Diana Rigg c.1966

Uncredited Publicity Shot Diana Rigg as Emma Peel on the Avengers c.1966 “Becoming a sex symbol overnight shocked me. I didn’t know how to handle it and I kept all the unopened fan mail in the boot of my car because I didn’t know how to respond and thought it was rude to throw it away. Then my mother became my secretary and replied to the really inappropriate ones saying: ‘My daughter’s far too old for you. Go take a cold shower!’” – Diana Rigg
