Diana Rigg discusses On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Diana Rigg sat down with BBC4’s Mark Lawson to discuss her career and 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service came up. There’s a 3:37 clip of it you can view by BY CLICKING HERE. Even though it’s on YouTube, embedding isn’t permitted.

Among the highlights: “I know why I did it….George Lazenby was ill-equipped. He was a model, a male model. I was there to steer him through and give it some gravitas.”

On working with Lazenby: “He was really difficult. It’s not for nothing they didn’t offer him any sequels. He was just difficult…He thought he was a film star immediately and started throwing his weight around.”

On the role of Tracy, the doomed Mrs. Bond: “The character I played had a central role and was not just a piece of fluff.”
