Benedict Cumberbatch is an extraordinary actor.

The man has appeared in over 80 on-screen productions, performed in several West End shows, has an Emmy and Laurence Olivier Award to his name, and holds a Masters degree in Classical Acting.

But his true talent lies in doing impressions.

Interviewers have long asked the Avengers: Endgame star to mimic fellow famous actors such as the late Alan Rickman, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hiddleston, and even Star Wars characters.

Cumberbatch’s also did an impression of his Avengers co-star, Tom Holland, who plays Spider-Man.

“Oh hi, guys. Hi, yeah, it’s Tom. Really excited to be here… No I can’t, otherwise I’ll admit secrets!” an animated Cumberbatch riffed during an Infinity War press junket.

And now the impersonatee in question has been asked his thoughts.

“I have seen Benedict impersonate me and, actually, it’s not that bad,” Holland said. “He hasn’t got the accent or the voice, but he’s got the energy.”

Well done, Doctor Strange.
