Dame Judi Dench is an English actress. She was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1988. Her film career took off after being cast a M in the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye. She has also been commended for roles in Mrs. Brown, Iris and Notes on a Scandal.
The definitive representation
I have to agree that Dame Judi is the best actress in the world as we speak. She is a versatile thespian and a very beautiful woman. Dame Judi has stayed at the summit with a male dominated industry yet she hasn't lost her femininity or her good sensibility which is so apparent in everything she does. If ever there was "a corner of a foreign field that was forever England" as Rupert Brooke told us, Dame Judi as my lovemark of acting brilliance is the definitive representation of that ideal. Hope we see more of you always.

Criminally contemporary and classical on the stage
Dame Judi is such a beautiful lady and unassuming actress. She is fantastic on the stage and recently Hollywood is having a love affair with her. She can be criminally contemporary as in James Bond and classical on the British stage. In the league of Derek Jacobi - you always take way something that she has given you through her acting excellence.
