"What’s not said is more important than what is said” - Penelope Wilton

It's all about theatre when it comes to me. It's the passion of my life. And to see Penelope Wilton on stage is simply a masterclass in acting. She's amazing.
Benedict Cumberbatch also performed a scene from Antony And Cleopatra with Dame Judi, before which she shared anecdotes from her time starring with Welsh actor Anthony Hopkins in the 1987 National Theatre production directed by Peter Hall.
"People just laughed when it was announced I was going to be Cleopatra - she’s meant to be a very, very tall girl so the challenge of that was considerable. As Anthony Hopkins was dying in my arms he’d say to me: ‘I’m off for a nice cup of tea now’.” (x)
