Benedict pens letter to Sherlock fan that died

February 26th, 2015

Benedict Cumberbatch wrote a heartfelt letter apologising for not attending the funeral of a teenage Sherlock fan.

The 38-year-old Oscar nominee sent his “deepest sympathies” to the family of 14-year-old Eve Shepherd, explaining that he couldn’t be there because he was “filming the show she loved”.

The touching tribute was read out during the ceremony in Padgate, Cheshire, which was attended by mourners wearing deer stalker hats.

It read: “I send my deepest sympathies to Eve’s family. To lose someone so young who fought for her health all her life must be beyond endurance.

“I hope they can take solace from the fact that she was clearly much loved and her support of our show is hugely appreciated and shall be remembered.

“I wish I could be there but sadly am filming the show she loved. God rest her soul. With all my love and sympathies, Benedict xxx”

The procession  left the church after the ceremony accompanied by the Sherlock theme tune.

Her father, Mark, 47, told the MailOnline: “Eve would find this funny as she was a big TV and film fan. She would be giggling her head off at the thought she was in the newspaper.

“But she would be so happy about the letter from Benedict – she was a huge fan.”

Eve was born prematurely at just 28 weeks. She survived to the age of 14 despite not being expected to survive longer than 24 hours by medics at her birth.

During her life, she underwent 200 operations, including having a tracheotomy tube fitted to help her breathe.

She died of breathing difficulties earlier this month.

Her mother Jane, 46, who was her full-time carer, said: “The doctors kept her alive which was a miracle.

“If we are being honest they thought she was only going to live a day but she never gave up and we never gave up.”

The congregation were encouraged to make donations to the Peter Pan ward at Great Ormond Street, Alder Hey Bereavement team and Warrington Animal Welfare.

Hamlet is to be broadcast live from select venues on the 15th October in the UK and Europe. The US broadcast will be on the same day, but with a delay. So if you missed out on tickets you can still watch it. Tickets for NT Live venues go on sale Monday 16 March 2015. Venues to be announced shortly. For more information go here.

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game, Frankenstein at the National Theatre) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, National Theatre Live will broadcast this eagerly awaited production live to cinemas.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state.
