To help celebrate the birthday of Mrs. Emma Peel, I thought I would scan cards in the Strictly Ink Avengers Series One collectible card set that feature Diana Rigg. I figured many people hadn't seen these before....
She has won a BAFTA (British Emmy) in 1990 for "Mother Love," a Tony in 1994 for "Medea," and an Emmy in 1997 for "Rebecca." And she was Emmy-nominated twice for her role as Emma Peel... but lost both times to a sister spy, Barbara Bain on Mission: Impossible!
She was named a Dame of the British Empire in 1994 for her contributions to British film and theatre.
And as of last week, she is back in comic-books. I will try to review her appearances soon! If you are interested, this is ON SALE NOW!
Happy Birthday, Dame Diana Rigg!
