"She’d be frightened if she wasn’t frightened"She has technique to burn – she can turn a line on a fragment of a syllable, a scene on the twist of a finger – but her technique never shows. She has the ear of a musician and the eye of a painter. With her voice, that bluesy alto, she can bend a note from joy to a sob and she has a dancer’s dexterity, always using her body expressively. In film they say you should hold everything in, in theatre the opposite. But Judi breaks the rules; in any medium she seems mercurial and yet constant, she’s entirely open yet never lets you feel – as in life – that you’ve glimpsed the whole person.
