Dame Judi Dench, the actress who was once named Britain’s second-most-liked and respected person—above the queen—is now streaming into homes around the world. The footage comes from an exclusive 90-minute interview recorded at Richmond’s Orange Tree Theatre, where the Dench takes watchers on a five-point tour of her career.
