If they made studio sitcoms any more, let alone just sitcoms, they could also make blooper shows again. Listen to how much fun these audiences are having.
My favourite fact about about Dame Judi Dench is her no-set hobby of embroidery. According to her Pride & Prejudice co-star Matthew MacFadyen …
She makes these like needlework embroideries on set in the tedium of filming … but they are all: ‘You Are a Cunt’. And she gives them as presents. And it’s Dame Judi Dench. And she is doing this beautifully, intricate, ornate (work). You kind of see the work materializing as the shoot goes on. Like: ‘You Are a Fucking Shit.
She’s a national treasure. And sometimes I learn fun things like this because of all the Sunday supplements I have to read for the podcast.
