The pair were photographed holding hands, leading blogs to wonder if they were dating.
The Daily Mirror reports that a source said that the two are just close friends.
“Charlotte (Asprey) has been friends with Benedict for a number of years now,” the source said.
“She joined him to celebrate his birthday along with several of their close pals and some of his family members.”
Although Asprey hasn’t had the success that Cumberbatch has, her star may be about to rise as she will appear in the upcoming TV series “Dracula,” which is currently filming.
The series will star heartthrob Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Dracula. Rhys-Meyers previously starred as a young Henry VIII in the TV series “The Tudors,” as well as appeared in hit films including “Bend It Like Beckham” and “Match Point.”
Previously, Asprey had a small part in the 2011 film “Will” and appeared in guest roles in several TV series, including “Midsomer Murders,” “Doctors,” “Holby City” and “Elizabeth I.”
