British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has taken the plunge with his first ever skydive.
The Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star channelled his inner daredevil as he jumped out of a plane at an elevation of 15,000 feet (4,572 metres) in Glenorchy in New Zealand, where he has been shooting The Hobbit.
And Cumberbatch admits the thrill-seeking experience left him wanting more.
He says, "It was the most exquisite sensation and when I landed on the ground I wanted to do it again. I felt incredibly horny as well, because it's such an extreme thing. You think, 'God, I've just had the most massive bite out of life and I'm really hungry for more!'"
