One of the truly great actresses. I remember her best as Emma Peel. The Avengers was one of dad's favourite shows and I bet she was the reason. Sorry to see her go!
The Game Of Thrones star, Dame Dianna Rigg died at the age of 82 after a secret battle with Cancer since March this year, revealed her daughter actress Rachael Stirling.
“My Beloved Ma died peacefully in her sleep early this morning, at home, surrounded by family,” Said Stirling in a statement “She died of cancer diagnosed in March, and spent her last months joyfully reflecting on her extraordinary life, full of love, laughter and a deep pride in her profession. I will miss her beyond words.”
The tragic news of Dianna Rigg’s death came as shock to her beloved fan base. The Dame was well known for her role as Olenna Tyrell in the world-famous Game Of Thrones series and for her role as Emma Peel in TV series The Avengers.
In addition, prior to her death, Dianna Rigg was also the only ever woman to become Mrs Bond in the James Bond Franchise. In the film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, she played the role of Tracy di Vicenzo.
