The Funniest People in Families, Volume 6: 250 Anecdotes
Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about families, including this one: On September 24, 1974, the daughter of actors Michael Williams and Judi Dench was born. She was named Tara Cressida Frances, but everyone called her Finty. Because Finty's parents were Shakespearean actors, she learned quotations from Shakespeare as a tiny tot. One parent would say, "I'll put a girdle around the earth ...," and Finty would finish the quotation: "in 40 minutes." If a parent asked her what King Lear says, Finty would answer, "Never, never-FIVE times!" In a Nativity play, Finty played the innkeeper's wife, and when she was asked what the play was about, she replied, "It's about this inn-keeper's wife, of course." When Finty was 11 years old, she told a friend that a play her mother was appearing in was "without doubt the most boring play I've ever seen in the whole of my life."
