Olenna Tyrell was such a boss in Game of Thrones, Diana Rigg played the part perfectly. RIP. :(

I used to have the hots for her.  Maybe they will include that in the eulogy.

Woah, she looks like my youngest sister in that pic! My youngest sister is 19 years younger than Diana Riggs' death age and has green eyes, but other than that, pretty much a dead ringer.

I remembered her name for some reason as the actress who played Emma Peel before I saw her picture.
