Judi Dench Going Blind

Academy Award-winning actress Judi Dench tells The Daily Mirror that she has a disease that causes blindness. The 77-year old actress was diagnosed with macular degeneration and she can no longer read her own scripts. In the interview, she says that her daughter or her agent usually read to her and that she imagines the story in her mind. Worst of all, according to Dench, is that she can’t see the person across from her in a restaurant.
