Superstar Judi Dench is a proud mother to Finty Williams, who is her only daughter. The 48-year-old actress is her child with her husband, Michael Williams, who sadly passed away in 2001.

After Finty’s birth, Dench was committed to raising her properly and being around her always. Due to this, she even considered quitting Hollywood and staying at home. However, her late husband talked her out of doing so.

Consequently, Dench struggled to maintain a fine balance between her career and taking care of her daughter. During those days, both Dench and Michael performed in plays and raised Finty in a tiny, rented apartment.

Today, Dench’s career has hit the peak of Hollywood stardom, and Finty continues to trail the same path. With a number of films and other projects under her belt, she seems to be making her mother proud with her Hollywood adventures.

However, when Finty first started acting, Dench wasn’t quite so sure about it. In fact, she was even scared of her little daughter pursuing a career in Hollywood. Dench admitted to Express that it was an absolute nightmare. She said:

"I think that people, you know, compare and say things. I don’t think it’s kind when people do that at all, I think it makes it very, very difficult, and nor do I think there’s a necessity for it."
