    Emma Peel kicked ass literally, Joanna Lumley (OHMSS) was also in The New Avengers as Purdey several years later. (And Honor Blackman was in the show before Diana Rigg)

    The Avengers has a lot of Bond connections.

    Loving those Avengers compilations. Goodness me, Diana was so charming.

    That’s terrific.

    George is a great man, touching words from him. RIP Diana.
    And to add: loved her role in Game Of Thrones.

    Wow. First Honor Blackman in April and now Diana Rigg. It's like a double shock to me. I've been aware of Ms. Rigg ever since I saw reruns of the old "The Avengers" series when I was a kid. You know what? I don't know what else to say. The news was a bit of a shock to me. R.I.P. Ms. Rigg. You will be missed.

    And Claudine Auger in December. The first main Bond girl to go. She wasn’t even that old.

    Nice! Makes me want to go watch the whole series right now! ( Iv only seen a few episodes here and there ).
  • Stunned when I heard the news. Quite simply the best Bond girl/wife in the series. First saw Dame Diana in The Avengers. Beautiful,talented feisty. Huge crush from then onwards.
    I remember seeing OHMSS in the cinema as a young boy and crying my eyes out at the sudden tragic end. Couldn't believe Emma Peel (as I thought of her at the time) had been killed.

    Sad sad day but will always be a little in love with the awesome Ms Rigg.

    RIP and condolences to her family.

    Sorry for being late. She was an incredible talent and will always be remembered as one of the best and most iconic Bond actress ever. RIP, sweet Tracy.

    I always get a pit in my stomach when I see that this thread was been updated, but thanks for the heads up @Mallory.

    RIP Mr. Michael Lonsdale.

    With a series as sprawling as this, it's sad being able to expect a new death from the cast and crew every week or so. RIP, Michael, what a fantastic career.

    Sad times, he was a great actor. Drax had so many cool lines and he delivered them beautifully.

    Bugger. This is very sad news.
    He was one of my fave villains as a child. I only watched The Day of the Jackal just last week. He was absolutely superb in the role of Label.
    He will be sorely missed.

    I'm very sorry to have stumbled upon this news. Moonraker was a childhood favorite and Drax is a very underrated Bond Villain. Lonsdale was great in everything else I saw him in too. RIP.

    RIP Michael Lonsdale. Enjoyed him in everything I’ve seen him in, and he was a rock solid Bond villain!

    RIP Michael Lonsdale, such a great actor.
    Not only in our Moonraker, but in so much more. He'll be missed. :(
