She’s So Dench: Judi Dench’s Most Notable Roles Every Cinema Lover Should Know About
February 19, 2018
Judi Dench is a well-known British actress who gained popularity for her many stage roles and for her work in television and cinema industry. Over the years, she established herself as one of the most compelling British theatre performers as well as achieved a great success on TV. Her debut was in 1957 where she played Ophelia in Shakespeare's Hamlet at the Royal Court.
At 77, she was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration, which makes her gradually lose her sight. She said it's already so bad that she can only see the outlines of faces in front of her, and other people have to read scripts to her because this is the only way she can learn her lines.
I can’t read scripts anymore because of the trouble with my eyes. And so somebody comes in and reads them to me, like telling me a story.
