Dame Judi Dench sprains ankle after fallMarch 21st, 2009 - 5:04 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Mar 21 (ANI): British actress Dame Judi Dench was rushed to hospital after badly spraining her ankle in a fall.
The Oscar winner was exiting the Wyndham theatre, where she is starring in new play Madame De Sade, when she tripped over a stage door and got hurt.
The Casino Royale star has been forced to temporarily pull out of a new London play.
She is now nursing an injured ankle and has been ordered to rest.
However, she is determined to be getting back at work next week.
“As Judi Dench was leaving the theatre, she tripped at the stage door and fell. She was taken to Accident and Emergency, where she was diagnosed with a severely sprained ankle, Contactmusic quoted Denchs spokesperson as saying.
“Doctors have advised that she bring no weight to bear on her foot for the time being. As a consequence, Judi’’s role of Madame de Montreuil will be performed this weekend by her understudy Marjorie Hayward.
“The Donmar theatre company and Judi apologise for any upset or inconvenience this may cause, and wish to reassure those with tickets that it is her intention to return to the role next week,” the rep added. (ANI)
