SDCC 2012: Jonny Lee Miller on talking to Benedict Cumberbatch about Sherlock Holmes
Taken from TV Guide’s summary of the Elementary panel at Comic Con last night, Jonny Lee Miller briefly spoke about a conversation he had with Benedict Cumberbatch on differentiating his interpretation of Holmes from that in BBC Sherlock:
Miller acknowledged that the two talked about their similar projects, but declined to divulge exactly what was said. “We wanted to be sure that it was going to be very different, so that was the conversation that we had,” Miller said. “He’s been very, very supportive actually. We just discussed what a wonderful character it is.”
