Dame Judi Dench has coronavirus vaccine
Dame Judi Dench has had the first dose of her COVID-19 vaccine.
The ‘Skyfall’ actress – who is 86-years-old – recently received the first of her two doses of the coronavirus vaccine and she is keen to get the next one in a few months’ time.
Speaking about having the vaccine, she said: “I have [had the coronavirus vaccine]. I had one a week ago so I think my next is something like 11 weeks’ time, that’s a great start!”
And Judi has enjoyed going back to work and admits it was a “huge relief” to not only be able to film during the coronavirus pandemic, but also to do something different.
She added: “I was going to film something which has been postponed. I was, during this time, able to film with Kenneth Branagh, who wrote and directed a film about his childhood in Belfast … We were all incredible lines to each other, taking every precaution.
“Everybody wore masks and everything. So we were well looked after. It was a huge relief to do something and it was exciting too at that time. Otherwise you wake up and think, ‘What is the thing I will do today’ and try to get something done.”
The ‘Victoria and Abdul’ star has confessed she struggled without having a “work discipline” whilst she was forced to stay at home amid the coronavirus lockdown last year.
Speaking to BBC News, she shared: “It’s very difficult if you don’t have a work discipline to get yourself started in the morning really. It’s terribly easy just to sit and do nothing.”
