In this exclusive clip from Stephen Hawking's upcoming documentary, Benedict Cumberbatch talks about playing the theoretical physicist in his early struggles with motor neurone disease.
“I felt a huge onus of responsibility to get that part of his life right,” Cumberbatch says. “It’s a terrifying prospect to have a completely functioning mind inside a body that locks you in, that keeps you stationary.”
“One of the things I wanted to get right was to show the progression of his condition and show where the instability and fear came from.”
