Benedict Cumberbatch has become engaged to actress Sophie Hunter, and fans are wondering about Hunter.
Cumberbatch, 38, announced the engagement to Hunter, 35, in the Times of London.
"The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London," the announcement read.
Hunter is a theatre and opera director as well as an actress. She directed the North American tour of the play 69 degrees South, which portrayed the voyage of Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, and the New York production of the oepra The Rape of Lucretia, among other plays and operas.
Cumberbatch's spokeswoman, Karon Maskill, confirmed the engagement.
The announcement comes only weeks after another eligible bachelor tied the knot. Hollywood star, George Clooney, married human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin.
The 38-year-old Cumberbatch became a global star with his modern-day portrayal of the cerebral sleuth Sherlock on BBC, and is being praised for his role as code-breaking genius Alan Turing in "The Imitation Game."
