Judi Dench Says Filming TikTok Videos with Her Grandson 'Saved My Life' During Lockdown

Judi Dench has found an unexpected way to keep busy amid the coronavirus pandemic: TikTok videos.

The Oscar winner, 85, has won over her fans with the viral dance routines she's recently taken part in with her grandson Sam Williams, 23.

And for Dench, being able to get hip on TikTok has kept her positive as the theater and film industries remain shut down.

"Well it saved my life," she told Channel 4 News last Wednesday. "I know nothing about TikTok. Sam is the person who is technically minded and who has all the ideas, so he got very strict."

"He made me do it," the actress admitted of her grandson. "I had to rehearse, I had to rehearse all those moves. Don't just think that comes naturally."

Dench and Sam also showed off their dance moves on TikTok in April, though the performance was done virtually as the pair were apart at the time due to the pandemic.

Dancing along to the song “Cheryl” by Yung Gravy, Sam propped up an iPad that had Dench demonstrating the viral routine on the screen, while he synced up his moves standing in the background.

By the end of the routine, Sam applauded his grandmother for completing the choreography with no errors.
