Full Video: Watch the Downton Abbey Cast Dish Series 3 During Their NYC Q&A Panel!

Last night a lot of lucky people in New York City got to attend a special discussion and Q&A panel with the Downton Abbey cast and basically hear all about the drama’s upcoming third series straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. (No, I am certainly not dying of jealousy or anything. At all.)

Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton sat down with Downton Abbey stars Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter, Rob James-Collier, Joanne Froggatt, Sophie McShera, as well as producer Gareth Neame and moderated a panel featuring many questions from a (very excited) audience on a variety of topics. There are a few tidbits here and there about things we can expect to see in Series 3, as well as some very interesting insights into several beloved characters.

Beware: The sound on this video is quite a bit on the low end in several spots – probably something to do with the livestream equipment that recorded it last night. Be prepared to turn your volume up quite high to make sure you catch everything at a couple of points.

I have to say this cast is exceptionally adorable together. But, it must be said that Jim Carter and Rob James-Collier definitely steal the show – after watching them banter and be generally awesome for an hour, I’m about ready to start a petition for them to get some sort of TV presenting/hosting gig somewhere. They are that entertaining.

The Q&A is well worth watching, so settle in for a bit and give it a look. Downton fans everywhere will love it.
