It could have went badly...
In an interview with Radio Times (via NME), Martin Freeman revealed that he almost blew his audition for Sherlock because his wallet was stole before it happened. He plays Dr. John Watson on the show. The series returns on January 1, 2014 on the BBC.
Freeman said: "I'll admit maybe I was a bit stressed. But a week later my agent rang and said, 'Listen, this Sherlock thing, they're sort of under the impression you weren't that into it.' And I said 'Oh … I am really interested. Please call them and let them know that I am interested. I wasn't being blase about it at all. I just wasn't on my best day. So I came in again, read with Benedict and it instantly worked, it seemed to me … I thought he was a fantastic actor and there was something about our rhythms, similarities and differences that meant that it just happened."
