My one Judi Dench story is that a few years back Mom and I were in London, and Mom had gotten us tickets to see her in The Royal Family, which is a play about a dysfunctional theatre family loosely based on the Barrymores, IIRC. Dench played the matriarch and in her grand death scene she was holding a wineglass as she collapsed backwards into a chair, and when she threw her arm up as she did so, the glass fell on the floor and smashed (as it clearly was supposed to do), but a chunk of it flew out into the audience and nailed some poor sap right in the head (as it clearly was not supposed to do). :)
Judi Dench is ♥
