Sherlock: Martin Freeman’s delight at Emmy haul. [X]
I’ve transcribed only a couple of questions
Interviewer: How did you hear that in fact you had won the Emmy?
Martin: I got a text from my American agent and she said You’ve just won. I was Ah, very very nice. And then I went to sleep, and then woke up to find that Ben had won and Steven Moffat had won. And Fargo has also done really well, you know both shows I was in that had been nominated did really well so I was very pleased about that.
Interviewer: Sherlock of course, back next year. Filming starts in January. I suppose all we know at this stage is that it will definitely be full of surprises, do you know much more than that?
Martin: Yeah. Well we know a bit more than that but obviously nothing I would say or could explain as eloquently as Steven Moffat or Mark Gatiss could. Yeah but it’s going to be full of surprises for you and for us and for everybody, I think that’s what they are really good at and I think that we just know to expect the unexpected now but within the parameters of a world we all sort of know and love quite well and we know this characters pretty well and we know the world that they inhabit and what’s been explained to me and Ben and to Amanda Abbington my miss who plays Mary has been very very exciting. The plans that they’ve got for the sort of the overarching series is… Oh! Man… it’s just.. it’s just so exciting!
you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
