To celebrate the release of The Grinch, the latest adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic story, we had the pleasure of sitting down with the films star, Benedict Cumberbatch, to chat all things green and festive. We LOVED the film – you can read our review here.

The new film comes from Illumination, the animation studio behind such hits as Despicable Me, Minions and The Secret Life of Pets, and has been given a little update to reflect modern life. That said, all the usual Christmas stealing is in place and Cumberbatch talks to us about playing the character, the liberation with voice acting and why we just love a, well, Grinch turned good in the lead up to Santa’s arrival.

The Grinch is in UK cinemas now.
