She was so beautiful, quick witted. And floated over those personal perverted questions with total freedom. Rest in peace Ms. Rigg.

Often when you see actors outside their roles there is a disappointment (maybe unfairly) in that they don't appear to live up to the character they play.
Diana Rigg is every bit Emma Peel in intelligence, wit, and class.

Michael O'Neale:
I am so sad she has passed away. One of England’s greatest daughters. When I was a little boy Emma Peel was my first crush. After that I followed her career. She wasn’t just a sexy women. She was brilliant. Intelligent, and a very powerful actress. Only Bond girl who could act. I love how so candid she is. England, and the world is sadder without her. Rest in Peace Diana.

I adored Diana in the Avengers as a kid, she was amazing as Ms Peel. Diana is still a very beautiful woman who has aged so well, without going under the knife.

She epitomized class and elegance while being hysterically funny at the same time. So few have that ability.

She was great. Not many leading ladies today with that kind of sparky quick intelligence. The very speed of her delivery of quality responses was impressive here.

She was my first crush! Seeing a strong woman who could deal with stupid questions as she did here with this dreadful interviewer.
John Kochen
John Kochen:
When I saw her in Game of Thrones and read in the credits that it was Diana Rigg, I was shocked to realize that she had grown old. Somehow, in my mind, she was always Emma Peel which is silly when you think of it but there you are.

Lester Aizlewood:
The dream girl of every teenage boy in the 1960's. Farewell beautiful Diana.

Dianna is a beautiful lady! I used to watch the Avengers in Argentina many years later when I used to drive a cab in New York city, who is one of my passengers? DIANNA! I couldn't beleve it! She was so pleasant, she said, that was doing a show on Broadway! I told her that she used to speak spanish she smiled, and off course she gave an autograph!

Forever young. Life is a cruel joke and the punchline is growing old. Now, yet another bit of our youth excised from our lives.

Not hard to understand why she so often "got the part".

I was in my teens when she was interviewed. It's crystal clear to me how much she and Emma Peel influenced me. RIP, my heroine.
Mark Stevens

I’ll never know what the craze over ‘Parky’ was .... generally dull ..... just me .... 🤷🏼‍♂️🤔
Tom Moncrieff
Tom Moncrieff:
Diana's views remain so timeless, refreshing, witty and generous, while Malcolm Muggeridge, so revered by the BBC of old, even then was a relic of a repressive, censorious and quite ridiculous archaic way of thinking.

The usual Parkinson innuendo filled interview
Ontario Andrews
Ontario Andrews:
I honestly don't know much about her, but I love her in this interview. I don't know for a fact, but I suspect she is Goldie Hawn's role model.

She was great in the detectorists

Wonderful woman, wonderful actress. A sad day. Rest in peace, Dame Diana. 💜
Robert Townsend
Robert Townsend:
Mike Parkinson always said that Diana Rigg was the most 'ravishingly attractive' woman he had ever met...his words not mine! She was at her sexiest in the classic comic horror movie Theater of Blood with Vincent Price. There was one hilarious scene where she 'came on' to old Harry Andrews who must have been nearly sixty at the time. Harry Andrews was as gay as a tulip in real life, but he should have got an academy award for pretending to fall for Ms Riggs charms so utterly convincingly.
Bill Keon
Bill Keon:
What a stunning knockout, even more for her personality. Was one of my first childhood crushes when I was about 8 or 9 when the Avengers was on tv
Mark Gable
Mark Gable:
Diana Rigg looked amazing in the leather catsuit in the 60's avengers series. It was very riskey even for now. it was like a S&M outfit with zips . Wow. Google it and see for yourselves.

2020: just when I thought it couldn't get any worse my all time #1 female icon has gone ..so sad .
David of Yorkshire
David of Yorkshire:
The BBC requirement for perfect speach back then, it's why everyone thought this was British English... Now they want the accent....

This is what strong, confident, admired and respected women used to be like... Now they call all men misogynists and deny they have part in life at all... It's a real shame all these "progressives" have progressed into insanity.

Is Diana Rigg an extension of Emma Peel or is it the other way around? Any way you look it, both are a legend of class, intelligence, and wit. I am so glad she gave us the Emma Peel character.
John Michalek
John Michalek:
Every boy and man in England was in love with Diana in the sixties, she was everything a guy could ask for in a woman. When I heard of Diana's passing I cried a tear. You see she was part of my history, a nice part. Always love you Diana. See you in heaven.

Remarkable that Ms Rigg would deign to speak civily to these lecherous self-righteous creeps. What's even more remarkable is the interviewer's stylishly grotesque forehead combover + muttonchops.

Isn't it great to know there is people like this lady an absolute gem.
She's just amazing because she's real

*She was a voracious reader, and said she had a full life: She loved her profession as an actress, but also did other things besides her work. She liked to travel, and had gone to Bhutan, and many other places - to experience and live life!*

I always thought Parkinson was massively overrated as an interviewer....he was just lucky to be around when there were great guests available with great stories, he is not that good
Karen Mount
Karen Mount:
There is somehing very uncomfortably creepy about M P's interviewing technique with Diana as with Helen Mirren. Apparent looking back, but not so much a the time.
