Dame Judi Dench Is Afraid Of The Dark


Unlike many people her age, the amazing Dame Judi Dench, who's 76, is not thinking about retiring:

Why don't I want to retire? Because if I retire I think I should fall over. You've got to keep learning. I think everybody should take the time to recite two lines of something every day. I've also just taken up sudoku-–bloody difficult, isn't it.

And while she may seem fearless, it's nice to know that even the mighty Ms. Dench has a few things that scare her:

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.
