RIP, Diana Rigg.

Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg DBE
(July 20, 1938 – September 10, 2020)

Diana Rigg has passed away at 82. She was a great actress, doing fabulous work on stage, on TV and on film.

What always impressed me about her was that she went after good work — from Shakespeare to The Avengers to a James Bond movie to Theatre Of Blood (1973) — nothing seemed to be beneath her if she found it interesting. And she was always terrific.

Here she is with George Lazenby working on On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969). Note the banner for Corgi toys, the company that made those great die-cast James Bond toys.

    Toby, when you say, ” The great Diana Rigg has passed away at 82. She was a great actress, doing fabulous work on stage, on TV and on film.” It is well worth repeating, because that comment says it all.

    Too me Diana Rigg was, hands down, always a pleasure to watch in anything. When I first saw her as Mrs. Emma Peel in THE AVENGERS on ABC-TV in 1966, I thought that she was drop faint beautiful in her energized portrayal of the cooler than cool black-suited karate self-defense expert. She was unforgettable bar none. A magnificent performer and a giant in the acting profession.

    DAME DIANA RIGG R.I.P.
