Judi Dench

Dame Judith Olivia "Judi" Dench, CH DBE FRSA is an English film, stage and television actor. Dench made her professional debut in 1957 with the Old Vic Company. Over the following few years she played in several of Shakespeare's plays in such roles as Ophelia in Hamlet, Juliet in Romeo and Juliet and Lady Macbeth in Macbeth. She branched into film work, and won a BAFTA Award as Most Promising Newcomer; however, most of her work during this period was in theatre. Not generally known as a singer, she drew strong reviews for her leading role in the musical Cabaret in 1968. Over the next two decades, she established herself as one of the most significant British theatre performers, working for the National Theatre Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company. In television, she achieved success during this period, in the series A Fine Romance from 1981 until 1984 and in 1992 began a continuing role in the television romantic comedy series As Time Goes By. Her film appearances were infrequent until she was cast as M in GoldenEye, a role she continued to play in James Bond films through to Skyfall. She received several notable film awards for her role as Queen Victoria in Mrs. Brown, and has since been acclaimed for her work in such films as Shakespeare in Love, Chocolat, Iris, Mrs Henderson Presents and Notes on a Scandal, and the television production The Last of the Blonde Bombshells.
