“It’s bizarre that I helped Judi to an Oscar nomination for best actress.”
"When I first met her at her home in Sussex, I went over to tell her the story, and I knocked on her door and she made me a cup of tea and a sandwich. I called her ‘Dame Judi’ and she said, ‘Please stop calling me that, call me Judi.’ She’s not that kind of person. She’s got a wonderful sense of humor. There’s no real front."
