4. Dame Judi Dench
Dame Judi has many strings to her bow, including author and actress of both screen and stage. The 80-year-old Yorkshire lass is often hailed as one of our nation's greatest actors and has worked in theatres in far flung as the United States, Canada and even Yugoslavia! Although most noted for her stage performances, mass audiences have been able to catch this talented lady in films such as 'James Bond' film 'GoldenEye', 'A Room with a View' and 'Philomena'.
