Star Trek needs more advanced cognitive science. The work of Kahneman can augment one of its central philosophical themes. We now have less warped models of intuition, logic, and morality.

Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch: I struggle to learn lines and have had meltdowns on set

Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch: I struggle to learn lines and have had meltdowns on set | Star Trek Scoops | Scoop.it

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch admits he has a poor memory and has a tough time trying to remember his lines.

It's something he's always found difficult and it got particularly bad when he was filming Star Trek Into Darkness.

‘I really struggle to learn by rote and it led to meltdowns on set, which is embarrassing and shameful,' says Benedict, 36.

‘It's been a problem since I was a boy and had to spend double the amount of time learning things like French vocabulary.'

Benedict nearly missed landing the role of villain John Harrison in the sci-fi flick as his forgetfulness caused him to miss his audition in Hollywood.

The Sherlock star was forced to film a scene in his kitchen at home on a friend's iPhone and send it to director JJ Abrams, who luckily still gave him the part.

‘It was that close, but I got lucky again,' Benedict tells Entertainment Weekly.

‘I seem to be doing OK despite not being able to remember lines sometimes. In fact, it's all a little daunting right now.'

Did he actually miss an audition in Hollywood? That's not the story he told in the past, simply that the call came during Christmas. I wonder about the accuracy of this reporter...(not you Tee, of course).
Tee Poulson's comment, May 27, 2013 6:59 AM
@Anna, I wondered the exact same thing...
Ann Wagner's comment, May 27, 2013 10:33 AM
He said he meditates and that helps to keep things in perspective. And I hear you about the French vocab!
