Judi Dench has stopped driving: How to know when you should, too

Being a passenger may be one of Dame Judi Dench’s most challenging roles yet.

The celebrated actress got candid about her health in a recent RadioTimes interview, revealing that she cannot drive anymore due to her deteriorating eyesight from macular degeneration.

“A couple of years ago I stopped driving, which was one of the most traumatic moments of my life,” said Dench, 84, who will make a brief cameo in the next “James Bond” film. “It was absolutely appalling. But I just know I’ll kill somebody if I get behind the wheel of a car now.”

Dench, a seven-time nominee who earned an Academy Award for playing Queen Elizabeth I in 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love,” first disclosed that she has age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, in 2012.
