Namely, the Sherlock Holmes star wrote a very touching letter to the family of Eve Shepherd, a 14-year-old Sherlock fan, saying that he is very sorry for missing her funeral due to filming obligations. He wrote her parents, apologizing and saying that he missed the funeral because he was “filming the show she loved.”
