Dame Judi Dench has confirmed she will be back for Bond 23.
The Oscar-winning actress said she would reprise her role as M, James Bond’s boss, for the forthcoming instalment of the hit spy franchise, but remained tight-lipped on the story.
“Yes, I can’t tell you anything at all! Nothing… my lips are sealed,” she said.
Dame Judi – who received a gong for outstanding achievement at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards – did, however, reveal what she enjoyed about being a part of the Bond movies.
“You get to work with Daniel Craig. You get to go on location if you are very lucky and you get to wear a few sharp suits,” she added.
Sam Mendes will direct Bond 23, due for release in November 2012, with a script by Bond veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade as well as John Logan.
