Martin Freeman - Martin Freeman Blasts Internet Trolls For Sending Death Threats To Partner
Actor Martin Freeman has taken aim at Internet trolls who made death threats to his partner Amanda Abbington after she joined the cast of hit British Tv show Sherlock.
The actress was slammed by some social networking users after it was announced she would be playing Freeman's love interest in the detective drama earlier this year (13).
However, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey star Freeman has now hit back at the trolls who targeted his long-term partner, calling their comments "ridiculous".
He tell Britain's Time Out magazine, "To me, they're not fans of the show, they're fans of a show going on in their heads. Obviously I love Amanda and I want everyone to react positively to her; she plays a fantastic character and brings a hell of a lot to the third series."
