English actress, Diana Rigg, known for her roles on stage and in film including The Avengers and Game of Thrones, has died at the age of 82.

Confirming her death, Rigg’s longtime friend and talent agent, Lionel Larner, said she died “peacefully” this morning, adding that she had been “at home in England with her family who have asked for privacy at this difficult time”.

“She was a beautiful kind and generous human being that enhanced the lives of all that knew her as well as a great actress. She leaves a great void in my heart,” she said.
