Dame Judi Dench Biography

Dame Judi Dench is known to moviegoers as star performer of the stately matron variety, thanks especially to her roles as Queen Victoria in Mrs. Brown (1997) and Queen Elizabeth in Shakespeare in Love (1998, starring Gwyneth Paltrow). Dench has been on the British stage since the late 1950s, and in television and films since the 1960s. Her many awards include an Oscar (1999, for her brief appearance in Shakespeare in Love), a Tony (1999, for Amy's View) and nine awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). She was awarded an Order of the British Empire in 1970 and made a Dame of the British Empire in 1988 in recognition of her illustrious theater career, but it took high-profile film roles in the 1990s to make her an international celebrity. She has received six Oscar nominations, including the 2005 comedy Mrs. Henderson Presents and the 2006 drama Notes on a Scandal.

In Britain, Dench has developed a reputation as one of the greatest actors of the post-war period, primarily through her work in theatre, which has been her forte throughout her career. She has more than once been named number one in polls for Britain's best actor.

Early years
Through her parents, Dench had regular contact with the theatre. Her father, a physician, was also the GP for the York theatre, and her mother was its wardrobe mistress.Actors often stayed in the Dench household. During these years, Judi Dench was involved on a non-professional basis in the first three productions of the modern revival of the York Mystery Plays in the 1950s. In 1957, in one of the last productions in which she appeared during this period, she played the role of the Virgin Mary, performed on a fixed stage in the Museum Gardens.Though she initially trained as a set designer, she became interested in drama school as her brother Jeff attended the Central School of Speech and Drama.She applied and was accepted, where she was a classmate of Vanessa Redgrave, graduating with a first class degree in drama and four acting prizes, one being the Gold Medal as Outstanding Student.

Personal life
On 5 February 1971, Dench married British actor Michael Williams and they had their only child, Tara Cressida Frances Williams, known professionally as "Finty" Williams, on 24 September 1972. Dench and her husband starred together in several stage productions, and the Bob Larbey British television sitcom, A Fine Romance (1981–84). Michael Williams died from lung cancer in 2001, aged 65. In early 2012, Dench discussed her macular degeneration, with one eye "dry" and the other "wet", for which she has been treated with injections into the eye. She said that she needs someone to read scripts to her.

In 2013, she spoke about her personal religious faith. Dench, a Quaker, said "I think it informs everything I do ... I couldn’t be without it".
