Diana Rigg dies at 82Diana Rigg, a British actress who became a 1960s style icon as secret agent Emma Peel in the TV series “The Avengers,” died Thursday of cancer at the age of 82.

Rigg’s agent Simon Beresford said she died Thursday morning at home with her family. Her daughter, Rachael Stirling, said she was diagnosed with cancer in March.

Rigg starred in “The Avengers” alongside Patrick McNee’s bowler-hatted John Steed. The pair were an impeccably dressed duo who fought villains and traded quips in a show whose mix of adventure and humor was enduringly influential.

In 1969, Rigg also had a major role in the sixth installment of the James Bond franchise “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” She played Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo or Tracy Bond, who married 007. Riggs starred alongside George Lazenby, who played the titular Bond.
