Dame Judi Dench was the toast of the Olivier Awards on Sunday night. The veteran actress won a record eighth Olivier for her best supporting actress role as Paulina in Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s production of The Winter’s Tale.
No-one has won as many Oliviers for acting since the awards began 40 years ago.
As she collected her award she joked that she was “livid” because she had lost a bet with her grandson. BBC
