Dame Judi Dench Becomes a TikTok Sensation After Grandson Shows Off Her Dance Moves

Dame Judi Dench seems to be taking the opportunity to learn new skills while the U.K.'s in lockdown.

Her grandson Sam Williams shared a video on the social media platform TikTok in which the Oscar-winning actress busts some moves to Yung Gravy’s trap track "Cheryl."

The clip has been widely shared on other social media platforms, helping Sam to amass nearly 45,000 TikTok followers.


The clip has become so popular that Dame Judi's grandson has even been interviewed about it. "I love the fact that I'm doing it with my grandma," he told Insider. "And for me it's not about the views; for me it's trying to put a smile onto people's faces. And in this time of so much uncertainty, to get someone to smile or have that bit of light in their day, that's all I care about."

Dame Judi doesn't use social media herself, but before social distancing rules became stricter, she made a Twitter video with her broadcaster friend Gyles Brandreth urging folks to wash their hands thoroughly to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


She also shared a sweet message on her daughter Finty Williams' Twitter account, encouraging fans to "just keep laughing" as they self-isolate during the pandemic.


Never change, Dame Judi!
