Dame Diana Rigg: Actress dies aged 82

Actress Dame Diana Rigg, famous for roles including Emma Peel in TV series The Avengers and Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones, has died at the age of 82.

Dame Diana is also known for playing Tracy, the only woman who became Mrs James Bond, in 1969 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

She also appeared in ITV's Victoria.

She played the Duchess of Buccleuch in the royal drama, and can currently be seen playing Mrs Pumphrey in Channel 5's new adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small.

Dame Diana Rigg

...Her relationship with Lazenby - a man whose huge ego was in stark contrast to that of his acting talent - was difficult, although she denied deliberately eating garlic before their love scenes.


We lost a good one.

She was great in GoT, as well as pretty much everything she did.

The icons of my youth are slowly leaving this earth as I age. Alas for the loss of these people, and thanks to their memory of their amazing work, and their long lives filled with their art, their loves, and their family.

They shall live forever in their works.

From GoT:
“Must have been horrible for you as a Kingsguard, as a father. It was horrible enough for me,” she said of Joffrey’s death. “A shocking scene. Not at all what I intended. You see, I had never seen the poison work before. Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me.”

RIP Diana.

I saw the later post first, and am so sad to hear. I've enjoyed watching her in so many things since the Avengers days.

Does anyone else recall that she starred in a very short-lived TV series here in the US, maybe in the early 70s? I have a vague memory of an episode where a guy fell asleep in her bed and she couldn't wake him up to get him to leave. Being tired, her character just went to sleep on the other side of the bed. Despite there being no hanky-panky at all, shock and moral outrage ensued, and the show was cancelled. At least, that's how I remember it. Does that ring any bells? Or am I dreaming?

May she rest in peace.

RIP. She had legs to die for. And if she wrapped them around me, I would have died.
