Benedict Cumberbatch’s talent for singing has been praised by his co-star in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Luke Evans. Luke, who plays Bard the Bowman, told the Daily Mail, ‘I’ve always known he [Benedict] was a great singer. He sang all the time on the set of The Hobbit – he wouldn’t stop. I’ve worked with him a lot and we’re really good friends so I know he sings all the time.’ Luke has a fine voice himself and trained as a singer before moving into acting.
Benedict, who plays the dragon Smaug in The Hobbit, can be heard singing in his new film August: Osage County.
