TV series as well as movies, including starring in major roles in biographical movies “Hawking” (2004) and “Painted with Words” (2010), as well as in TV series “To the Ends of the Earth” and “The Last Enemy” among plenty of others. However, Cumberbatch’s acting career was really set on a rising path in 2010 when he was cast in the title role of world’s famous detective Sherlock Holmes in BBC TV’s crime drama series “Sherlock”, subsequently  receiving four Primetime Emmy Award nominations, as well as nominations for three BAFTA and one Golden Globe Award. It is certain that all these accomplishments helped Benedict Cumberbatch to add a significant sum to the total of his net worth.

Benedict has continued to add plenty of major acting appearances to his professional portfolio, portraying various characters, often appearing as upper-class figures or highly intelligent characters. Some of his most popular appearances include roles in, apart from all those already mentioned above, Oscar-nominated movies “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” (2011), “12 Years a Slave” and “August: Osage County” both in 2013 as well as voice acting as the notorious dragon Smaug in Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy “The Hobbit”. In addition, he also appeared in “Black Mass” (2015), and 2017 blockbusters “Thor: Ragnarok” and “The Current War” in which he portrays Thomas Edison. Doubtlessly, all these achievements have helped Benedict Cumberbatch to increase the total of his net worth by a large margin.

In his acting career, Cumberbatch has appeared in over 70 projects so far, and for his contribution to the performing arts, he was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2015.

When it comes to his personal life, Cumberbatch has been married since February 2015 to colleague actress Sophie Hunter with whom he has welcomed two sons. In his spare time, besides enjoying scuba diving, snowboarding and skydiving, he is avidly involved within several charities, such as The Prince’s Trust, Motor Neurone Disease Association, and Stop the War Coalition among several others.
