Now & Then: Dame Judy Dench
As long as I remember, Dame Judi Dench has always been shall we say, an “older lady”.
I used to watch a sitcom she was in with Geoffrey Palmer in the 90s called As Time Goes By.
When you’ve only been aware of someone in their later years it’s always nice to see them in their youth because we can sometimes forget (much like with our parents) that they were young once too.
I found this picture of Judi Dench looking fresh faced and lovely, taken in 1963.
She was once told many years ago by a film director that she’d never make it in movies because she had “every single thing wrong with her face.”
She very prudently refuses to reveal the name of this director but I think it’s fair to say she proved him wrong. 👌
