Keira and Benedict: A Tale of Two Cities

Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley both got to work on the set of The Imitation Games today, and they weren't even in the same city! The new film is a period piece set during World War II, wherein the title characters try to crack the elusive and infamous Enigma Code. Benedict wore a full suit while filming scenes in London; meanwhile, Keira was a ways out from the city, getting to work in Hertfordshire.

Our curiosity has piqued over Benedict in recent months, after we found out that not only is he playing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the upcoming film The Fifth Estate, but also that he was the victim of a terrifying abduction in 2005. Keira, on the other hand, has been lying low recently. We haven't seen much of her since her wedding to James Righton in May; we're guessing she was busy enjoying her honeymoon and basking in the joy of her new marriage. Either way, it's time to get back to work!
