10-Oct-2018 • Bond 25
Dame Judi Dench is doing press junkets for her new film 'Red Joan,' and Collider noted that Dench had starred in 'Jane Eyre' under the directorship of Cary Joji Fukunaga - who announced as Danny Boyle's replacement for Bond 25 last month.
You made seven James Bond movies and for the first time, the next film will be directed by an American, Cary Joji Fukunaga. What do you think of that?
DENCH: I did Jane Eyre for Cary and he’s absolutely a sweet person. I want to get a message to him to say how glad I am that he’s doing it. I’m sure he’ll give his own take on it and that will be refreshing. I expect he’ll do it very, very well. And Ralph Fiennes I expect will play M very well–she said through gritted teeth!
Were you sad to give up M?
DENCH: No, no, no. But in fact I did eight of them, because I did one morning on Spectre. I haven’t seen Spectre. M sent a message over the telly. She was on the television for a minute or something like that. So I can say I did eight.
