Judy was born in Yorkshire.  She was originally trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) and made her stage debut with "Fools Rush In" in 1954.

It wasn't until mid-career in the late 60s that she drew the type of widespread attention she deserved.  She earned critical acclaim for her Gertrude in the 1969 stage production of "Hamlet", which starred Nicol Williamson in the title role, Anthony Hopkins as Claudius, and an oddly cast Marianne Faithfull (Mike Jagger's girl friend in the 60's) as Ophelia.

Judy was then in a number of TV adaptations of literary classics including "Pride and Prejudice" and "The Jewel in the Crown".

Judy was featured in the film Bourne Identity, (2002), in the role of a psychologist, but her scene ended up on the cutting room floor. It reappeared as a 'deleted scene' in the DVD edition.
