Judi Dench as Cleopatra in Shakespeare's Antony And Cleopatra at the National Theatre
"Recently I saw a photograph of this performance, and it wasn't at all what I remembered. Oh, the costume was the same and the wig was the same, but it was Judi Dench in costume, looking slightly uncomfortable. In performance at the Olivier Theatre she was Cleopatra, she was a goddess. The most beautiful woman in the world. The sexiest woman in the world. Miss Dench created a sensual and cunning creature who dominated the vast stage with the slightest gesture and simply took your breath away."
