The brilliant actor Diana Rigg has passed away at the age of 82. Diana Rigg was a venerable figure in Britain’s entertainment industry who worked incessantly on stage, TV and film. Rigg‘s agent told BBC, “She died peacefully early this morning. She was at home with her family who have asked for privacy at this difficult time.”
“She was a beautiful kind and generous human being that enhanced the lives of all that knew her as well as a great actress. She leaves a great void in my heart,” said Lionel Larner, Rigg‘s longtime friend and talent agent.
Having a key role in the biggest TV series of the past decade was a fitting career capper for Rigg. On HBO‘s “Game of Thrones,” Rigg recurred as Olenna Tyrell, also known as the Queen of Thorns, beginning with the third season in 2013. She was Emmy nominated for guest actress in a drama for her work on the show in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
