Cumberbatch then went on to reveal his admiration for Abrams. “He’s a wonderful human being to be around, J.J. — on every level, as a dad, as a friend, as a director, as a musician,” he said. “He’s a polymath; he’s a really talented human being. And he has time for everyone and it’s all done with a really genuine interest in the story.”
