Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I'm more comfortable on stage, where there is an audience to tell a story to, as opposed to a film set where you are not in charge at all. On stage you can hear an audience's reactions. Within two minutes of a play starting you know how the evening will go. On film you're more reliant on the director. The moment he leaves you, you're like a child learning to walk. See more »

Trivia:

Judi Dench is the new narrator of "Spaceship Earth", the dark ride at EPCOT. She replaced Jeremy Irons after Walt Disney World and Siemens decided to update the classic ride housed inside the infamous golf-ball. See more »

Trademark:

Known for often playing dignified, strong willed women in positions of authority who are sometimes opposed or criticised by those under her.

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
