"I like all the things that are the complete opposite of working at the pace that I’m currently working. But the thing that gets me out of the bed every morning is that I love it. I just have to occasionally remind myself not to love it as much as I do and leave time for the rest of my life… I want to do as much as I can, but I also want to vary it, maybe as a producer, director or writer, but I also be a person of the world and live a life…" (x)

I was all: ice bucket what? […] Then I cottoned on to what it was and what it was in aid of and I thought: I need to do this properly. I was late and had been nominated more than once so I did it a few times. – Benedict Cumberbatch on his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (x)
