"The thing about being an actor is that you turn into other people. You have to hide yourself a bit in order to let that other person come out."
- Penelope Wilton
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)
