Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing in Biopic
The first official picture of Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing has been released.
The actor will play computer scientist Turing in new biopic The Imitation Game, which will be released in 2014.
The pioneer of modern-day computing is credited with cracking the German Enigma Code during World War II, but was later convicted for ‘indecency’ as a homosexual.
He was also ‘chemically castrated’ because of his sexuality, before committing suicide in 1954.
