September 8, 2014
Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba and Gillian Anderson are among the famous acting stars who have come together for a highly visual campaign to drive home the urgency of developing new treatments for cancer.
The Sherlock, Luther and X-Files stars are joined by Tom Hardy, Michelle Dockery, Eddie Redmayne, Anna Friel, Sheridan Smith and Steve Coogan to star in an exclusive short film and set of photographs shot by the photographer and director Greg Williams to support the Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
Gillian Anderson said: "We need to let cancer know that it's now payback time and we will do whatever is in our power to beat it."
