A Class Act


Diana Rigg was a class act
You can tell this from the above scene from Game Of  Thrones where she underplays her role magnificently but still spits out the insults with such quiet venom
I saw her just once on stage , and that was in Sheffield in 2004 in a production of a Suddenly Last Summer 
“Each day we would carve each day like a piece of sculpture “
She was wonderful

  1. When I was a kid, she was probably my first celebrity crush. She and her black leather cat suit as Emma Peel in "The Avengers." Farewell to her!

    Long ago, I loved Diana Rigg on "The Avengers", too, and she was indeed a class act. May she rest in peace.

    Hugs!

  4. Interesting Obit in The Times. She died of cancer and into her eighties she smoked 20 a day and drove a sports car. Quite a girl. And as Barbara Anne above says - Rest in Peace Diana.

  9. She was my idol as a child - I dreamed of training at RADA ... then I realised what a hard and unforgiving career the stage would be, and grew up. I loved her as Mrs Peel, and the few classical productions I've seen her in were stunning. We never got into Game of Thrones, but that clip was powerful. The Obit I read didn't mention family at all - did she have any?

  10. I would have loved to see her in "Suddenly Last Summer,one of my favorite William' plays. How lucky you were. I am assuming she played Sebastian's Mum. I was lucky too, a couple of years ago when I saw her as Henry Higgens' Mum. Did not know she would be in the performance I attended.You as well as I both have our memories.

  11. I too always loved her work. Emma Peel was the epitome of sophistication and yet all her work has been great. Mrs Bradley mysteries! and with her daughter, Rachel Stirling in "the detectorists". she was such a versatile actress. she will be missed.

  12. I said it all on Blobby's blog yesterday, but I'll only say here that my admiration for her [in so many respects] will ever be unbounded.
    I saw her too in only the one production on stage - 1987 in 'Follies' - which I saw twice.
    Leaving an unfillable shadow behind her, we wish her a gracious goodbye, replete with gratitude.

  17. I too loved her as Emma Peel and my favourite Christmas present was an Emma Peel doll complete with leathers and a gun in her hand. She remained a fine actress and a lady of grace. She will be missed.

  21. An incredible actress, with such a range! She was the epitome of cool, with a wicked sense of humor.

  22. She definitely had "class." I always enjoyed watching her performances. Wish we had more females of that nature around these days. Hugs, John from across The Pond.
