Dame Judi Dench CH, DBE, FRSA

Undoubtedly best known as one of the greatest actresses of the post-war period, Yorkshire born Dench briefly played Pru Forrest in the BBC’s The Archers. She’s an advocate for “more progressive drug policies” and only took the role of Lady Catherine de Bourgh in Pride & Prejudice after director Joe Wright wrote to her and said: “I love it when you play a bitch. Please come and be a bitch for me.” There’s barely a role she hasn’t conquered.

  1. I couldn’t disagree more.
    She just plays herself in Every-Single-Film , the only difference is the frock and the script.
    Everything is the same.
    From the hairstyle, to the posture and mannerisms, to the way she speaks. sitcom A Fine Romance.
    Nothing has changed since the 1970’s sitcom “A Fine Romance”
    Ditto Maggie Smith in that respect.
    Show me a British actress who can match Meryl Streep in talent and versatility.
    Apart from our Rochdale-born Andrea Risborough, there is none.

  2. Glenda Jackson forgotten treasure of the Screen and Stage. As an actress Glenda Jackson won two Academy Awards (Oscars) for “Woman in Love” (1969) and “Touch of Class” (1973) including stunning performances in movies such as “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and Triple Echo with Oliver Reed. Glenda in her prime and peak would have given Meryl Streep a run for her money.

  3. Elizabeth Taylor’s portrayal of Martha in the Mike Nicols Film “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” (1966) was the most powerful performance by a British born actress ever. The film was nominated in every category at the Academy Awards. The days of the real movie stars.
