Benedict Cumberbatch is certainly a man of many talents. One of his fan favourites are his impressions, which every Cumberbatch fan absolutely adores. Previously, we have had impersonations of Alan Rickman, David Tennant, and Jonathon Ross in one interview as well as Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman in an audio commentary with Mark Gatiss. It is clear that he has a fairly wide range of voices and accents in his repertoire. Well now, we have an impersonation that leaves Harrison Ford speechless, frightened and delighted all at the same time. How has he managed that? By voicing an incredibly accurate Wookie, of course! Back on 19th October, Cumberbatch sat on Graham Norton’s sofa with Ford and comedian Jack Whitehall, and were discussing impressions in relation to his stunningly accurate performance as Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate. Norton, recalling a previous impersonation on his own laugh, asked Cumberbatch about his apparent love for celebrity impressions, to which he replied, “It’s just sort of having an ear, it’s part of what we do, I guess,” before launching into Chewbacca’s cry. Watch the impression below, complete with Ford’s shocked reaction, and let us know your reactions!
