Judi Dench....Gielgud's stage and screen career spanned 75 years and he is one of the only people to receive an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy and a Tony....Gielgud's plaque was unveiled at 16 Cowley Street, Westminster - the beloved home he lived in from 1945 to 1976. Gielgud frequently entertained friends and colleagues at Cowley Street and, from the 1960s, shared the home with his partner, Martin Hensler." (Submitted on October 20, 2017.)
