And, if I had done that, you would be absolutely correct. As a matter of record, I didn't. Let's not look for offense where there is none.

Um, you said--and I quote--that she was "misremembering," that she was "probably on a set with a mocked-up car," which is not what Diana Rigg said actually happened. I fail to see how it's not disrespectful to insinuate that she was making stuff up when she said quite plainly that she herself drove the car, and when you can actually see in the actual film that she's actually driving the car.

Women can drive, too, you know. Often quite well. And we even remember having done it, surprisingly enough.



Yup, my wife drives....sheesh....all too well.....arghhhh LOL

Again, like last Drama Desk Awards, Diana Rigg has not received the Tony Award, and Winner in category "Best Featured Actress in a Musical" is Lindsay Mendez (musical Carousel).

Full list of Winners is here:

For being Emma Peel, and everything achieved, Diana deserves a very special day tomorrow.

80 years young, it's hard to believe! Happy birthday to the great Dame Diana Rigg.

This day has come - Diana Rigg has turned 80 years old. My best wishes to Diana, the fulfillment of the planned and memorable event today.

Diana Rigg on stage in 2018:



Quite wonderful and young for her age. Smile

Happy 80th birthday Diana! I'm really hoping her performance in My fair lady transfers to the West End at some point. I've never seen her act on the stage before, and this sounds a terrific production.

In honor of Dame Diana's 80th, and of her utter badassery, two Emma Peel videos I made:

Rush, "Red Barchetta": https://vimeo.com/274303395

Katy Perry, "Roar": https://vimeo.com/200283230

It would be great if this transferred to the West End. I did see her give a 20 minute talk on The Avengers at Elstree last year, but I've never seen her act on the stage. I'll keep my fingers crossed and if anyone hears more please post it here. Very Happy

Smile If she goes to Moscow, it would be more than stunningly - I would arranged a greatest event. Alas, I doubt that this will happen (although in the past, Diana visited Russia, both with the theater and on the film set). Wink
My mother a couple of years ago said that Diana for her is still the most beloved British actress. Smile Smile Smile

Denis, was Diana really in Russia? About 15 years ago I saw her in a TV movie called Zoya, which was set in Russia. Do you know if this was filmed on location in Russia Question

Yes, Rich, part of this movie was really take in St. Peterburg, Russia. I traveled there and was in the Hermitage Museum, where the shooting of the film's opening took place. Razz

Always glad for, Rich. Wink
It's interesting what further plans Diana has. Next season of series Victoria? Rolling Eyes I hope we'll find out soon. Smile
