Judi Dench reveals she once saved the life of her pet GOLDFISH by giving it mouth to mouth

She’s one of the finest actresses to ever grace the stage and screen. 

And Judi Dench has revealed that acting is not her only talent, as she recounted once resuscitating her pet goldfish with the kiss of life. 

Speaking on Chris Evans’ How To Wow podcast, the 85-year-old said the remarkable incident happened years ago, but her fish has now passed away in spite of its owner’s life-saving skills.

The Victoria and Abdul star said: ‘My goldfish recently died. I once gave it the kiss of life.

‘It died when it was very little and I gave it the kiss of life and it grew to be six inches long. We kept it in a nice tank.’ 

Dame Judi also spoke about working on the 007 franchise, in which she played MI6 boss M in a total of seven films over 17 years.

She said: ‘As M, I just played it like the person in the script, hopefully, and like the intention.

‘She got to tell Bond off quite a lot and be quite bossy and I had to assert myself a bit, as there has not been a woman M before.

‘I went about it like playing any part. You rely on the director and the people you are acting with and hope for the best.’

The Mrs Brown star added that she once complained to producer Barbara Broccoli that M never got to travel, while Daniel Craig was off shooting all across the world.

She told: ‘It was just wonderful but I was kept in that office all the time and I complained to Barbara Broccoli and said, “Everybody goes to glamorous places and I am in that office all the time”.

‘We did one of them when we were at Stowe School and I was in this big trailer with Innsbruck written along the side.

‘They said, “You can never complain again because you have been in Innsbruck”. But I loved it. I was drunk with power.’ 

Judi’s interview comes as she recently revealed to Channel 4 News that TikTok ‘saved her life’ this year amid the coronavirus crisis.

The Philomena actress delighted her fans by joining her 22-year-old grandson Sam Williams in a slew of light-hearted videos during lockdown.

Judi said: ‘It saved my life. It’s just that every day is so uncharted. You wake up and you wonder what day it is and then you wonder what date it is and sometimes what month.

‘And then you think, “Well what do I do today?” And if the prospect is, “Well, what is there to do today?”‘ 

Judi initially began appearing virtually in Sam’s choreographed TikTok dances from their individual homes, before the lifting of lockdown restrictions meant they could film together at a social distance.
