I won't say " Break a leg ". This Lady is the tops.
They say she is recovering from Knee surgery. I
over came the hip, but I was told the knee is
a longer recoup. Dench is 78 years old and looks great.
Born in 1934 , lived in York, England. Her Father was a Doctor
and Mother a wardrobe lady in the theatre.
Dench was in plays starting 1950's. Started out as a set designer.
Judi was a school classmate with Vanessa Redgrave.
I think they are making another Marigold Hotel.
She has played on the stage all over England, plus many awards
and movies, also PBS TV programs like, As Time Goes By
I liked her as Mrs Brown, then Skyfall, Chocolat
Mrs Henderson Presents, Notes on a scandal.
Mrs Dench lost her 18 century home by fire, like I did and I was in my 60's also.
No one was harmed and it was in Hampstead, London. Dench lives in Surrey.
GET WELL JUDI..

A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work.
Art is truly an expession of experience and love to her.
