After accumulating a lifetime’s worth of theatre, film and television credits that could easily fill a book, Judi Dench has written one. This autobiography covers her professional and private lives. Trained at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama, it was her performance in her twenties as Juliet in the memorable Old Vic production that turned her into a star. But she became a household name via television, thanks initially to the sit-com, A Fine Romance, in which she played alongside the actor Michael Williams, whom she married in 1971. She has since been in numerous other series such as Cranford, movies like Notes on a Scandal, Shakespeare in Love for which she won a Hollywood Oscar, and most recently as 'M' in six James Bond. This book is much more than a career record, with her marriage, daughter, and her impish sense of humour contributing vividly to this fascinating account of more than half a century as Britain's best-loved actress.
