"I'm very frightened of worms, ever since one jumped into my sandal when I was a little girl. I can get on with a snake, just not worms. And I hate the dark; I used to get claustrophobic in the cinema... Of course I've got a temper, but not many people have seen it. If I ever behaved like my character M in the Bond series, my marriage would not have lasted 30 years."

-- Dame Judi Dench in a far-ranging introspection for the Guardian called "This much I know"

I've always adored Judi Dench! Loved her on "As Time Goes By" and in all of her wonderful movie roles! She's got so much class! I can see her having a temper - just shows she's human! It's also nice to know we both do okay with snakes!
