Don't be such a snob aunt Constance. 
Me? I haven't a snobbish bone in my body.

hello! where did you get the footage from Peter and Alice to make this (/post/79182779676) gifset?

Violet: “Just because you’re an old widow, I see no necessity to eat off a tray”
Isobel: “You and I are different”
Violet: “Yes, that is very true”

Isobel: “You and I are different”Violet: “Yes, that is very true…”

Isobel: “You and I are different”
Violet: “Yes, that is very true…”

 I loved Judi Dench in Peter and Alice, as I love her in everything she does. I found myself thinking about the time I worked with her in 1989. I was very struck by watching Judi rehearse. She’d find a moment in the play, and I’d sit there thinking, “Well, that’s amazing. Surely that will now be set in stone.” But it never was. Every time we rehearsed, she would dig and delve and perform that moment another way. She was constantly in the moment, in a very natural and uncalculated way. I think that’s her great gift: that boldness, that confidence in what she can do. She never plays it safe.- Lesley Manville (Olivier Award winner)
