BOOK: AND FURTHERMORE

AUTHOR: Judi Dench

PUBLISHER: Phoenix (Hachette Aust)

RRP: $22.99

REVIEWER: Mary Ann Elliott

MUCH-LOVED British actor Dame Judi Dench could hardly be less like a dame in her delightful autobiography.

Coming from a down-to-earth Yorkshire family, the star of stage and screen talks candidly about her long career, starting with her professional debut with the Old Vic Company, appearing in many Shakespeare plays.

Graduating to such diverse roles as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Cleopatra, Jean in As Time Goes By, Mrs. Brown (Queen Victoria), and as M in the James Bond films, Judi Dench has thrived on variety.

In her book it is obvious that the more challenges and diversity she has, the more she likes it.

Her generosity of spirit towards her fellow actors and her friends also leaps from the pages.

Altogether she comes across very much as one imagines her to be; honest, kind, charming and witty, loving what she does.

At 77 she has no thoughts of retiring, fortunately for us, her adoring fans, having recently shot films in Rajasthan and in Hollywood, the latter directed by Clint Eastwood.
