Benedict Cumberbatch, famed film, television, and theatrical actor, recently appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The show was planned to be about his recent performances in the T.V. show Patrick Melrose and Avengers: Infinity War. However, Ellen was able to get him to open up about a recent encounter in London. Cumberbatch reportedly saved a cyclist from a mugging, putting his life in danger to save the young boy. Here’s what happened.

What Happened in London?

Cumberbatch told Ellen he was riding in an Uber when he noticed a group surrounding a young delivery boy on a bicycle. Realizing what was about to happen, Cumberbatch jumped out of his Uber to dissolve the situation.

Cumberbatch said he acted without thinking, calling it a “foolhardy,” act. He explained, “I just stopped the Uber that we were in and got out and tried to intervene and tried to calm the kids down, who were riled up.” However, the Uber driver, Manuel Dias, saw things a little differently.

Manuel Dias called Benedict a “superhero” rather than careless. He said, “Benedict was courageous, brave and selfless. If he hadn’t stepped in the cyclist could have been seriously injured.”

Fans seem to be impressed. It seems Cumberbatch wanted to keep quiet about the incident, as it has just recently come up in the news. His humble demeanor only makes him more the hero.

Cumberbatch told Ellen he felt awkward talking about it because he didn’t feel he did anything significant. He also noted that the scene could’ve been much more dangerous if the robbers had any weapons, which luckily they did not.

No matter what, Benedict Cumberbatch is a hero in more than the cyclist’s eyes. It just goes to show that even celebrities see the world as the rest of us, and just want to look out for one another.
