From the Evening Standard itself:

Benedict Cumberbatch, 35, and Jonny Lee Miller, 39, shared best actor's award for alternating in the roles of the scientist and the creature in Danny Boyle's version of Frankenstein.

Cumberbatch wanted to attend the ceremony so much that he agreed to a drive through the night back to a film set in Belgium for a 7am start.

It was right they shared the honour, he said. "It is absolutely what the whole venture was about - we split labour on it, we held hands jumping over cliffs on it and we ended the journey with it."

Miller, who lives in Los Angeles, said he had never won an award before and would love to perform in London theatre again. "I'm very, very happy. It was one of the best work experiences I've ever had in my life."

It was lovely to see them reunited to receive their acclaim. Once more Benedict astounds me with his commitment to all aspects of his work and his fellow actors. And Jonny, bless him, who has never won an award before... nice to see him with his own hair again. :-))

Brilliant - thank you so much for posting this.

I picked up an Evening Standard yesterday (actually, several if I am honest!), but had not yet had the chance to read the feature either in the physical paper or, indeed, online. I was too busy watching Eastenders!

Ha! Just my point. Soaps can take over your life! As can the internet. Time I got off line again! :-)))
