Dame Diana Rigg

Dame Diana Rigg

Turns 70 today. Where I used to work, the organization’s President gave me the set of Hardy she had carried with her through boarding school in Switzerland. ” I learned all I know of sex from Tess of the d’Urbervilles.” For men of my generation – and I daresay quite a few women – we learned all we know of sex from Mrs. Peel.

Here is Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg on an episode of “Extras” with Ricky Gervais and Daniel Radcliffe. “May I have my jonny back?…..Thank you, Dame Diana.” (Thanks to Stirred, Straight Up, with a Twist)
