Cumberbatch has the power

Benedict Cumberbatch is leading the way as the most influential actor in the world, according to an ongoing poll.

TIME magazine is working on its annual top 100 list, and the Sherlock star is head and shoulders above the competition, receiving more votes than the likes of Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence and even pop-megastar Miley Cyrus.

Although the poll is still open, Benedict is currently placed is sixth, behind the such stars as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce and Justin Bieber, and he is the only actor in the top 10 as it stands.

Given his prominence on the big and small screen, it perhaps shouldn’t be too surprising to see him held so highly in the minds of the public.

As well as his role as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC’s modern-day retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s literary detective, he’s become a go-to man in Hollywood.

The likes of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and his part in Star Trek Into Darkness have made him a valuable box office name, while taking on the role of Wikileaks leader Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate proved he could tackle the big issues.
