One of the central characters in my novel, at the back of my mind looks like Benedict Cumberbatch. So while writing the story I have explicitly written that he looks like Benedict. It was also helping me with imagination and writing.
But now I am having second thoughts and thinking maybe if the reader doesn't like Benedict, it will make her not like my character, as my character has a lot of story time, its important for the reader to like him.
Is this a trivial case, or should I just put a general description,
for an e.g.
'with his angular face and gorgeous cheekbones, his voice was something that women would go crazy for'?
