Judi Dench 'Threatens To Quit' Bond Role?
The Brit legend, who won an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, has played 007's boss for over a decade.
But despite being referred to as the “real Bond girl”, co-producer BARBARA BROCCOLLI has revealed silver-haired Judi is contemplating waving goodbye.
Barbara told Comingsoon.net: “She is our anchor. She is the anchor of the film in terms of the character. She is the only authoritative figure in Bond's life.
“She had such a great relationship with Pierce on the screen and she has such a great relationship with Daniel. She is our anchor. She is the real Bond girl!
"The one that keeps it all going, and I don't want her to leave. She keeps threatening to leave but I will not let her!”
Judi first took on the role of M in 1995, opposite PIERCE BROSNAN in GoldenEye. She has since starred in eight secret agent flicks, including The World Is Not Enough and 2006's Casino Royale.
