Dame Diana Rigg’s career has spanned much-loved roles from Emma Peel in The Avengers to James Bond's wife Tracy opposite George Lazenby as Ian Fleming's 007 in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) to Lady Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones. On March 9, 2019, Dame Diana will be interviewed on stage at London's Soutbank Centre.

This rare close encounter with the writer and broadcaster Edward Seckerson promises to leave no stone unturned – or in the words of Rigg’s much-lauded collection of the worst ever theatrical reviews, No Turn Unstoned.

Last year, Diana Rigg returned to Broadway in a revival of Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady, for which she earned a Tony Award nomination.



Her career began at the Royal Shakespeare Company (BSC), where she shared a stage with Laurence Olivier when she was barely out of The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).

She created leading roles in two plays by Tom Stoppard, Jumpers and Night and Day, and has received rave reviews in the great tragic roles including Medea (on Broadway), Mother Courage (at The National), Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and a Ted Hughes-translated Phèdre (at the Almeida).

She has won some of theatre and television’s most coveted awards. One of UK's most distinguished actresses, she was made a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 1988 and a DBE (Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 1994.

Tickets for the evening with Dame Diana Rigg can be ordered from the Southbank Centre.
