Actress Diana Rigg has died at the age of 82.
While she was best known for her roles as Emma Peel in the 1960s British television spy series, The Avengers (not to be confused with the Marvel franchise), Teresa di Vicenzo in the 1969 James Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and Olenna Tyrell in the HBO series, Game of Thrones, she also appeared on Broadway four times. She made her main stem debut in 1971 starring in Ronald Miller’s play, Abelard and Heloise. She followed that up with an appearance in 1975 in The Misanthrope. In 1994, Diana Rigg starred as the title character in a revival of Medea, which won her a Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play. Her fourth and final Broadway appearance was in 2018 when she played Mrs. Higgins in Lincoln Center Theater’s recent revival of My Fair Lady.September 10, 2020 at 6:49 pm #1203698208
