    Happy Birthday today to Tracy Draco aka. Mrs James Bond aka. Dame Diana Rigg

    First made famous for her role as Emma Peel in the original ‘The Avengers’, which she played from 1965 through to 1967, she rose to the ranks of Bond in 1969’s ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. Plagued by rumours of on set friction with the one-time Bond George Lazenby it wouldn’t be the hight of her career.

    Today, however, she acts mostly in television series. Most recently ‘Victoria & Albert’.

    She was born on the 20th of July 1938 in Doncaster, Yorkshire which is of course in Great Britain!

    Happy Birthday Dame Diana and thanks to NJ for sending this in!
