Dame Judi Dench

A Tribute to Dame Judi Dench’s Career

Biography

About Dame Judi

Judith Olivia Dench (Judi) was born in York, England on December 9, 1934.
Her parents, Dr. Reginald and Olave Dench, were both enthusiastic amateur
actors, and her siblings Peter and Jeffery also acted in local productions.

Her parents first took Judi to see a performance when she was four years old
and she laughed so hard they feared she would make herself ill so they left
early.  (Apparently convinced they had over-reacted they brought her back the
next night.)  A year later she made her drama debut, playing the role of a
snail.

A spirited child, Judi drew on the walls of her bedroom, dressed the
family cats in doll clothes and wreaked such havoc playing in the yard her
father’s partner had to ask her to stop — she was disturbing the patients.
