“Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me.” A line that will live on forever. Rest In Peace, Queen of Thorns.
Diana Rigg portrayed a strong, fearless & witty character that stood out from the rest of the characters like a golden rose on a green field.
On this sad day. Game of Thrones fans will be Growing Strong (House Tyrell words) in unity to remember a character that empowered the on screen characters and the viewers.
“The lords of Westeros are sheep. Are you a sheep? No, you’re a dragon. Be a dragon.” – Olenna

I’m so glad that IGN actually listed OHMSS. Every other article I’ve read mentions GoT and Avengers, but never the Bond flick. She was a Bond girl, and arguably the Bond girl.
