Judi Dench takes a tumble
Actress and a real Dame (no really, she is) Judi Dench took a bit of a tumble yesterday outside of the theatre where she was performing. The Sun (yes I know) is saying that Dench was leaving London’s Wyndham theatre after a starring performance in French history play Madame De Sade when she tripped over the doorway in front of some awaiting fans.
An onlooker said: “It was absolutely horrifying, seeing Dame Judi fall like that.
“One minute I was saying to my friend ‘there’s Dame Judi’ and the next minute she fell over, grasping her arm and screeching in pain.
“She kept screaming ‘arrgh’ over and over again. We ran over and helped her up.
“Unbelievably, she gave us a glowing smile as we lifted her off the ground.
“It looked very serious but she didn’t want to get into an ambulance and we later cancelled it.”
Eventually, Dench did make it to the ER and was told that she had severely sprained ankle. She was also told not to put any weight on it, so she will not be starring in her role while she heals.
