    93 YO. The Original Avenger - John Steed, And BSGTOS - Count Iblis, a few appearances of shows like Columbo among other fine roles. He could play a thoroughly Likable good guy, or a slimy, Nasty Villain, either way, he had that air of "Class" about him. Thank you for the memories Sir.

    I Wish the Avengers Movie done in the 90s hadn't been such a POS.

    The real first Avenger ...

    I think the first movie I must have seen him in was the Bond movie A View to a Kill.

    Always enjoyed his work, but 93 is a very long life. Wasn't Lee 93 as well when he passed last week?

    Adios, Patrick.

    RIP Patrick Macnee. I grew up watching him, the Avengers, Battlestar Galactica (The Imperious Leader, narrator, AND Count Iblis)...too bad, the world has been losing so many great actors lately.

    R.I.P. Steed.
    Always loved The Avengers. I used to watch it after school in the 80's.
    Sad news.

    Man, was just watching The Howling again for the millionth time.

    He was one of a kind and created an Iconic role as John Steed

    Just finished re-watching the Battlestars with my son. Sad to lose him, but 93 is a good long life.

    It certainly seems like a lot of my childhood is passing away this year.

    Rest in well earned peace, sir!

    I will always remember my mom (passed away last year) and me staying up after the evening news to watch reruns of the New Avengers back in the 80s. Later I discovered the originals and fell in love with them. I have never seen anything prior to Mrs. Peel, however. As a huge Game of Thrones fan, I'm embarressed to admit that I didn't realize, until very recently, that Diana Rigg plays Olenna Tyrell. I know she's pushing 80, but in my heart she will always be Emma Peel.

    The other night the wife and I were watching "This is Spinal Tap" and during the party scene who is one of the guests? I shouted from the living room, "Holy crap! It's Count Iblis!" The wife ran in from the kitchen, took a look at the screen and said, "oh, yeah!" :lol Again, my wife is the best!

    RIP, sir.
