Doctor Strange actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, was seen attending an event for breast cancer awareness in October. NEW YOU caught up with him on the red carpet and asked him how he would encourage the women in his life to be proactive in their health. He considered himself very lucky that at the moment no one close to him was at any risk. He also stressed the fact that he comes from a country (England) that supports education.  When it comes to breast cancer awareness, he feels that education is paramount. “Awareness is always something an actor can do to bring a spotlight onto a cause,” says Cumberbatch. The English actor and film producer has performed in film, television, theater, and radio. Time magazine included him in their annual Time 100 as one of the “Most Influential People in the World.” We thank him for casting his spotlight on the importance of breast cancer awareness.
