Dame Eileen Atkins
5' 7" (1.7 m)
Did You Know?
There's no such thing as a legend. Nearly everyone has forgotten Laurence Olivier
. What's that dreadful word - 'dynasty', as in the Redgraves and Foxes? Acting is not in the blood - otherwise what are Judi Dench
, Maggie Smith
and I doing here? I'm the least well known, for a very good reason. Judi's an incredible actress who wouldn't be so popular if she hadn't been in As Time Goes By
She was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1990 Queen's Honours List and awarded Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2001 Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to drama.
