Dame Maggie, 74, who was diagnosed last year but recovered following bouts of chemotherapy, said the intensive treatment during the filming of Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince had left her “frightened” of returning to the stage. “It leaves you so flattened,” she told The Times. “I’m not sure I could go back to theatre work, although film work is more tiring. “I’m frightened to work in theatre now.
