But she says although she and Mr Adams worked closely together, it did nothing for their friendship.
“We never saw each other off-screen.
“We were very friendly and very nice to each other but it was on the formal side.
“I don’t think in five years I had a serious conversation with Don once.”
Decades later, during the 1989 remake of Get Smart, their friendship blossomed.
“There was a great affection and warmth between us which stayed that way until his death.”
