I want to say that I hope she passed peacefully, but I always had the impression she was a real firebrand, so instead I hope she went out shouting at Death to be quiet and wait his turn while smarter people are speaking.
Clinton Rawls, the translator behind the website Comics Royale 007, has this lovely epitaph as tribute:
"Heartbroken to read the news of Dame Diana Rigg’s passing, but if art lives forever then we truly have all the time in the world."
An iconic performer in film, stage and theatre, who shall always be remembered for the certainty of life she breathed into her characters. For Mrs Emma Peel, Edwina Lionheart, Olenna Tyrell, Mrs Gillyflower, Tracy Bond and many more names and roles besides. According to IMDb, at least seventy known. Always an innovator, always helping to lead new forms of storytelling along their way. And always approaching her roles with her unique brand of wit, charm and archetypal elegance. Rest in peace, Dame Rigg.
"Courage isn't a matter of not being frightened you know; It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway."
