This may well be a known newspaper article, but I came across it, while sorting through family papers, in The Scottish Daily Express Newspaper for Tuesday 25th Jan 1966 :

It was on Page 11 under "Diana Rigg wants treble pay", with a picture of a long-haired Diana in a white suit sitting with her right leg on a stair bannister, and reads :

DIANA Rigg, the black-leather judo girl of ITV's "The Avengers" said last night :
"I am not going to do another series - unless they treble my pay."
Red-haired Diana (28) has been getting 150 a week for the past year as Emma Peel in the thriller series.
Old Job
She said: "The salary was fair enough. But now Emma Peel is obviously worth a lot more money. She has become an accepted character and like other successful products the price has gone up."
Yesterday Diana signed to return to her old theatre job with the Royal Shakespeare company at Stratford, where she will play Viola in "Twelfth Night" - for a mere 70 a week.

I was quite surprised to come across this while checking the pages to see if anything to do with the family should be kept; well now I'm keeping this!

(by the way, on TV that night (STV) at 8pm was The Avengers - The 13th Hole)
