In the global fight against climate change, Benedict Cumberbatch has clearly positioned himself. The actor, filming in London for the film Louis Wain, with Claire Foy, spent part of Wednesday night with the
Activists of Extinction Rebellion.

Protesters were on the third day of two weeks of protests and occupation of Trafalgar Square, demanding urgent action to protect the environment from governments around the world.

The star of Sherlock would have spent at least two hours with them and even posed for a series of photos with the protesters as the relay
theEvening Standard, in full non-violent sit-in in the British capital.

Elementary, my dear rebel

Benedict Cumberbatch is the latest star to have shown his support for Extinction Rebellion (XR), which has been noted for several months for its shock actions, including Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam or Sydney. Recently, actors Stephen Fry, Olivia Colman or comic Asim Chaudry posed with badges marked with the logo of XR. On Thursday, the British branch of the business group announced a blockage, again non-violent, London City airport, where several flights have already been delayed, according to the
BBC.
