And Judi has enjoyed going back to work and admits it was a "huge relief" to not only be able to film during the coronavirus pandemic, but also to do something different.
She added: "I was going to film something which has been postponed. I was, during this time, able to film with Kenneth Branagh, who wrote and directed a film about his childhood in Belfast ... We were all incredible lines to each other, taking every precaution.
"Everybody wore masks and everything. So we were well looked after. It was a huge relief to do something and it was exciting too at that time. Otherwise you wake up and think, 'What is the thing I will do today' and try to get something done."
The 'Victoria and Abdul' star has confessed she struggled without having a "work discipline" whilst she was forced to stay at home amid the coronavirus lockdown last year.
Speaking to BBC News, she shared: "It's very difficult if you don't have a work discipline to get yourself started in the morning really. It's terribly easy just to sit and do nothing."
