Washington DC: David Gilmour fans at Royal Albert Hall in London were taken aback, in a good way, when Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch decided to hop on the stage to debut his singing skills.
- Benedict Cumberbatch performed with David Gilmour on September 28
- Benedict will next be seen in Doctor Strange
- The film will release on November 4
The Hollywood actor surprised an arena full of David Gilmour fans as he debuted Pink Floyd's popular track, Comfortably Numb with the group's former member, reports E! Online
Most fans of the actor might have missed the incredible moment but luckily, concertgoers did not waste any time to share, on social media, the captured performance on their phones.
A Sherlock fan page tweeted the video:
True to his astounding characters in his movies including the likes of The Imitation Game and Doctor Strange, Benedict is steadily showing the world his hidden talents time after time.
When the Star Trek Into Darkness actor is not hitting some notes in front of thousands on stage, he is asking the hard-hitting questions to fellow Hollywood stars.
The Black Mass star recently bombed fellow British star Tom Hiddleston with questions in an issue of a celebrity magazine, 'Interview,' which publishes conversations between some of the most creative minds from the worlds of fashion, art and entertainment.
In the conversation with The Night Manager actor touched on a number of topics, including one that Benedict could not ignore-his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
"There's another weight of us being in the public eye, which is this presumption that, because your work and your promotion work is very public, your private life should be, too. And, without getting into a huge debate, I just want to say that I'm not going to ask questions about my friend's personal life just because there are unsolicited photographs of him and a certain someone, in a relationship or together," he said.
However, after a certain pause, Tom dropped the topic saying, "I'm not going to get into that. So that door is closed, dear reader."
