When M accidentally video-called Q from the bath

30-Nov-2023 • Actor News

Dame Judi Dench has admitted to an embarrassing episode when she inadvertently video-called a fellow MI6 regular from her bathtub.

Talking to Zoe Ball on her Radio 2 breakfast show, Dame Judi said: “I can’t see at all, so my phone is an anathema to me. I don’t know what all those buttons are for."

“My daughter Finty rang me and said: ‘It’s Chris Logan’s birthday and he’s having a walk with Ben Whishaw, please wish him happy birthday.’ I went upstairs and got into my bath.

"I picked up my phone and I said: ‘Chris, Happy Birthday!’ And I just saw these two people turn and look shocked. Well, I was FaceTiming them!”
