Publisher's Summary

"I can hardly believe that it is more than half a century since I first stepped on to the stage of the Old Vic Theatre and into a way of life that has brought me the most rewarding professional relationships and friendships. I cannot imagine now ever doing anything else with my life except acting….”
—Judi Dench

From London’s glittering West End to Broadway’s bright lights, from her Academy Award-winning role as Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love to “M” in the James Bond films, Judi Dench has treated audiences to some of the greatest performances of our time.

She made her professional acting debut in 1957 with England’s Old Vic theatre company playing Ophelia in Hamlet, Katherine in Henry V (her New York debut), and then Juliet. In 1961, she joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, playing Anya in The Cherry Orchard with John Gielgud and Peggy Ashcroft. In 1968, she went beyond the classical stage to become a sensation as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, adding musical comedy to her repertoire.

Over the years, Dench has given indelible performances in the classics as well as some of the greatest plays and musicals of the 20th century, including Noël Coward’s Hay Fever, Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, Kaufman and Hart’s The Royal Family, and David Hare’s Amy’s View (for which she won the Tony Award). Recently, she made a triumphant return to A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Titania, a role she first played in 1962, now played as a theatre-besotted Queen Elizabeth I.

    "judi dench is amazing!"

    judi dench has had an amazing life and i loved hearing about it. Samantha Bond does an amazing job speaking like Judi Dench. i had to keep reminding myself that it is not her talking.

    "A disappointed fan"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, too reminiscent of the British Class System


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nothing stands out


    Any additional comments?

    I am a great fan of Judy Dench. I will watch any film in which she is involved in. She is a great actress. This book is snippets of the "right people" I was born and grew up in Great Britain. One of the reasons I left was the class system in which you are condemned to remain at the social level of your parents. You get the correct accent, go to the "right" schools interact with the "right" people and so forth. Judy is probably a lovely person who had all of those advantagesI wanted to gain an understanding or feeling for the "real" Judy Dench. I wish I had. If you want little "giggles" from the upper class this is the book for you.

    Very interesting. I will look for more books written by or about Dame Judi Dench. Also, I really enjoyed the reading by Samantha Bond.

    "Great Lady!"
    If you could sum up And Furthermore in three words, what would they be?

    What a life!


    What did you like best about this story?

    So many humorous anecdotes!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The laughter wasn't extreme; it was very natural and a lot of it.

    "Loved it"
    If you could sum up And Furthermore in three words, what would they be?

    Witty, informative, engaging.


    What other book might you compare And Furthermore to and why?

    I don't usually read memoirs.


    Which character – as performed by Samantha Bond – was your favorite?

    Samantha Bond sounds so much like Judi Dench, that you forget it isn't Judi reading to you.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Wonderfully laugh-out-loud funny in places,and also very generous with emotion and appreciation for her friends and family.


    Any additional comments?

    It transports you into the world ot theater and film, with Judi Dench as your guide. Who better? I came away wanting to see much more theater, and more of Ms. Dench. It isn't gossipy, so if that's what you are seeking, look elsewhere. A class act.
