“People think I ignore them or go crazy, but I do not see them,” said the 84-year-old Briton.
Judi Dench is known worldwide for her role in James Bond, as well as her long acting career. Although she is still very active, with the filming of six films this year, she will soon have to adapt her activity because of a deterioration of her vision.
Agent M’s interpreter has recently had eye disease, which is common for people of her age. Doctors can slow down this condition but can not cure it. “The worst thing for me is not being able to drive anymore,” the actress complains. “I lose my freedom of movement and become dependent on others. At the same time, if I continued driving, I could have killed someone.
” To cope with this loss of sight, Judi Dench agrees to get help: “My texts are printed in larger letters,” she says. “People read me the newspaper. But what I miss most is to fill myself the crossword puzzle. Despite this difficulty, the actress refuses to stop everything, quite the contrary.
In addition to the projects she is already working on, she would like to participate in the remake of the musical “Cats” next year. She adds, “I am what I do. The day I can not play and I can not fulfill my life creatively, that day will be the last day of my life. And I’m really not ready for that. “
