I've been dying to see/hear him sneeze!
I think he would sneeze like this : his nose would start twitching because of the tickle and his breath would hitch a few times. The sneeze would sound wet but half-stifled,like : "HA-ttssshhh!" or even "HA-tchoo!".
I think he's a stifler and he sneezes into tissues whenever he can,trying not to sniffle/blow his nose afterwards and,if he really needs to,I reckon he'd do it as quietly and politely as possible.
What do you think?
- Sneezing in films/bloopers...
This is related to the 1st one,but I'm going to explain it in a more detailed way :
When an actor/actress (especially those who have a lead role) has a really bad cold/flu goes to work anyway but they can't stop sneezing and are soo congested that they can't pronounce m's and n's without sounding ridiculously stuffed up. That prevents the rest of the crew from filming and it ends up being postponed.
That actually happened while filming the 1st series of Sherlock : Benedict Cumberbatch had a very bad case of the flu (that's why I think he sounded slightly congested in the 1st 2 episodes) but denied and ignored it until it turned into pneumonia and he ended up being hospitalised. According to him,he only missed one day of filming (I mean,OMG). Something similar happened while filming the 3rd series,when Martin Freeman got sick and "was trying not to sneeze everywhere" (his words) : that's why he sounds stuffy almost all the time.
I'm aware of the fact it's already been said,but another scenario I find great is getting completely soaked in the rain,shivering from the cold,sneezing and actually falling ill the day after (maybe for not getting properly dry).
I don't know but I remember when I was a kid they where generally a very rare and almost unknown thing, from what I remember there where very few people who'd as far as I know heard of them or at least knew much about "hayfever" at all. other then like doctors or other medical people but in general they did'nt seem to my memory, to be really much of a thing. then I was around 14 or 15 peoples started mentioning it more... they where just so rare most people as I can recall did'nt know much about it. and well now it's a nightmare for a h**l of a lot of people! I don't even recall hearing the words "allergies" or "hayfever" until I was in my teens. other then of course my brother being allergict to peas and cellary, odd thing he could eat them as long as they where not cooked. but yeah I was around 13 or 14 the first time I never remember hearing the terms at all. and i never saw anything about it that i recall till I was in my teens as well like 16 or 17 so...
