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 nominated for a 1997 (1996) Laurence Olivier
Theatre Award for Best Actress in a play for her performance in "John Gabriel Borkman".
