Diana Rigg became an international sensation as Mrs. Emma Peel in the 1960s British spy series, “The Avengers.”
In 2018 CBS News’ Anthony Mason asked Rigg, “Why do you think Mrs. Peel was embraced the way she was?”
“Because she was ahead of her time,” Rigg replied. “Because she was highly intelligent, capable, witty, sexy, independent.”
“Did you enjoy it?”
“I loved it,” she replied.
