London,Sept12:SHERLOCK star Benedict Cumberbatch could have earned £240,000 at one event just by posing for pictures with fans.
They were charged £75 a time to have their photo taken with the actor, 41, who posed for 3,190 snaps over two days.
It means Benedict, worth an estimated £25million, would have made £239,250 just on pictures like the one on the right — assuming he got it all.
But hundreds of fans would also have forked out £85 for an autograph and £25 to hear him talk to an audience.
One film buff, known only as Eva, 47, was happy to spend a total of £225 for the top package.
She said: “After a silly pic, brilliant talk and a lovely autograph I’m going to call it quits. I’m tired but happy.”
But one unimpressed parent dubbed him “Benedict Moneysnatch”.
Benedict was the star attraction at the London Film and Comic Convention held at Olympia at the end of July.
