The true story of the award-winning actress who became an icon as Emma Peel on The Avengers.
 
Voted the “sexiest television star of all time” by TV Guide readers, Diana Rigg is best known as the brilliant and seductive British agent Emma Peel on The Avengers. But the Tony and Emmy Award–winning actress is famous not only for her talent, but for her keen intelligence and strong opinions as well.
