Description

The very name encourages a warm and admiring response from the public, whether as an actress admired for her Shakespearean performances or in the contemporary theatre (plays by David Hare, Hugh Whitemore etc), or on TV (the series A FINE ROMANCE and AS TIME GOES BY) or in the cinema (MRS BROWN, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, SHIPPING NEWS, IRIS, and four James Bond films as 'M'). Judi Dench is Britain's favourite actress. Some might make claims for Felicity Kendal or Prunella Scales, but Judi is box-office. When she and Maggie Smith - another favourite - appeared together in a David Hare play last year all seats were sold for the run within 24 hours. John Miller has known her for ten years. His biography of Judi, published originally by W&N in 1999 and a regular reprinter in Orion pb, has now sold 92,000 copies in all editions (this figure audited by Wendy Johnstone in Orion Accounts). For her seventieth birthday we will produce a book of tributes by fellow actors, writers - people of the theatre, film and TV in a volume edited by John Miller. Judi has promised full co-operation, including her photograph albums. The list of those being apporoached includes Perce Brosnan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Dav
