You may remember that hilarious “pengwings” viral video that was released a few weeks ago. Someone watching a BBC documentary narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch noticed that he could not say the word ‘penguin.’ It was just another quirky thing that made the actor more lovable.
Well, nor Graham Norton decided to ask Cumberbatch a few questions sent in by fans. He said out of all questions, the penguin question came in at the top of the list. The actor took it all in good fun, but blushed when the question was brought up…and said he now avoids saying the word at all costs!
(Adding to the hilarity of it all- Cumberbatch plays a wolf in the upcoming movie Penguins of Madagascar.)
