Dame Judi was born on December 9th, 1934 in York, England, and is one of the most versatile leading classical actresses of recent history,. Judi is unique in having sustained a television career that, both in breadth and depth, more than matches her work for the stage. The three roles for which she received, in the same year, a clutch of Best Actress and Best Light Entertainment Performance awards--a cancer ward sister in the single drama Going Gently, Ranyevskya in The Cherry Orchard and the gauche but capable Laura in the situation comedy series A Fine Romance--epitomize the versatility of this distinctive and popular performer and the range of work with which she has been associated across a career spanning four decades and some thirty parts. She was also made a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1988. Movie Credits
