DIANA RIGG SCREENING
Breaking news: The BFI will host a screening of classic Avengers episodes- and Dame Diana Rigg will be there to discuss her work on the series! Although Rigg has spoken warmly about her co-star Patrick Macnee and about how The Avengers opened doors in her career, she has famously kept a distance from Avengers fans and events. Now the BFI is celebrating Rigg's 50th anniversary on the show- if only I could be back in London next month! Here are the details from the BFI press release: The Avengers: The House That Jack Built + discussion with Dame Diana Rigg. Discover Emma Peel’s backstory and hear from the great actress who played her. In a key episode (written by Brian Clemens), we discover Emma Peel’s backstory as she’s trapped in a strange house fighting a deadly machine programmed to kill her. The screening will be followed by an on-stage chat with Dame Diana Rigg about her time in The Avengers and her work with co-star Patrick Macnee, who sadly died earlier this year. Also screening: The Return of the Cybernauts. Sunday, October 25th. Ticket info here. Thanks to Double O Section for putting this on my radar. Enjoy!
