One of the iconic 60's figures. She just had a certain.... something, didn't she?

RIP.

In your convoluted fucked up world, she's probably not dead. Maybe she never really existed.

I loved that show and her. I really had a thing for her at the age of 7. I had no idea she was on Game Of Thrones. I only watched the last episode. :oops: Sexy and smart, two attributes I appreciate in a woman.

I had a doomed romance with her from OHMSS. Her on screen deathhit me so hard for years. She fills a similar space to Jane Seymour and Jane Fonda to me - love them to bits. RIP.

As I wrote elsewhere, television had never seen someone so genuinely sexy before, and hasn't since. Smart, witty, caring, lovely voice, achingly beautiful... and you knew it wasn't just the character she was playing.

I loved her as Mrs. Peel, and she was fantastic on "Game of Thrones."
