Benedict Cumberbatch - Benedict Cumberbatch Backs Prince Charles' Charity's Film Initiative
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch showed his support for budding young moviemakers in Britain earlier this month (Jun12) by hosting a film showcase backed by Charles, Prince Of Wales' charity.
The Sherlock star is an ambassador for The Prince's Trust and he headed to the London branch of waxwork museum Madame Tussauds last week (ends17Jun12) to front the organisation's event.
It featured short films inspired by issues and events affecting young people and Cumberbatch is hopeful the scheme will help boost teenagers' confidence.
He says, "Making films requires passion, determination and team work and these qualities are evident in the films we've seen.
"Many of the young people supported by The Prince's Trust face major challenges in their lives and I hope that the achievement of creating a powerful film has motivated them and made them realise their potential."
