Judi Dench said it has become impossible for her to read scripts

In her recent appearance on Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, the 88-year-old revealed it is impossible for her to read scripts. Moreover, she has a “photographic memory” and also wants to find a machine. She wishes it makes her able to read lines and also locate them on the page. She said, host Graham Norton, “It has become impossible and because I have a photographic memory, I need to find a machine that not only teaches me my lines but also tells me where they appear on the page. I used to find it very easy to learn lines and remember them. I could do the whole of Twelfth Night right now.”


She currently acted in the film Allelujah which is an adaptation of Alan Bennett’s 2018 play of the same name. Judi said it is “a big cheer for the NHS( the U.K.’s National Health Service).”

Moreover, she also added praising NHS, “We have to be reminded of that, I think. It has come out at a very good time. The cast is wonderful, and it was heaven to do.”

Previously, in 2012, The “Shakespeare in Love” alum revealed it is difficult to read scripts with her bad eye-sight. She said, “​​In response to the numerous articles in the media concerning my eye condition – macular degeneration- I do not wish for this to be overblown. This condition is something that thousands and thousands of people all over the world are having to contend with…and it’s something I have learnt to cope with and adapt to — and it will not lead to blindness.”
