Intelligent and perceptive actress whose career has encompassed James Bond films (On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)), the television series, The Avengers, and many roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company amongst much else. Born in DOncaster, in the north of England, Diana trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and her first appearance on stage was as Natella Abashwili in The Caucasian Chalk Circle at the Theatre Royal, York. She is currently appearing in the Muppet film and writing her own book.
I photographed her specifically for this book as the only previous photographs I had of her were taken for the Radio Times, featuring Diana as a nun, a prostitute and a failed actress. At that session, she adopted each of these persons in quick succession, without make-up, within one hour.Diana's picture
