Benedict Cumberbatch (English actor and film producer)

* A new biography of Benedict Cumberbatch gives his birth time as "12pm." If we take 12 a.m. as the start of the day, then 12 p.m. means noon. In which case, Cumberbatch has Pluto on the Ascendant - both in Libra - ruled by Venus in dramatic Leo.

Thanks to Frank Clifford for the book reference.
